Leaves of Grass trailer

Nov. 16, 2009by: Mike Sampson

Chris Bumbray caught a screening of LEAVES OF GRASS at the Toronto Film Festival and called it "one of the few truly disappointing films" at the 2009 fest. That's a shame because I've always felt like Ed Norton (excuse me EDWARD Norton) was a guy who took himself so seriously, he could benefit from a big, goofy comedy. Sadly LEAVES though just doesn't seem to be very funny.

The trailer for the film is online and it's not doing much to help the film. It's not particularly funny and it's poorly edited and put together. The film is still without a solid distribution plan (theatrical release or straight-to-DVD?) and I doubt this is helping the case at all. Check it out below and let me know what you think.

Extra Tidbit: I do like that Richard Dreyfuss apparently attacks someone with a menorah in the film.

Ebert's review

Yeah- I read Ebert's review too, and he seemed to love it. I dunno though, just didn't really do it for me- although Tim Blake Nelson is really good in it, and Dreyffus is da bomb.

Yeah the trailer seemed slapped together, but the movie doesn't look half bad.

Loved It!

The trailer was awesome and the movie looks hilarious. Ed Norton is going to be amazing in this movie. I don't know why everyone is passing it around like it's no big deal or that it doesn't look like a good movie.

Could be good ...
It was actually one of Roger Ebert's favorite films from the TIFF, so Im confident.
