‘Rule’d out?

Help get ‘6 Month Rule’ here in 11 days.

A few years ago, L.A.-based writer/director/actor Blayne Weaver had a big win with his rom-com Weather Girl at Oklahoma City’s deadCENTER Film Festival. The reception was so warm that he wants to bring his newest movie, 6 Month Rule, to our fine town.

Specifically, at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 13 to AMC Quail Springs Mall 24, 2501 W. Memorial. Here’s the hitch: At the time of this writing, 28 more tickets need to be sold before that one-time screening — complete with a Q-and-A with Weaver — can be concrete. You can reserve your tickets now at tugg.com — despite the name, I swear it’s not a porn site.

So what’s 6 Month Rule about? Here’s the official synopsis:

“6 Month Rule is a romantic, charming, and poignant look at relationships, seen from the eyes of Tyler (Weaver), who lives by a philosophy that allows him to avoid making any significant connections with women. He frequently boasts that he can get over any woman in 6 months or less, but this is mostly due to his fear of emotional attachment. His best friend (Martin Starr) has just become Tyler’s main project, as he tries to teach his buddy all about the joys of cold-hearted bachelorhood. However, when he keeps bumping into a fascinating woman (Natalie Morales), he discovers that no philosophy is set in stone.  Julian (Patrick J. Adams) is the hipster rock star that Tyler’s character must defeat in order to win the girl.”

Readers may know Morales from her recent stint on Parks and Recreation as Tom Haverford’s girlfriend. Starr was on two hilarious TV series: Party Down and Freaks and Greeks. Also in the cast are Jaime Pressly (My Name Is Earl), Dave Foley (The Kids in the Hall), John Michael Higgins (Bad Teacher) and Vanessa Branch (the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise).

In other words, a lotta talent for a little movie, so Tugg it. Wait, that didn’t sound right. —Rod Lott

Ruby Sparks

In this appealing indie rom-com, a novelist’s girl of his dreams springs from the page to a real person.


Comedy

Rod Lott
In Ruby Sparks, wunderkind author Calvin Weir-Fields (Paul Dano, There Will Be Blood) has a few problems — one being that he is dateless, another that his male dog pees like a girl. More pressing is that he lacks the inspiration to follow up the Great American Novel that landed the high-school dropout on The New York Times best-seller list when he was all of 19.

Any cries of nepotism in the case of Rashida Jones officially can be buried, and the dirt above patted with a shovel for good measure.

Peace, Love & Misunderstanding

You'll want to punch a hippie.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Nothing can bring out one’s inner Richard Nixon like a flight of baby-boomer whimsy that rubs your nose in 1960s nostalgia. Peace, Love & Misunderstanding, a gentle-minded paean to the Woodstock generation, might just make you want to punch a hippie.

How to Save a Marriage and Ruin Your Life

And ogle Stella Stevens in the process.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Coming at the tail end of Hollywood’s innocence, 1968’s How to Save a Marriage and Ruin Your Life is one of those old-school romantic comedies that indulges in such outdated notions that a woman’s place is in the home.

Much Ado About Nothing

Great Shakes!


Comedy

Aimee Williams
Testing the adaptability of a literary and theater masterpiece, Josh Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing obliterates all of the pomp and ceremony typically associated with a Shakespeare production, bringing it down to earth in Southern California.

New Ado

City Rep places Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing in frontier Oklahoma.


Performing Arts

Larry Laneer
Oklahoma City Repertory Theatre’s Much Ado About Nothing, now at the Freede Little Theatre, is one of the most neatly acted and clearly presented productions of a Shakespeare play seen around here in a long time. It’s also a comedy that is practically devoid of humor.
