Quotes

Arnold Albertson: Nobody can tell you where your place is, where is my place? Where is anybody's place? You wanna know where it is? Wherever you're happy, that's where your place is. And you're the best judge of that. In central park for instance some people like to feed the nuts to the squirrels but if it makes someone happy to feed squirrels to the nuts, who am I to say nuts to the squirrels?

The movie, the cast and the lovely Imogen Poots... They're all funny that way
8 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

The film feels like those old time french or Woody Allen comedy of errors. The hands of Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach as executive producers can be noticed, witch doesn't steal any of the writer and director Peter Bogdanovich's credits. The whole movie is really funny, and Imogen Poots leads it the right way and George Morfogen's character, perfectly played, emphasizes that old time comedy taste. Needless to say that the cast worked brilliantly. All the characters were well written, so there is half way through, but I can't see any miscasting in this movie, not even for the secondary parts. Something you don't see everyday in the movies. Simple and well crafted... Good old time laughs... Nowadays, it feels like the rule is to overthink in comedy... And "She's Funny That Way" skip that rule.
