Trust the Man Looks Like a Charming Movie

I recently saw the trailer for Trust the Man (remarkably, no official website), a slightly-indy romantic comedy with a promising cast: David Duchovny, Julianne Moore, Billy Crudup, Maggie Gyllenhaal plus the hilarious Gary Shandling (and, unfortunately, Eva Mendes). Nothing extraordinary, certainly, but a fun-looking date movie whose trailer feels a bit like Your Friends and Neighbours.

This guy saw the film at the Toronto Film Festival and gives it two and half out of four stars, calling it “cute but thoroughly underwhelming”.

And speaking of reviews, check out this hilarious book blurb mashup on Macaulay Culkin’s first novel. That’s quite an extrapolation.

Yes, I just said “Macaulay Culkin’s first novel”. If there is a God, I’ll never have to say “Macaulay Culkin’s follow-up novel”.
