Excellent comedy. Has an old fashioned feel to it and reminiscent of Woody Allen films (by krkemp)
I loved this movie. It had definitely had a Woody Allen feel to it. The opening with the music of the 1930's... the neurotic characters getting entangled in ever more complex situations leading to many laughs... Others have compared the movie to "screwball comedies of old". Either way, it really works. A great cast of actors doing excellent comedy. Even Jennifer Aniston made me laugh quite a few times! Imogen Poots was amazing! Perfect comedy timing and quirkiness. Wonderful. Owen Wilson was sort of reprising his "Midnight in Paris" character a bit but he was great <more>
too! I loved it from beginning to end. It's a lighthearted movie with lots of laughs that will leave you feeling good. Highly recommended.
To everyone who doesn't rate it ten, are you Nuts? (by tomasbily)
What you can expect more from a film, about a theatre play?!? Not just, that everyone is mentioning how it resembles great ideas of Woody, that I was expecting him to pass by in the crowd and he is definitely somewhere there , not just, that is "fairytalie", as it gets yes, that one, as good , not just that it's good as well remake, or inspiration based as crazy mad Birdman, not just, that the casting is brilliant and very articulate, not just the plot is one galloping horse ride from the very first to the VERY LAST moment, but there is a catch at the very end at last! So to <more>
everyone, who is bi...moaning about anything in this OPUS, squirrel you! Peace!Homage á this film
I'm 60 live in a retirement/nursing home with congestive heart failure caused by a heart attack I had in 2009 while working in the Middle East for ten years. I've had an interesting life, but I'm not very smart and not very sophisticated. So I liked this movie a lot. It resembles parts of my own life and parts of my friends lives minus the glamor and stuff. When I saw the movie "Saint Vincent" I wanted to sue someone for stealing my life, I get to see more movies now that I'm retired and disabled. So many of you seem so unhappy and so cynical now that I've had <more>
time to slow down after 33 years of being busy and see what you all are up to. I liked and loved this movie, it reminds me of real life. I can just imagine the reaction of some of you out there to that statement, you shoulda got a life before it killed your dreams and your heart. Some people actually do have lives that come close to this movie, "She's Funny That Way" ---shocking isn't it. All some of us have is what we lived, dreamed and are...
Very funny old-style screwball comedy (by [email protected])
I really don't understand the negative reviews and the relatively low overall rating. Last Monday three of my friends and me watched this movie in a preview in Munich. We were enjoying it a lot. This is an old style screwball comedy which isn't done very often any more. The whole audience was laughing throughout the movie. The cast was great - and especially Jennifer Anniston was very good in a supporting role. Someone pointed out the strange accent of Imogen Poots character. And yes, this bothered me a little bit; I thought she wanted to play a Russian prostitute. Anyway, great movie <more>
with great dialogue for fans of screwball comedies.
Some people just want to type and hear themselves. It's a bit clicheezy, but they knew it. Brilliant in my mind. I haven't watched many movies lately that I would watch twice. This is a movie I will watch more than twice. Excellent writing and acting all around. Loved it. I think the psychology in this and stereo types all hit the mark. I have no idea how these writers can put on paper our daily lives and thoughts and then through humor on top. Woody Allen Screwball, yes but it is still original for our day. I would not change anything. People think at .02 before they interrupt or <more>
have a self conscious opinion. This folks new that.
Woody Allen with a bit of Blake Edwards thrown in (by Fleurus)
If you had no clue about who the director was, you would think it's an Allen movie right from the start. You even have some of the actors we've seen in his films, lately. Even the ending reminded me of some of Woody's. Add to that a bit of Blake Edwards Victor/Victoria period and you have an enjoyable comedy with several stories among the main storyline. Imogen Poots is incredible as a call girl with brains and heart. She has an accent I couldn't put my finger on I thought she came from eastern Europe but have read since that it's a Brooklyn one. Owen Wilson is as you <more>
expect, funny and charming. In fact all the cast is hilarious : Watch for Jennifer Aniston's hysterical act as a therapist from hell. All in all a delightful film with a great cast.
