For a Good Time Call poster

For a Good Time, Call…is a raunchy 2012 comedy written by and starring Lauren Miller. The only thing that I knew going in was that it concerns phone sex. Lauren Miller is Seth Rogen’s wife. This was my first experience watching a movie that I knew she was in. So far she doesn’t have a long filmography, which is scattered with small roles in Rogen’s films.

Lauren Miller in For a Good Time Call

Yes, it’s taken me a while to check out this fun film. It’s theatrical release was limited so many didn’t have the option of checking it out until the flick’s DVD release earlier this year. Even then I wasn’t so sure about checking it out due to the lack of advertising and familiarity with the main actresses. However I finally got around to it and I’m glad that I did. Aside from Miller, the film costars the bubbly blonde Ari Graynor. You may know her as the chick that Jonah Hill’s character wasn’t dating but wanted to be in The Sitter. BTW-Her wardrobe in this is awesome. She can totally rock a jumpsuit. The supporting cast is pretty great. It includes Justin Long, Nia Vardalos and Mimi Rogers. Seth Rogen, Ken Marino and Kevin Smith even show up in cameo roles. Yes, they are phone sex customers!

Seth Rogen in For A Good Time Call

You will probably be wondering the same thing that I was when I heard that it is about phone sex, why phone sex in this day and age? People are more likely to check out say a webcam site to get their rocks off. However the reasoning seems to be that the girl has been doing it for years so I guess the audience can infer that it was more popular then. It’s also based on Miller and co-writer Katie Anne Naylon’s real experiences.

This is the type of movie that is brash and over the top but also sweet. It’s a bit reminiscent of a Judd Apatow picture in that way. Not every joke works. I don’t really care for urine jokes but maybe they felt they were the chick version of fart jokes.

The flick is about two girls who met briefly in college through their gay bestie and took an instant disdain towards one another. Now both need roommates so he gets them to meet and agree to the arrangement. One starts out high strung while the other is wild. Yes, she has a stripper pole for sexercising! Eventually they build both a business and a friendship.

Ari Graynor, Justin Long and Lauren Miller in For a Good Time Call

All in all I’d say check it out. I’m not sure how it will stand up to repeated viewings but it’s worth at least one.

“I’m afraid of being afraid”

“Is that a shoudvitation or an invitation?”

Take This Waltz has definitely been lauded as many things, most of these adjectives sound positive and sexy: sultry, hot, steamy. You rarely see adultery or cheating in the headline. It may be a sign of our times or just that most reviewers want to focus on the positive in the case of this film.

However it is a difficult film to watch. Particularly if you believe that cheating is the worst thing anyone can do (as do I) or you are a huge Seth Rogen fan (as am I). This is despite the fact that I am predisposed to be a fan of anything by Sarah Polley (who wrote and directed the film).

Unlike many independent films, after making the festival rounds and being picked up for distribution, Take This Waltz is currently available to watch by most anyone with an internet connection, thanks to the wonders of Video on Demand.

Take This Waltz centers on Margot (Michelle Williams). She is a sometimes writer and supposedly happy housewife to Lou (Seth Rogen). The film opens with Margot on a puff piece writing assignment, though we never get to see her work again during the film. While on assignment and during her return trip home she meets an intriguing man named Daniel (Luke Kirby). They make a connection with each other and then find out that they now live across the street from one another.


Margot mainly seems like a bored, horny housewife. Though the film makes takes great pains to show that Lou’s family has integrated her into theirs with welcoming arms, Lou himself is inattentive. During the film she has to mention how embarrassing it is to try to seduce your husband and he just doesn’t get it. This, to me, is probably the most intriguing part of the film. Margot obviously has some type of anxiety disorder. She isn’t just shy. You rarely see this projected on screen. So in the beginning this makes it very easy to become endeared to Margot, even though you know what’s coming.

During the course of the film Margot tries to get her hubby’s attention but he is constantly working on recipes for his cookbook because he takes his writing seriously. Despite the fact that they have silly couple rituals that they perform to stay in touch he never seems to understand Margot.

“but I found out how that worked and you weren’t all that interested in me being gentle”

This should make it easy for us to understand her gradual seduction by wannabe artist, but actual rickshaw driver Daniel but he sometimes insults her, which I do not find at all attractive. There is a very steamy scene in the film in which they discuss what they would do if they got together. He seduces her so totally with words that it’s like reading a romance novel aloud, it’s incredibly hot.

During the film you don’t really know for the longest time whether or not she will actually cheat on her husband which makes for an awkward, yet suspenseful watch. I do not believe in spoilers so I won’t tell you if they get together. You need to go watch it instead.

It should also be noted that Sarah Silverman gives a stand out performance as Rogen’s sister, Geraldine, a recovering alcoholic. However she so completely steals the scenes that she is in that you wonder if she should just have her own film until you later realize that they are using her alcoholism as a metaphor and plot point for Margot.

