"Blanchett owns this movie as thoroughly as her character owns her delusions." –The Washington Post. >>
Written, directed by and starring Lake Bell; also starring Fred Melamed, Rob Corddry, Demetri Martin, Michaela Watkins, Ken Marina, Nick Offerman and Tig Notaro.
"Pretty much a perfect movie, chock full of fun, endless laughter, realistic love and that all-important magical movie ingredient: originality." –
