It all starts out with such promise. Steven Brill’s latest comedy, ‘Walk of Shame,’ introduces us to Meghan Miles (Elizabeth Banks), polished television news anchor, by way of a series of dramatized versions of famous newscast flubs that highlight exactly what Meghan is not – she’s not unprepared, she’s not unprofessional, and she’s not without some serious skills.
A few days ago, I was offered an interview with Gillian Jacobs -- who is promoting her new film, the Elizabeth Banks comedy, 'Walk of Shame.' "Sure," I said, because I've always enjoyed Jacobs' work on 'Community.' Then I asked, When can I see the movie?” At that time, there weren’t any screenings scheduled, and unfortunately, there wasn't enough time to set up a new one, so I went into this interview not knowing much more than what was available in the trailer. So, not much, unfortunately.
I debated between faking my way though, or just being honest. I went with the honest approach. So, we tried our best -- but, in reality, we were just two strangers on the phone with not that much to talk about. Sure, we tried to engage in small talk -- we really did -- the weather was even brought up at one point, which is not the best sign that you're doing a good job at keeping another person's attention. I brought up 'Community,' in passing. And, you know what, there were were a couple of interesting moments -- we even shared a couple of laughs! Then, we said our goodbyes, hung up the phone, and went on with our lives. A life, in which for me, still exists without seeing 'Walk of Shame.' Someday, I will see 'Walk of Shame' and someday all of this will make sense.
After offering ace support in comedies like 'Wet Hot American Summer' and 'The 40-Year-Old Virgin,' and wearing the weirdest outfits in 'The Hunger Games' films, it's great to see Elizabeth Banks get a movie of her own. That film is 'Walk of Shame,' and now there's a trailer.
You might remember this bubbly actress from her role in 'The House Bunny' opposite Anna Farris or her stint as Rob Lowe's on-screen girlfriend in 'Parks and Recreation,' but in the upcoming '21 & Over,' Sarah Wright essentially had to become one of the guys.
