Jennifer Aniston, Owen Wilson Celebrate Peter Bogdanovich at ‘She’s Funny That Way’ Premiere

20 August 2015 2:11 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After a feature film hiatus of more than a decade, Peter Bogdanovich came back in a big way, and the stars came up out to support the director at the Los Angeles premiere of “She's Funny That Way” Wednesday at the Harmony Gold in West Hollywood.

Bogdanovich attended along with film stars Owen Wilson, Imogen Poots, Kathryn Hahn and Jennifer Aniston, who made her first public appearance since her secret wedding ceremony on Aug. 5. Sporting a yellow gold wedding band with channel-set pave diamonds, Aniston said new husband Justin Theroux was shooting “The Leftovers” and unable to attend.

Quentin Tarantino walked the red carpet and shared how excited he was to make a cameo appearance as himself in the film.

“I just wanted to be able to say that when I go to my grave, ‘I was in a Peter Bogdanovich.'”

Funny Ha-ha: Bogdanovich’s Pleasant Return to the Screwball Comedy

The buzz has been rather hushed concerning She’s Funny That Way, the return of 70s auteur man following a thirteen year feature hiatus (his last was the 2001 film The Cat’s Meow). An ode to the classic screwball comedies of yore, where filmmakers like Lubitsch, Hawks, and several others birthed the prized frameworks, Peter Bogdanovich doesn’t manage to successfully contemporize these antics into the frothy delight of famous predecessors. If you can forgive it these blatant and inescapable anachronistic variations however, it’s an often funny, charming, and ultimately entertaining film.

A filmmaker consistently obsessed with a particular Golden Age of Hollywood’s heyday, his latest is no exception, a long gestating project once imagined as a vehicle for John Ritter. Pleasantly entertaining, it’s not so much that Bogdanovich has lost his touch—in many regards the »

Win She’s Funny That Way On DVD

10 August 2015 1:05 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


To celebrate the release of She’s Funny That Way, available now on DVD, we are giving 3 lucky readers the chance to win a copy.

In Peter Bogdanovich’s much-anticipated return to the silver screen, She’s Funny That Way, young Hollywood starlet Isabella (Imogen Poots) recalls how the actions of charming Broadway director, Arnold (Owen Wilson), changed her life forever. A classic style New York romantic comedy with touches of classic screwball and a sprinkling of terrific cameos, the former escort reminisces to a reporter (Illeana Douglas) about her rags to riches fairy tale – a chain of events affecting the lives of everyone involved, including Arnold’s wife Delta (Kathryn Hahn), leading man Seth (Rhys Ifans), playwright Joshua (Will Forte) and even Isabella’s therapist, Jane (Jennifer Aniston). Although completely modern in its characters, situations, and settings, She’s Funny That Way harks back to the landmarks of »

She’s Funny That Way DVD Review

7 August 2015 11:31 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Peter Bogdanovich

Starring: Imogen Poots, Owen Wilson, Kathryn Hahn, Rhys Ifans, Will Forte, Jennifer Aniston, Austin PendletonGeorge Morfogen

Certificate: 12

Running Time: 93 Minutes

Special Features: Behind-the-scenes.

I’ve often hear that Peter Bogdanovich is one of those directors that actors just love to work with and after She’s Funny That Way, I thoroughly appreciate why. If truth were told, I don’t know his body of work that well but here I sensed the essence of Woody Allen that was combined with the likes of Noah Baumbach and Wes Anderson. What’s particularly interesting about those latter two modern heroes is they’re executive producers on this movie and I might well guess that Bogdanovich may have more than a little influence on their unique projects and styles.

She’s Funny That Way, originally titled Squirrels to the Nuts in production, is a comedy-romp in the best sense. »

Peter Bogdanovich's screwball comedy is chock-full of stars, so many, in fact, that the trailer might even confuse you quite a bit. Let's break it down: Owen Wilson is playing a director who casts his call girl (Imogen Poots) in a play, opposite his wife (Kathryn Hahn) and her ex (Rhys Ifans). Meanwhile, Jennifer Aniston is playing the call girl's therapist, who is in a relationship with the play's playwright (Will Forte), who is secretly falling for the call girl. Clear enough? We got our hands on some exclusive character cards that will make things a lot simpler. Take a look, and get excited for the movie, out on Aug. 21! »

Five "Must-See" Movies for August 2015

31 July 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Well, it's finally August, and while the summer movie season isn't completely over it might as well be. This article was a difficult one to put together, because there just isn't much to recommend this month. But you know what, that's okay, I think I managed to pull together five solid titles for the "must-see" section, and lucky for us the fall festival season is just around the corner, which means things are about to heat up exponentially on the prestige movie front just in time to compensate for things cooling down outside as the seasons change. (I should note here, it is currently 106 degrees fahrenheit here in the desert, and the thought of things cooling down is marvelous, but also very premature.) We are coming off what turned out to be a pretty solid month last month, in my opinion, as I settled back into my routine after a »
