Jenna Fischer loses Chris O'Donnell quick in the trailer for A Little Help

05.23.2011

Usually when I want my Jenna Fischer fix, I just watch THE OFFICE. When Fischer does a feature, she generally does not star, aside from the indie film LOLLILOVE.

In A LITTLE HELP, Fischer gets to take the lead as a mother who has recently been widowed. Instead of telling everyone the truth about how his father (Chris O'Donnell) died, Dennis (Daniel Yelsky) says he was killed during 9/11 because "it's cooler". The trailer is charming in my opinion. Fischer really needed a film and character like this to help her breakout. Keep your eyes peeled for Rob Benedict, the guy from WAITING who couldn't pee in a public restroom.

"Set in suburban Long Island in the post-9/11 summer of 2002, A LITTLE HELP examines a period of chaotic and rather bizarre upheaval in the life of dental hygienist Laura Pehlke (Jenna Fischer). It is the story – funny, touching, sad, and real – of an ordinary person, engulfed by ordinary events, making an extraordinary emotional journey."

Extra Tidbit: "Broken wings mend in time. One day Robin will fly again. I promise."

Looks Like Shit

This was a completely god awful trailer. Everything felt forced and awkward, and not in a 'quirky' (as I imagine that's what they were aimin for) way. Just mean, and dumb.

I love Fischer, and do hope the movie is better than this trailer makes it seem, but I am not holding my breath.

Who else came here thinking there'd be a hot picture of Jenna Fischer, only to be disappointed. I cared nothing for seeing the trailer, only wanting the goods. Thumbs up if you're let down.

I think this looks pretty good! I'm happy to see Jenna Fischer as a primary lead. And Chris O'Donnell is in it for about 15 minutes. One thing, can we please stop using "hand written" fonts to give films and "independent appeal"? kthnxbai

Can't Wait

The 9/11 stuff feels awkward but at least the film makers are taking a risk and considering the source (a 10 year old kid) it actually seems relatively innocent. That aside, Jenna Fischer looks AWESOME. It looks like the perfect script to tap into her comedic sensibilities and give her a real chance to grab a film by the horns and run with it.

the 9/11 bit...

feels very unneeded.. and will potentially offend many people. "9/11 is cooler!!" (horrible line)...

9/11 shit aside, the movie does seem charming.
