Worth Watching - May 8: Charlie Bartlett Trailer
by Alex Billington
May 8, 2007
Although I know this won't mean much, the production company Sidney Kimmel Entertainment is really whipping out some damn good (comedic) films this year. They produced my favorite comedy of 2007, Death at a Funeral, as well as a hopeful part-drama sleeper hit with Don Cheadle, Talk to Me, and they've also got one I haven't seen yet called Charlie Bartlett with a new trailer that just came out. It feels a bit like a mix between Running with Scissors from last year and any high school teen dramedy you can think of, but with a little more maturity. Just check it out, it stars Anton Yelchin in the lead as Charlie Bartlett, the same actor who played the kidnapped kid in Alpha Dog. It really looks like it could be another sleeper hit of this summer, too.
The best part is this will be rated R, and won't be a too dumbed down high school comedy. I think it's got some tough competition with Superbad, but I already can tell this will be the better movie.
