Worth Watching - May 8: Charlie Bartlett Trailer

May 8, 2007

Charlie Bartlett

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.

Charlie Bartlett was directed by the long-time comedy film editor Jon Poll and also stars Robert Downey Jr and Hope Davis. It's currently set for a August 3rd release in the US.

I am REALLY looking forward to this

I seems to me from the trailer that this will be a better movie than superbad. While superbad was entertaining, the premise was a little worn and it had just a hair too much "dumb". This movie looks like it has quite a bit more story and wit. Definitely looking forward to it.
