|No one stands on a car in this movie.|
As promised this week will be all about movies that are not considered big Hollywood. Don't be fooled though! That only means that they're small Hollywood! While it might be considered a minor project released at the Sundance Festival, let me put things into perspective. The Go-Getter stars Lou Taylor Pucci (I would guess he is best known for his performance in The Chumscrubber if you know him at all) opposite Zooey Deschanel (currently she stars on the TV show New Girl but she's appeared in a variety of other movies, including (500) Days of Summer and Elf to name a few) and Jena Malone (probably best remembered as Gretchin Ross in Donnie Darko). The movie ran for only 3 days and grossed over 11 million. That's not exactly mom and pop, and director Martin Hynes spent around 23,000 dollars just on establishing and location shots (large sections of the movie are actually shot on location, which is a pretty big deal because it is a road trip movie).

If you enjoy movies where the journey is at least as important as the destination, or just like to watch wienery losers get the snot beat out of them, this is a good time. Also you get to see Zooey in her underwear, and also Jena in her underwear, so if that's your thing you might also want to check it out. Even if it isn't still give it a watch. There's something elusively charming about it.
On Thursday we go into the biohazard/crime scene cleaning business, and throw out a bathtub full of shrimp that's way past its expiration date.