A pleasantly manic, adult comedy (by StevePulaski)
Peter Bogdanovich's She's Funny That Way is exactly the kind of film that isn't made any more; a manic, silly comedy helmed by an ensemble cast made for adults. The film adheres to the wry comedic style of Woody Allen, who rigorously churned out films like these in the 1970's and 1980's, and a style that Allen continues to play with in the modern day. With a breezy eighty minute runtime and a comedic cast that, for once, looks like they're actually having a great time with one another, this is a film that can skate by and leave you with a goofy grin on your face before <more>
cynicism even has time summon.The film revolves around a hooker named Isabella Beatty Imogen Poots , who became a Broadway thespian following a gracious break from Arnold Albertson Owen Wilson , a Broadway director who frequents escorts despite being married to Delta Kathryn Hahn , a Broadway star herself. Arnold is filthy rich, for that matter, and upon paying escorts for their services, he'll also gift them with $30,000 to get their life moving in the right direction, all under Delta's nose. Meanwhile, a playwright named Joshua Will Forte begins to fall in love with Isabella, despite dating Jane Claremont Jennifer Aniston , a bitter and hot-tempered therapist. Finally, there's also Seth Rhys Ifans , an actor of Arnold's who also frequents escort services whilst trying to balance his exploding level of popularity.This conglomeration of characters make She's Funny That Way a film that consistently moves and never slows down. The persistent weaving and fluid profiling of each and every character in the film is what largely makes the film such a good time. While the characters may often be contemptible, the situational humor mimics the sort of awkwardness and indecisive etiquette occurrences examined in your average episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm, although with decidedly more theatricalities and far-fetched circumstances.The cast here feels right at home. We have low-key performers that go under the radar far too often Poots, Ifans, and Forte and we have seasoned veterans trying their hand at the personalities they accentuate the best Aniston and Wilson . Moreover, though, everyone feels like they're enjoying themselves. This isn't a film to take very seriously, nor is it a film that gets hung up on vulgarities and stupidity. It's the rare adult comedy with the energy of a kids film but the brazen personality that can accompany any night filled with wine, good friends - even a date - and a fulfilling dinner.One of the biggest problems I've seen with American cinema is, despite R-rated comedies, few comedies are really designed for adults. Paradoxically, R-rated films like Get Hard and The Hangover sequels have jokes that would make teenagers laugh out loud, but many adults turn the other cheek, though they are the audience that will be allowed in the film at the local multiplex. She's Funny That Way is a film that bears a crass sense but in a way that isn't over-the-top or in love with the idea of making the viewer uncomfortable based on situations involving bodily fluids or intercourse. Co-writer along with Louis Stratten Bogdanovich works to make the film a more humble comedy, where the awkward situations are made funny by the characters and not the inanity of the situations themselves.This is a smartly written film, one that really is elevated by the performers, though they, for once, aren't ostensibly trying to mask the low-level quality of the writing. She's Funny That Way packs a lot of manic energy in its eighty minutes, including great displays of character acting and plenty of nods to film lovers. Nuts to the squirrels indeed.Starring: Owen Wilson, Imogen Poots, Will Forte, Jennifer Aniston, Kathryn Hahn, and Rhys Ifans. Directed by: Peter Bogdanovich.
best time I've had at the movies in a while (by quang-64648)
Last night I attended a screening of Peter Bogdanovich's She's Funny that Way and I have to say it was probably one of the most enjoyable films I have seen for quite some time. Its the kind of film that makes you fall in love with film and actors and lets you understand what I great script and well seasoned director can bring to you. I really haven't laughed out loud so much during a movie in ages. Watching the film you can't help but have the comedies of Ernst Lubitsch and Billy Wilder come to mind and maybe in more contemporary fashion Woody Allen I really only mention it <more>
because thats who most of the people around me compared it to, if anything I think I found this much more enjoyable than a lot of the film's Woody has put out in recent year's, sorry Woody .The cast in this film was impeccable, it was real fun to see all the familiar faces from many different eras of film but it was Imogen Poots' truly inspired performance that really brought and incredible energy to the film. I unfortunately was not aware of her prior to this film, but by the end of it I can now say I am an advocate, she was a real vision in this film and I'd love to see her in more roles like this. These are the kinda of rare films that I really think are for people that love movies and make you fall in love with the movies, and I'm happy that I saw it and its amazing to see what a director like Bogdanovich still has inside of him and its a shame that we haven't seen more modern works from him because this film proves that he can still create works that far exceed the films produced by other contemporary directors, I can't even think of a film within the last 13 years since the last Bogdanovich film that really rivals this. This film is a quiet one set up in a screwball comedy kinda of fashion, I'm not going to go into the details, you can read that synopsis else where, but what I am going to say is that this film is pure escapist enjoyment. Its small, dialogue driven and does exactly what films at their core are meant to do and entertain and once you blink its over, and what you walk away from this film with is the memory of seeing something light hearted and fun and the feeling that you saw something special that will stick with you in the back of your mind for some time.My only gripe that I have has nothing to do with this film but with the reviews and the rumored distribution issues with this film, I don't really know how a film like this did not receive more positive reviews and its unfortunate because due to that the film isn't going to get the release it really deserves, because this picture really needs to be seen in the theater with an audience, it really enhances the magic you feel when watching it. I can really go on and on about my love for this film, All I can really say is that I really hope that this film finds its audience because its a shame that it hasn't already because its one of those films that immerses you so deep that by the end of it you really felt like you've seen something really special.
The movie, the cast and the lovely Imogen Poots... They're all funny that way (by afallguns)
The film feels like those old time french or Woody Allen comedy of errors. The hands of Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach as executive producers can be noticed, witch doesn't steal any of the writer and director Peter Bogdanovich's credits. The whole movie is really funny, and Imogen Poots leads it the right way and George Morfogen's character, perfectly played, emphasizes that old time comedy taste. Needless to say that the cast worked brilliantly. All the characters were well written, so there is half way through, but I can't see any miscasting in this movie, not even for the <more>
secondary parts. Something you don't see everyday in the movies. Simple and well crafted... Good old time laughs... Nowadays, it feels like the rule is to overthink in comedy... And "She's Funny That Way" skip that rule.
