Director: Cheryl Hines Writer(s): Adrienne Shelly Starring: Meg Ryan, Timothy Hutton, Kristin Bell, Justin Long Serious Moonlight begins with Ian (Timothy Hutton) as he travels to a quaint vacation home in the country. Where Ian is going, people leave items for sale alone by the side of the road with the unwavering trust that their customers will leave the proper cash on the table in exchange for the goods; and the inhabitants of the town leave their doors unlocked even when they are not home. (Other than in the movies, do places like this still exist?) Ian purposefully arrives a day earlier than his wife, Louise (Meg Ryan), in order to rendezvous with his youthful mistress Sara (Kristen Bell) for a trip to Paris. Ian plans on being halfway to Paris before Louise arrives – he intends to leave a note behind for Louise to break off their marriage. »

Adrienne Shelly's Serious Moonlight Trailer with Meg Ryan

15 October 2009 6:40 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Magnolia Pictures has debuted the official trailer for Serious Moonlight, the last screenplay written by the late Adrienne Shelly (Sudden Manhattan, Waitress) directed by her friend and actress Cheryl Hines. This comedy stars Meg Ryan, Timothy Hutton, Kristen Bell, and Justin Long, all of whom are playing roles which they don't seem to fit (where was the casting director on this?). I wanted to give this a chance, but sadly, it just looks bad, bad, bad. And I'm guessing that has to do more with Cheryl Hines' directing than it does Adrienne Shelly's script. And also no one likes Meg Ryan anymore and she isn't funny in this at all.
