Prepare to be skeptical.
There’s a new romantic comedy coming our way. It’s called How Do You Know. It stars Paul Rudd, Reese Witherspoon and Owen Wilson in a love triangle.
Ok, you might say.

  1. I’ve seen that movie before.
  2. Sure, Paul Rudd is funny with he’s in a Judd Apatow movie, but not when he’s paired with Jennifer Aniston or some such person.
  3. Owen Wilson in a Wes Anderson movie? I’m there! But paired with a Jennifer Aniston-type…
  4. Reese Witherspoon = funny? Sure, there was Election, but…

Ok. I hear all that.
But the movie is written and directed by James L. Brooks. And he can be brilliant (As Good As It Gets, Terms of Endearment). Every decade or so he can produce a comic masterpiece (Broadcast News). And even when he makes a pedestrian movie (Spanglish) it’s still smartly written with some solid laughs. This is one of the guys behind The Simpsons, after all.
So, let’s be cautiously optimistic about this one. Coming in December
