Lake Bell hits sophomore slump with marital comedy 'I Do ... Until I Don't'
LATimes - 6 months
Writer-director-actress Lake Bell’s directorial debut, “In a World …,” sparkled with a refreshing feistiness in its unapologetic take-down of gender inequality in Hollywood. Her follow-up film, “I Do … Until I Don’t,” which she also wrote, directed and stars in, might have taken a similarly voracious...

Between 2002 and 2012, she made “Sweet Home Alabama,” “Just Like Heaven,” “Four Christmases,” “How Do You Know” and “This Means War.” During that same time period, the romantic comedy genre largely dried up, at least in comparison to the ‘90s.

Josh Lucas, Terrence Howard and Lake Bell are haunted by the laughable 'Ghost of New Orleans'
LATimes - about 1 year
The type of vehicle that even Nicolas Cage likely would have passed on, “Ghost of New Orleans,” by Serbian director Peter (Predrag) Atonijevic, is a laughably pretentious crime caper-supernatural thriller hybrid that comes up woefully lacking on both fronts. Languishing on the shelf for the past...

We Need To Talk About Justin Theroux's Unfortunate Birthday Tattoo
Huffington Post - over 1 year
What does Justin Theroux want to never happen again ... again?  The “Leftovers” star debuted some questionable new ink on Instagram Thursday, one day after his 45th birthday and one week after his wedding anniversary with his wife, Jennifer Aniston.  The tattoo, which reads “Never Again Again” (what?), was the handiwork of celebrity tattoo artist Scott Campbell, who is married to actress Lake Bell, and apparently a birthday treat for “The Leftovers” star.  “Thanks @scampbell333 and fellow birthday boy @lousyleo for letting me bite it. #thanksagainagain,” he wrote. Thanks @scampbell333 and fellow birthday boy @lousyleo for letting me bite it. #thanksagainagain A photo posted by @justintheroux on Aug 10, 2016 at 4:06pm PDT In a futile attempt to decipher the meaning of Theroux’s tattoo, we came up with a list of things it could possibly be about: watching “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle,” admitting that he co-wrote “Zoolander 2,” being snub...

Winspear's Women, and the Wounded in the War to End All War
Huffington Post - over 2 years
"... they've been bringing in wounded late at night so no one can see them... the men are in a terrible state, and they arrive with their clothes reeking of dirt and rats... "... They bring them in on trains when there's no one to see them -- men with no faces, with no legs, and all the blood on their uniforms -- they don't even have time to change them, all that French mud still on them." Thea Brissenden's ambulance-driving skills, and her courage under fire, in France, make it possible for grievously wounded men to survive long enough to be transported all the way to a London hospital. Thea Brissenden is one of several admirable characters in Jacqueline Winspear's World War One novel The Care and Management of Lies. Electing service London's 1915 intolerance of suffragettes and persecution of peace-proponents oblige Thea to flee. She escapes those battles to serve in France as a member of Britain's Voluntary Aid Detachments. Thea volunteers to ferry wounded from bl...
