Bruce Willis and Rebecca Hall place some bets in the trailer for Lay the Favorite
One would think that with as much as LAY THE FAVORITE has going for it, that it would be good. Apparently amongst the movie critics it's getting panned for mediocrity (Bumbray gave it a 3). Regardless, let's save the judgment for our own personal viewing.
The first trailer for the film has made its way online this evening. The HIGH FIDELITY team of Stephen Frears and D.V. DeVincentis decided to get back together to attempt to make another awesome movie baby. This one is an adaptation of Beth Raymer's memoir. Bruce Willis, Rebecca Hall, Joshua Jackson, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Vince Vaughn all star in this one. It seems okay. I have a weakness for Jackson that I've had for the past thirteen years now so I'm all over this.
Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
"A dramedy centered on a thirtysomething woman who becomes involved with a group of geeky fiftyish men who have found a way to work the sportsbook system in Las Vegas to their advantage."
