I'm in the Middle of a RAGING Period

You folks remember Waitress, Adrienne Shelly's wonderful, magical, heart-flipping ode to pie and female independence? If not, you probably weren't a reader of this site back in 2007, as it was a film -- like (500) Days of Summer -- that we (and by "we," I mean "I") shoved down your throat for a couple of months. Of course, Adrienne Shelly had been murdered by the time Waitress was released, which also added a certain amount of melancholy to the magical realism.

Turns out, Adrienne Shelly had another script written. Cheryl Hines -- a close friend and one of the cast members of Waitress -- took directing duties. Judging from the trailer (below), it doesn't have the jangly fluttery goodness of Waitress; in fact, it looks more like the sort of movie that Meg Ryan has made late in her career. Not coincidentally, I suppose, she stars in Serious Moonlight as a jilted wife who straps her husband (Timothy Hutton) to a chair with duct tape after he confesses that he's leaving her for a younger woman (Kristen Bell). (And no offense: But Bell > Ryan). She insists on keeping him there until he falls back in love with her. Justin Long also appears, as a burglar who takes advantage of the fact that Hutton is strapped to a chair to rob the house.

Kind of a hinky premise, I suppose. And to be honest, the trailer doesn't look that great. But, it's Adrienne Shelly, so I'm hoping there's at least a few witticisms in the movie to make it worth the effort of watching.

I'll let y'all make the Meg Ryan blowfish cracks.
