Too many Charlies
Wait, wait. Isn't that the movie the came out last year, with Robert Downey, Jr. and the kid who starts offering counseling and anti-depressants out of the high school boys' bathroom? Oh right, that was Charlie Bartlett. [video]
Can we all stop naming our movies after the title character whose name is Charlie with an English last name? I can't keep all this straight and don't want to inadvertantly watch a movie by Fred Durst.
Education of Charlie Banks is about a kid growing up in New York in the 80's, then going off to college where he is surrounded by a bunch of rich jerky guys and learns important life lessons (which I learned from the trailer.)
- Adventureland, the Greg Mottola movie coming out next week
- Holy Rollers, about Hasidic Jews running an Ecstasy ring
- Zombieland, which takes place in a world overrun with zombies
- Something called Kill Your Darlings, about Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and William S. Burroughs coming together in New York in the 40's. Eisenberg plays Ginsberg, Chris Evans plays Kerouac, which sounds pretty good. Really--Chris Evans was good in Sunshine!