On the other hand you have Rogen’s performance. While he isn’t given that much to do during the bulk of the film there is a very dramatic part that feels improvised and lacking. I find it very difficult to critique him in that way but it doesn’t reach the depth that he’s shown in other dramas such as 50/50 and Funny People.

During the flick Margot changes, becoming more free, this is most likely why Williams herself likens it to a coming of age movie. I would recommend watching this movie once just because it’s so different from other films out there but I won’t be adding it to my collection.

Observe and Report is a dark comedy about a security guard at a mall who decides that he wants to become a police officer when he sees the opportunity to prove himself. This occurs when a flasher targets his mall. The film stars Seth Rogen, Ray Liotta and Anna Faris.

You can click the screencaps to see the larger versions.

Female Reporter: “I’m standing here at Forest Ridge Mall where earlier today a man exposed himself to several women before fleeing the scene. I’m here with Ronnie Barnhardt, one of the security guards here at the mall…”
Ronnie: “No, cut. Uh, you fucked up, ma’am, I’m the head of mall security you should do that again and say it right”
Female Reporter: “Uh, well Officer Barnhardt”
Ronnie: “Action”
Female Reporter: “Right, uh, is there any information you can shed on this situation?”
Ronnie: “You’re just gonna keep goin’ even though you fucked up my title?”
Female Reporter: (nods)
Ronnie: “Okay, well I’m standing here with this doctor”

Ronnie: “Everyone thinks they’re fine until someone puts something in them they don’t want in them”

Ronnie: “…it’s actually kinda my job to put myself in harm’s way to protect weaker people such as yourself who are you know cripped in the leg and what not…”

Ronnie: “…it’s clear that this pervert is some kind of sociopathic genius who plans on coming back here and finishing what he started, by murdering Brandi”
Brandi: “Oh my god, is that gonna happen? Is that true?”
Ronnie: “It’s gonna happen”
Detective Harrison: “No, it’s not gonna happen”
Ronnie: “He’s gonna murder you Brandi”

Ronnie: “Race has nothing to do with this, you fit the profile…”
Saddamn: “My dick is brown you dumb motherfucker”

Saddamn: “…last week he comes here and tells me he knows that he’s discovered my plot to blow up the Chick-fil-A. Why the fuck would I blow up Chick-fil-A? It’s fucking delicious”

Nell: “…but I think you should know that there’s no shame in going after what your dreams, so few people do it and I think you should keep doing it, no matter how many people laugh at you”
Ronnie: “Who’s laughing at me? No one laughs at me, if anything I laugh at other idiots who are tryin’ do what they want, no one laughs at me for trying to do my destiny, not how this works…”

Police Officer: “…he’s probably gonna get killed”
Detective Harrison: “Good, I hope he does get killed, fuck him, I don’t care, I’m telling you, I hate this guy”

Mom: “You know I remember when your father picked me up for our first date. I swear he was the most handsome man I’d ever laid eyes on, I knew right then and there that I would fuck him that night and that I would end up marrying him.”
Ronnie: “I sure hope that happens to me tonight.”

Ronnie: “Do you think it was my fault that dad left?”
Mom: “Definitely”

Ronnie: “Wow, that was impressive, you, I like to drink fast too so”

Ronnie: “So Brandi, I’m just dying to know, how much do you love working at this mall?”
Brandi: “Oh god, I hate that shit…”

Brandi: “Oh my god, where did you get these?” (looking at pill bottle) “Clonazepam, that’s some good shit, I’m impressed. I did not think you partied like that”
Ronnie: “God do I ever party, I party like this every 4 to 6 hours”

Brandi: (doing a shot of tequila) “Oh my god, it burns so good”

(in bed during sex she seems to be sleeping so he stops)
Brandi: “Why are you stopping motherfucker?”
Ronnie: “I’m sorry, oh god I’m sorry”

Mom: (to Dennis) “You know when Ronnie was, um, in high school I used to fuck all his friends”

Ronnie: “…unfortunately, no this picture of a penis does not cheer me up”

Dennis: “Ronnie, please can you take the dick off your face?”

Ronnie: “…finding out whose penis that is is my last shot at redemption”

Mom: “…try to look on the bright side, you may not be the smartest person in the world but you’re handsome from certain angles…”

Mom: “I just want you to know I’m ready to make a change”
Ronnie: “You’re gonna stop drinking?”
Mom: “I’m switching to beer, I can pound those all day and still keep my shit together and I’m doing it for you”
Ronnie: “I’m so proud of you mom”

Ronnie: “and if anyone here wants a girl to have sex with you and then fuck your enemy go to Brandi cuz she’s the girl that does that”

Ronnie: “I want everyone to know Ronnie Barnhardt caught the pervert, not the fuckin’ police”
