She's Funny That Way 2014

     Isabella (Izzy) Patterson is being interviewed by Hollywood reporter Judy.  She is an actress and she got her big break when she met theater director Arnold Albertson.  Her first part in a play is about a call girl who gets a big break when she meets a director, not unlike the way Izzy got her start.  Arnold’s wife and his friend Seth also have parts in A Grecian Evening.  Jane Claremont is a therapist and she finds out she is dealing with many of the people involved in this play and their friends.
     This film has the style of Woody Allen with the relationships back and forth and many complications.  There are a lot of misunderstandings, running around, jumping in cabs, breakups and attempted patching up the breakups.  2 1/2* (This movie is so-so)

93 min, Comedy directed by Peter Bogdanovich with Imogen Poots, Owen Wilson, Jennifer Aniston, Illeana Douglas, Kathryn Hahn, Rhys Ifans, Richard Lewis, Cybill Shepherd, Austin Pendleton, George Morfogen, Tovah Feldshuh.

Note:  Imdb 6.2 out of 10, 40% critic 36% audience on Rotten Tomatoes, Roger Ebert 2 ½*, Amazon 3.1* out of 5* with 184 reviews.
Special Note:  Filmed in New York City and Manhattan.  People Magazine reported this film was going into preproduction in the mid-1990’s with the title to be Soup to Nuts with Tatum O’Neal.
