Olivia Munn gets her first starring role in Broken Lizard flick

Jun. 7, 2011by: Mike Sampson

For as many people there are who love Olivia Munn, there are just as many people who really don't like Olivia Munn. But like her or love her, she's just not going away. After her horrible NBC sitcom, "Perfect Couples," was mercifully cancelled after one season, she's just signed on for her first lead role in a film.

Munn will co-star with Paul Schneider (once of the great "Parks and Recreation") in THE BABY MAKER from the Broken Lizard comedy troupe. The two will star as a couple who have difficulty conceiving a child and concoct a scheme to rob a sperm bank.

Jay Chandrasekhar will direct the film and will star along with Lizard members Steve Lemme, Paul Soter, Erik Stolhanske and Kevin Heffernan. The film will be Munn's third teaming with the BROKEN LIZARD crew after a brief appearance in THE SLAMMIN SALMON and the upcoming FREELOADERS, which has yet to be released.

The indie comedy will begin filming later this summer after Munn wraps work on the HBO pilot from Aaron Sorkin (yes, she's getting yet another chance at a TV series).

So let me get this straight...

Parks and Recreation is great and Perfect Couples was crap? Yeah... I disagree completely. What's up with all the Broken Lizard hate? Slammin Salmon wasn't great but it was still pretty damn funny.

This girl has the sexiest pooper I swear. I'd watch her blow bubbles all day.

if there were ever a recipe for mediocrity, it's the combination of Olivia Munn and Broken Lizard.

She just needs to hang it up. No talent just getting by on her looks, like Jenny McCarthy with a more vapid attitude

The cast and plot make this seem like the worst kind of DTV type of comedy. Oh, its by Broken Lizard. That makes sense, there's a reason their movies don't get theatrical releases.

For me the last straw was when she got implants.

Alex, that's the sort of thinking that bothers me. She did not need them. She trashed herself by getting them.

I'm pretty sure she just grew mom boobs much like Ali Larter. I'll do some exhaustive research and get back to you on that.

Olivia Munn is hilarious. I really don't understand the hater-contingent on this one. Yeah, beautiful women with great comedic timing . . . that blows.

Also, what sucked about Perfect Couples? All the witty dialogue, the funny characters, the fantastic deliveries? Maybe more reporting and less editorializing, eh? That would be swell.

They probably shouldn't scrape the barrels, since it needs to be kept below freezing to keep from spoiling, so I'm sure they're no-....wait...

Perfect Couples

was one of the few shows I went out of my way to watch. She wasn't fantastic in it, but the show itself was damned funny.

I love Olivia Munn but that sounds like a horrible idea for a movie. It doesn't sound like something I would want to see for 1 hour and 45 minutes. But since she's in it, I'll make an attempt to watch it.

Can't say that I'm familiar with her or any of her work, but I do like Broken Lizard's movies. My favorite is easily Club Dread, then Beerfest and The Slammon Salmon. So I'll be looking forward to it.

She's hot...

That's all I need. I know she can't act and I don't care.

Want to like her. Really do. But keeps serving up too many inauthentic moments for me to cross that threshold. I see her interviewed or doing a Daily Show bit and find myself wise to her act. But whatever, humans are humans.
