A brand new trailer has been released for Clarius Entertainment and Castle Rock Entertainment's romantic comedy And So It Goes (2014). Directed by Rob Reiner, And So It Goes stars Diane Keaton, Michael Douglas, Frankie Valli, Barbara Vincent, and Sterling Jerins. The film is set to open in theaters across the United States on July 11th.
Synopsis: There are a million reasons not to like realtor Oren Little (Michael Douglas), and that's just the way he likes it. Willfully obnoxious to anyone who might cross his path, he wants nothing more than to sell one last house and retire in peace and quiet -- until his estranged son suddenly drops off a granddaughter (Sterling Jerins) he never knew existed and turns his life upside-down. Clueless about how to care for a sweet, abandoned nine-year-old, he pawns her off on his determined and lovable neighbor Leah (Diane Keaton) and tries to resume his life uninterrupted. But little by little, Oren stubbornly learns to open his heart -- to his family, to Leah, and to life itself - in this uplifting comedy from acclaimed director Rob Reiner.
There appear to be some extra guests at the LA branch of the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. And, has anyone noticed that Michael Douglas has, since his brush with cancer from too much oral sex with Catherine Zeta-Jones, started to both look like, act like, and talk like that great old character actor William Hickey (Prizzi's Honor, Sea of Love, etc)?
I agree that the trailer isn't very enticing. I love this type of movie too -- a Reiner (Ephron, Nance Meyers) flick with older actors aimed at adults. Repete's list is a good example. I love those movies.
So many movies now are made for kids (animated), geeks (comics), 17-yr-olds ("Fast/Furious"), etc... There's nothing wrong with most of those movies. In fact, many of them are good. But I wish there were more good action movies not based on comics (Liam Neeson type flicks, "Die Hard," etc...) AND more of these types.
Reiner is usually a good helmer. We'll see what becomes of it, but this doesn't look good.
