Synopsis: The reserved Lauren (Lauren Anne Miller) and the irrepressible Katie (Ari Graynor) are polar opposites… and past enemies. But when both come up short on the funds needed to afford their dream New York City apartment a mutual friend (Justin Long) re-introduces them and they reluctantly agree to room together. These apartment-mates have nothing in common – until Lauren discovers that Katie is working as a phone-sex operator, and recognizes a good business opportunity. But as their business partnership takes off, their newfound friendship finds unexpected challenges that may leave them both, as they say, hanging on the telephone.
Release Date: August 31, 2012 (limited)
Steve’s Thoughts: There’s a lot to like about this trailer – Justin Long, Ari Graynor, DIY phone sex operation from your shared apt, Seth Rogen, strong female comedy moments. Looks like the right amount of raunch, mixed with an interesting story line. Only concern is if the chemistry between the roommates is there? Not a fan of CBS’s 2 Broke Girls, but being able to take a similar story past network sensors might make this one a hit.
