Oh, all right, if you say so. In his first directorial theatrical feature since The Cat’s Meow in 1984, veteran filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich puts out a fairly routine sex farce about a philandering Hollywood director (Owen Wilson), a prostitute with a heart of gold (Imogen Poots, complete with overdone New Yawk accent), the director’s wronged wife (Kathryn Hahn), and the peekaboo games they play in and around a Broadway stage play. If we hadn’t watched the credits, we might mistake it for a typical Woody Allen older man-younger woman fantasy, equipped as it is with a large cast of lively actors: Rhys Ifans, Jennifer Aniston, Will Forte, Debi Mazar, Lucy Punch, et al. Lightweight, occasionally mirthful, but dreadfully, self-consciously old-fashioned. Screenplay by Louise Stratten and Bogdanovich (93 min.).
