Elizabeth Banks is fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed just about every part she’s played since stepping into the spotlight. So, my natural instinct is to support this film and its concept. The trailer, however, doesn’t really do it the strong plot justice.
Trailers seem to be everything nowadays so it hurts a little when you see a bad trailer for what could very well be a great film. Director Steven Brill’s Walk of Shame looks like a lot of fun as we follow a news anchor though a one-off, one-night-stand that goes awry the following morning when she’s forced to make her way home without her purse or a car.
The film also stars James Marsden, Gillian Jacobs, Sarah Wright, Kevin Nealon and the trailer even has a cameo from the great Bill Burr. I would try to look past the trailer’s odd pacing. Maybe a red-band trailer would help quell our concerns?
Walk of Shame opens April 25th.
After losing an audition for her dream job, an aspiring Los Angeles TV news anchor goes out for an uncharacteristic night of partying. She awakes in a stranger’s bed to a phone message from her agent telling her the job is hers, if she can make it across town by 5 pm. Stranded in an unknown area without money, a phone, and a car, she embarks on a series of misadventures as she races to the most important job interview of her life.
