Guy Pearce and Cobie Smulders Attempt to Resurrect the Romantic Comedy in First RESULTS Image

by     Posted 92 days ago


I’ve been lamenting the death of the romantic comedy for some time now.  Whatever your thoughts on the genre as a whole, there’s something to be said for having that kind of variety in the moviegoing marketplace.  Aside from bright spots like the criminally underseen What IfRuby Sparks, and I Give It a Year, genuinely good romantic comedies are few and far between.  Which is why I’m cautiously optimistic about the “unconventional romantic comedy” Results, starring Guy Pearce and Cobie Smulders.  The first image from the film was released today, and it reveals Pearce and Smulders as two mismatched personal trainers who begin to fall for each other thanks to the actions of a newly wealthy client (Kevin Corrigan).  I like Pearce and Smulders a lot, so here’s hoping their comedic chemistry is on point when the film hits theaters next year.

Take a look at the first Results image after the jump.  Directed by Andrew Bujalski (Computer Chess), the film also stars Giovanni Ribisi, Anthony Michael Hall, Brooklyn Decker, and Constance Zimmer.

Sundance 2013: COMPUTER CHESS Review

by     Posted 1 year, 333 days ago


There’s humor and insight to be found in a group of early-1980s computer nerds going to a convention to see whose computer is the best chess player.  Computer Chess has this opportunity, but writer-director Andrew Bujalski is so woefully inept that his movie veers between sleep-inducing and excruciatingly awkward.  Bujalski has the tools to make his movie interesting, and he misses almost every chance to bring life into his mess of a picture.  His scattershot style never hits the mark, the stilted performances create even more distance from the audience, and resulting experience is like spending time with a dull and graceless human being for 90 minutes.
