|Away We Go
John Krasinski (The Office), his indie-flick facial hair and Maya Rudolph (Saturday Night Live) star in the tale of a pregnant couple searching the U.S. for the perfect place to raise a child. Hilarity, tears and no stops in Provo ensue.
In other couples-traveling-the-country news, Chad (Steven Weber) and Scarlet (Jamie Brown) have a car wreck by a farmhouse and then get tortured by another couple (William Lee Scott, Kelly Hu). Lesson: Never travel.
A traveling mother and daughter (here we go again) stop for gas in Flesh, Texas (pop. 666, natch), and the daughter is kidnapped by an inbred family on the outskirts of town. Does the father resemble a bearded Jim from The Office?
|The Girlfriend Experience
A Manhattan prostitute (porn starlette Sasha Grey) also pretends to be an attentive “girlfriend” for a fee. Isn’t the convenient part of hiring hookers the fact that they’ll just get the hell out after business is transacted?
More cautionary tales of travel: An aimless drifter (Steve Zahn) stalks a career woman (Jennifer Aniston) and eventually wins her heart. Not based on a true story, because we all know Jennifer Aniston will die alone.
