Playing It Cool
It's been a great year for fresh, fun romantic comedies. I noted a few in my Tribeca Film Festival post (that aren't available yet) but here's one you can see right now on VOD and in limited release in theaters. And while I wouldn't say any of these reinvent the genre, they are still terrific, smooth, enjoyable watches with a lot of great talent. This one features Chris Evans and Michelle Monaghan in the lead, and a slew of familiar faces in support (including Topher Grace, Aubrey Plaza, and Luke Wilson). See it. It'll put you in a good mood.
Playing it Cool is now available on Video on Demand and will be in limited release in theaters beginning Friday.
Who is this movie for? It's comfort food for those just looking to feel good. It's hardly groundbreaking, but is it wrong to say I enjoyed it more than Evans' other small film in theaters now? Perhaps you've heard of it. The Avengers: Age of Ultron?
