British director Julian Farino brings us The Oranges, a unconventional romantic comedy starring Hugh Laurie as a divorced man who starts an affair with his best friend's (Oliver Platt) considerably younger daughter, Leighton Meester. Fireworks and comedy ensue. The film also features Catherine Keener, Allison Janney, Adam Brody, and Alia Shawkat.

It looks charming.

    Have to pop out from lurking for this one.
    Laurie's character isn't divorced in the movie; the drama is the fact that the two families have been very close neighbours for years, Laurie as the father/husband of one, Meester as the daughter of the other.
    I saw this at TIFF premiere almost a year ago now and it was a riot. Can't wait to catch it again (Janney is the best, as usual)

    Raccoon poop worms in the bajingo.

  • dsbs42

    There are a lot of people I like a great deal in this movie. Hmm.

  • Anna von Beav

    I'm amused that Hugh Laurie keeps winding up in Jersey.

  • JohnnyL53

    How much different will this be than "Blame it on Rio"?

  • BiblioGlow

    Allison Janney! I'm in.

  • tracey

    great headline

  • John W

    It's always the older man and the young hottie. I love you Hollywood. Don't you go changing.

    The last thing I want to see is a movie about Rosanne Barr having an affair with Channing Tatum.

  • ,

    Well, I keep trying to get them to make a movie about the summer job I had where I banged my married boss who was more than twice my age (I was 18), but it keeps getting sent to rewrite ...

    She was considerable hotter than Roseanne, I'm proud to say.

  • competitivenonfiction

    Rosanne Barr and Charming Potato? I would watch the shit out of that movie.

  • Spaztastic

    Im suprised no one remembers the episode of House that she was on. She inhaled some spores during an earthquake and was repeatedly trying to seduce him because of it.

  • denesteak

    i remember! She had blond hair in that episode!!! Also, it was in the good old days of the first season, i believe.

  • Sorry about the missing trailer, kids. Technical glitch. All betters now.

  • pajiba

    Wait? You wanted the trailer embed, too? You people are SO GREEDY.

  • seth

    By trailer you mean picture?

  • Matt Brown

    I see no trailer and just a header image.

  • space_oddity

    Yes, where's the trailer?

  • KatSings

    Me too

  • hapl0

    Ahh, another movie about gross hookups. And I thought the JLaw and Emu movie was bad.

  • jmd

    Sigh... how many times must we tell you - it's never lupus!

  • thaneofmemphis

    Maybe it's Peter Lupus?

  • BWeaves

    I feel like I've just seen all the good parts. Plus, I can never get used to Hugh Laurie with an American accent. It's just wrong.

    So, Oliver Platt has the daughter who looks like Hugh Laurie, and Hugh Laurie has the daughter who looks like Oliver Platt? Or did I mix something up?

  • Fredo

    I'm guessing she's suffering from lupus.

  • Miss Laaw-yuhr

    Or sarcoidosis. My former roommates and I used to have a running joke that if one person said they felt sick, someone else was obligated to say "it's probably either lupus or sarcoidosis."

  • ,

    It's all funny until you know someone with sarcoidosis.

    Like me. Stage 1 here.

    Really, I do, but that doesn't mean I'm not just fuckin' with ya.

  • Miss Laaw-yuhr

    My grandmother had Lupus my mom had cancer and I have an auto immune disease. Taking a shot at some lazy writing on "House" does not an insensitive person make.

  • ,

    You must have missed the "I'm ... just fuckin' with ya" part.

  • Miss Laaw-yuhr

    I saw that, but I wanted it to be generally clear that we weren't a group of douchebags who get our jollies making fun of illnesses. We save that for rape jokes.

  • Ain't gonna find no lupus down there, House! Amirite?!
    ...I'm bluffing, I've never watched the show.

  • sal paradise

    I read the script when it was on the Black List a few years back. It was fantastic, raunchy, and unsentimental and I hope they haven't watered it down too much.

  • god I hope not.

  • cindy_lightballoon

    I'd watch it just for the cast alone.

  • Three_nineteen

    I hope he finds the tick.
