The Way Way Back Trailer: Hey Steve Carell, Make More Movies Like This, Please!

By Jodi Clager | Trade News | April 12, 2013 | Comments ()


The Way, Way Back is the first directorial effort of Nat Faxon and Jim Rash (The Descendents). You may also know Jim Rash as "Community's" Dean Pelton. He also has a role in the movie, along with his co-director Nat Faxon, who you may know as Ben from "Ben and Kate." They are very good writers. I'm sure they'll make very good directors.

The film follows the shy, 14-year-old Duncan (Liam James) and the friendship he forms with water park manager Owen (Sam Rockwell). Did I make that sound inappropriate? It's not. I mean the two are just friends. Anyway, Toni Collete plays Duncan's mother and Steve Carrell plays her boyfriend.

This is the movie that people like Steve Carell and Sam Rockwell should be making. Good movies, with heart and sweetness and FEELS, and without studio-contrived magic shows and schticky accents. Everyone in Hollywood. Stop. Pay attention. More like this, please.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
