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.

Grade: A-

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?
