'Swinging With the Finkels' starring Martin Freeman and Mandy Moore - trailer review

Swinging With the Finkels Directed by: Jonathan Newman Starring: Martin Freeman, Mandy Moore, Jonathan Silverman Rating: Unrated Release Date: August 26, 2011 (limited)


Thoughts by TSR: I like Freeman, who was great on the UK's The Office, but wow this is a weird trailer. A (very attractive) couple becomes bored with their marriage and decides to start swinging. It looks like the whole film is about finding someone to swing with. This trailer is kind of weird, it sort of explains what the film is about but then sort of ends, I don't know what it's supposed to be saying. A married couple tries to find a couple to swing with and...? What they showed doesn't look that great, or particularly funny. I'm surprised it's being distributed, it seems like the company does not care about this movie. By the way, why is Jonathan Silverman billed first? He's most famous for Weekend At Bernie's. That doesn't bode well. Even if you think Americans don't know Freeman, Moore's starred in several movies and she was a former pop star! Much better credentials.

I won't be seeing this movie. Unless they show us something different, I recommend you guys steer clear too.
