Flicks, Giles Hardie

Part bedroom farce, part Woody Allen wannabe, She’s Funny That Way is a funny little film that is loud and proud about being more fun than substance. Kicking off in a somewhat quirky Hollywood insider interview fashion, it is the tale of Isabella (Imogen Poots), now a big name actress who recounts the circumstances that enabled her to transition from Brooklyn nobody to rising star almost overnight. Those circumstances are insane, implausible and inventively amusing.

It's fluffy fun, packed with in-jokes for movie lovers.

A hysterical screwball fantasia that openly steals from Lubitsch, Hawks, Capra and Sturges and wants to be caught with its fingers in the till.

A derivative, low-octane comedy.

Peter Bogdanovich's attempt to update the screwball of the Golden Age lacks the requisite elegance, wit and charm.
