Daily Trailer: For a Good Time, Call…
Focus Features has released this quirky little charmer of a trailer for For a Good Time, Call…, a comedy written by Lauren Miller and Katie Anne Naylon. The film stars Miller (Superbad, 50/50) as the responsible Lauren, who is forced by tough times to move in with wild-child Katie, played by Ari Graynor (The Sitter, Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist). Justin Long (Live Free or Die Hard) looks adorable as always as their mutual friend, Jesse. The trailer presents Katie and Lauren as a sort of modern-day odd couple, with Katie dancing around a stripper pole in the living room while the sedate Lauren wonders what she’s gotten herself into. When Lauren learns that Katie is running a phone-sex line out of her bedroom, she offers to help her organize the business in return for a part of the profits.
From the trailer, this film looks hilariously good-humored, with a happy plot that doesn’t take the economic angst too seriously. I’m especially excited to see more of Ari Graynor, who exudes a fun, bouncy energy. Lauren Miller was married last year to Seth Rogen (Pineapple Express, The Green Hornet), whose cameo at the end of the trailer is just perfect.
For a Good Time, Call will have a limited release on August 31st and larger, national U.S. release on September 7th.
