Worth Watching - March 1: Aaron Eckhart in Meet Bill
Before Aaron Eckhart becomes Harvey Dent, before Jessica Alba becomes Nancy Callahan (again), and even before Elizabeth Banks becomes Miri, there is Bill. Yep, this is the comedy that no one knows about. Meet Bill stars Aaron Eckhart as Bill, a guy whose "life isn't going according to plan." I remember seeing this in the Toronto Film Festival line-up last year, but never ended up making it to a screening. Now the indie company First Look Pictures is finally putting it out in April and it seems like a middle-of-the-line comedy that could go either way. This is another classic case of a movie with lots of good actors that's being forgotten, so don't miss it!
Question: Which one do you like more - Jessica Alba or Elizabeth Banks? And does anyone think this has an Office Space feeling to it?
Watch the trailer for Meet Bill:
Meet Bill is co-directed by husband / producer Bernie Goldmann and wife / first-time filmmaker Melisa Wallack with a screenplay by Wallack as well. The film premiered last year the Toronto Film Festival to quite negative reviews, being called "basically entertaining yet entirely forgettable." Meet Bill arrives in limited theaters on April 4th.
