The film stars Miller (Superbad, 50/50) as the responsible Lauren, who is forced by tough times to move in with wild-child Katie, played by Ari Graynor (The Sitter, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist). Justin Long (Live Free or Die Hard) looks adorable as always as their mutual friend, Jesse. The trailer presents Katie and Lauren as a sort of modern-day odd couple, with Katie dancing around a stripper pole in the living room while the sedate Lauren wonders what she’s gotten herself into. When Lauren learns that Katie is running a phone-sex line out of her bedroom, she offers to help her organize the business in return for a part of the profits.
From the trailer, this film looks hilariously good-humored, with a happy plot that doesn’t take the economic angst too seriously. I’m especially excited to see more of Ari Graynor, who exudes a fun, bouncy energy. Lauren Miller was married last year to Seth Rogen (Pineapple Express, The Green Hornet), whose cameo at the end of the trailer is just perfect.
For a Good Time, Call will have a limited release on August 31st and larger, national U.S. release on September 7th.
