We’ve all been there, right? Had a bad day at work, so you go out to just blow off some steam, but what starts as just some innocent R&R soon turns into too much alcohol, some questionable life choices, and you waking up halfway across town, forced to have to cause mayhem and destruction in Los Angeles in your attempt to get back home, all while wearing a tight yellow dress? Okay, just Darryn and Elizabeth Banks then.
Unlike in my compatriot’s case though, Ms Banks makes this look damn funny as she has to fend off gangbangers, hairy European men and constant accusations of being a, lady of the streets, shall we say.
The outrageous comedy “Walk of Shame” stars Elizabeth Banks (“The Hunger Games,” “Pitch Perfect”) as a resourceful reporter whose one-night stand with a handsome stranger (James Marsden) leaves her stranded the next morning in downtown Los Angeles without a phone, car, ID, or money – and only 8 hours before the most important job interview of her career.
Walk of Shame comes from writer/director Steven Brill, whose work I am generally not the biggest fan of. Yes, he wrote all three Mighty Ducks movies, which is awesome, but he also gave us Little Nicky, Mr. Deeds and Drillbit Taylor, to painfully name a few. I’m hoping though that, boosted by Banks’ natural charm and wit, this is one of his better offerings, and based on that trailer, its looking good.
The comedy also stars James Marsden, Gillian Jacobs, Bill Burr, Liz Carey, Ken Davitian, Willie Garson, Lawrence Gilliard Jr., Oliver Hudson, Alphonso McAuley, Kevin Nealon, Tig Notaro, Ethan Suplee and Sarah Wright, and will blocking your boop-boop on May 2, 2014.
