Watch: Trailer For Tennis Comedy 'Break Point' Starring Jeremy Sisto, J.K. Simmons, Amy Smart, And More

  • The Playlist
Sports as metaphor and conduit for personal change is not a new thing in cinema, but it's not too often we see tennis courts used for this thematic backdrop, nor for the setting of a comedy. But "Break Point" just does that. And after spending some time on the festival circuit last year, including a debut at SXSW, the movie is now headed to theaters and a new trailer has arrived. TV comedy veteran Jay Karas directs Jeremy Sisto, David Walton, Joshua Rush, J.K. Simmons, Amy Smart, Vincent Ventresca and Adam Devine in this film about a fading tennis champ who teams up with estranged brother for one last run at glory. Here's the official synopsis: Jimmy Price is a reckless man-child on the last leg of his career as a doubles tennis player. When his latest partner drops him, he realizes he’s officially burned all of his bridges on the pro circuit.

SXSW Film Review: ‘Break Point’

SXSW Film Review: ‘Break Point’
Undeniably likable in its own breezy, resolutely unambitious way, Jay Karas’ tennis laffer “Break Point” manages to generate decent laughs, even if its reliance on indie-comedy formula borders on the pathological. Starring a well-matched Jeremy Sisto (who also has story credit, alongside scripter Gene Hong) and David Walton as two odd-couple brothers and doubles partners, the film ought to attract modest distrib interest, although its prospects are far more regional tournament than Grand Slam-sized.

Sisto plays Jimmy, a 35-year-old man-child journeyman (journeyman-child?) tennis pro whose career is already a few years past its expiration date. Thanks to his Ilie Nastase-like court demeanor and Pat Rafter-style approach to pregame drinking, he’s just lost his doubles partner (Cy Amundson), and he’s become enough of a circuit joke that no one else will agree to play with him as he looks to make one last go for a major tournament.

SXSW Exclusive: Jeremy Sisto Wants To Be A Better Tennis Partner In Clip From Comedy 'Break Point'

  • The Playlist
What does it take to be a good partner? Openness, communication, an active interest in what's important to the person you're with. It's good advice for your love life, but as Jeremy Sisto finds out in "Break Point," those tips work well on the tennis court too.  Director Jay Karas, who has logged time behind the camera on "Workaholics," "Parks & Recreation," "Raising Hope" and "After Lately," makes his feature debut here rounding up a pretty solid ensemble including David Walton, Joshua Rush, J.K. Simmons, Amy Smart, Adam DeVine, Chris Parnell, Vincent Ventresca, Cy Amundson and Jenny Wade. Co-written by and starring Sisto, the story follows a former tennis pro that has burned his bridges, who makes one last swing at the big time, and rounds up his estranged brother to once again join him on the court. And in this exclusive clip, we see both how far they've been apart,

Flying Monkeys Attack Syfy This Weekend

This weekend while Disney is hoping you’ll flock in droves to see Sam Raimi’s Oz: The Great and Powerful, Syfy will be premiering a new Oz-inspired creature feature that I suspect Sam Raimi would approve of: Flying Monkeys!

Robert Rodriguez’s niece-in-law Electra Avellan (aka one of the babysitter twins from Grindhouse), TV’s “The Invisible ManVincent Ventresca, and actor stuntman Alvin Chon star in the Syfy Original Movie about a teenage girl living in Gale, Kansas, who gets a new pet monkey that turns out to be an evil, flying shapeshifter.

Visual effects supervisor Robert Grasmere makes his directorial debut with this new spin on the creatures made famous as the Wicked Witch of the West’s henchmonsters. What, if anything, this Syfy flick has to do with the Land of Oz outside of mean monkeys with wings remains to be seen.

[Review] Answers to Nothing

  • The Film Stage
So much happens in Matthew Leutwyler’s Answers to Nothing, but how much is actually relevant? An adulterous husband with a rockstar mistress and lawyer wife, a police detective best friend and her key suspect in a child kidnapping case, a recently graduated police officer and his grade school teacher neighbor, a racist black television writer and the soundboard mixer she meets while walking their dogs, and a recovering alcoholic caring for her brain dead brother all cross paths in Los Angeles. Southern California hides their secrets and opens them up to the tragedy of life and the mistakes made every second of every day. They try so hard to ignore the people around them, but what’s the point of living in a community if society refuses to watch out for each other?

This appears to be the main question Leutwyler and co-writer Gillian Vigman asks. Through the transgressions

Dollhouse 2.10 "The Attic" Recap

Welcome to" The Attic"! Prepare to have your mind frakked…

What could possibly be one of the most complicated episodes of Dollhouse to date in terms of plot twists and technical jargon, "The Attic" delivered… and left me scratching my head. Bad thing? Hell No!!!! Let's get to it!

The Set Up

We pick up right were we left off with Echo being tended to by a female Attic representative, who is injecting tubes and wires into Echo. When the attendant leaves, Echo starts to spasm and flatlines!!!! When the female representative returns with another representative, the two remove the tubes and Saran Wrap from Echo and she awakes and dispatches both of them quickly. She breaks out her room and attacks the first person she sees for info on the whereabouts of Victor and Sierra. The guy tells her that they use real names in the Attic, which for Echo is Caroline Farrell.

TV Recap: ‘Dollhouse: Belonging’

Well, cut me open and splay my innards. This episode was awesome. Written by Joss Whedon’s little brother Jed and his wife Maurissa Tancharoen, this episode Topher develops morals and Sierra kills a client. Also, this episode was directed by Jonathan Frakes (of Star Trek The Next Generation) making it all around awesome.

The last time I recapped Dollhouse, I was pretty harsh saying the show has to give me something worth saving it for. Now I can say that for episodes like this one, its worth saving this show for more of this kind of stuff.

We open on Sierra displaying some of her art on the beach, when Dr. Nolan Kinnard (Vincent Ventresca) comes up to her and asks her out. Flash forward to a gallery showing of Sierra/Priya’s work. Priya wants to leave with Victor who has been imbued with the consciousness of an Italian Art Dealer.

CinemaSpy's Week-End TV Recap (Oct. 24)

Our reviews for this past week are down a couple of shows, thanks primarily to baseball. Fringe was a no-show on account of the former, and Supernatural offered us a repeat of this season's premiere.

That said, we've got some new entries in the mix, which we'll be continuing as well. Blaine Kyllo chimes in with his thoughts on this past week's episodes of House, 30 Rock and Dollhouse (the latter of which returned to the airwaves after a one week absence).

With choices reduced on account of America's favorite pastime, viewers had a second look at shows they might have otherwise missed the first go-round, in their quest for something to watch, and this benefited FlashForward, which earned its best audience since its second week, picking up a 6.2 rating/10 share.

Meanwhile, according to the stats, Fringe, which has been a big ratings loser in its sophomore season, saw an uptick the week ending Oct.

Dollhouse 2.04 "Belonging" Recap

Oh. My. God.

Dollhouse was phenomenal last night. Words cannot describe the mind rush I got while viewing the show and I just want to say to all the naysayers: If you still feel that Dollhouse is not going anywhere story wise, then there is something seriously wrong with you in the department of storytelling.

Sierra’s backstory answered a lot of questions, posed more questions in the process, and almost clearly laid part of the foundation for “Epitaph One”.

The show starts with a disillusioned vision of a bloody Topher repeating the phrase “I was just trying to help her…” a couple of times.

One-Year Prior

Then we flashback to Sierra in her pre-Dollhouse days, where we knew her as Priya, working at a novelty stand taking pictures and selling her art. A guy walks up to the stand and we recognize him, as the guy who Sierra went to confront during Dr.
