First Trailer for Peter Bogdanovich’s Comedy SHE’S FUNNY THAT WAY

Peter Bogdanovich's Comedy

The screwball comedy She’s Funny That Way marks Peter Bogdanovich’s first narrative feature since 2001’s The Cat’s Meow. Legendary director brings us the star-studded farce, starring Owen Wilson, Imogen Poots, Jennifer Aniston, Will Forte, Kathryn Hahn, Lucy Punch, Debi Mazar, Rhys Ifans, Quentin Tarantino, Cybill Shepherd, Colleen Camp and Tatum O’Neal.

Initially titled Squirrels to the Nuts–a reference to Ernst Lubitsch’s last completed film Cluny Brown–this enthusiastic but low-fizz romantic farce opens in theaters April 10th.

She’s Funny That Way revolves around married Broadway director Arnold (Owen Wilson) who falls for a prostitute-turned-actress named Izzy (Imogen Poots) and tries to help advance her career. Along for the ride is Jennifer Aniston as Izzy’s therapist Jane, Will Forte as Jane’s husband and Kathryn Hahn as Arnold’s wife.

I like Bogdanovich but this one looks iffy. The jokes seem obvious and stale.
