"For a Good Time, Call..." (2012 release; 85 min.) brings the story of two girls down on their luck. Katie (played by Ari Graynor) lives in a fabulous apartment in New York which she no longer can afford. Lauren (played by Lauren Miller) has just been told by her boyfriend that he wants to "evaluate" their relationship and she needs to move out. A mutual friend, Jesse (played by Justin Long), brings the girls together and even though they have an unpleasant history together from their college days, they really have no choice but to try to make things work. And how they do! Lauren finds out that Katie, in order to make some extra money, works on the side as a phone sex operator. Lauren figures out that if they do this on their own, they'll make much more money.

While a heavy emphasis is made in the promotional materials for the movie (both on the poster and in the trailer) about the sex phone operation, the movie is in fact much more about how two girls who used to hate each other become unlikely best friends 10 years later. In that sense, the movie is the female version of a "brocom".

Lauren Miller, in addition to starring, also co-wrote and co-produced the movie. She is the wife of Seth Rogen, who appears in a short but hilarious cameo. I had first noticed Miller in last year's "50/50" movie, and with this she simply confirms that she is a rising star in the Hollywood indie scene. Kudos as well for Ari Graynor, who shines as Lauren's room mate and comes across like a Bette Midler reincarnated. But a special shout-out to Justin Long, who is just fantastic as Jesse. I also want to point out that the soundtrack plays a big role in the movie, and features plenty of indie talent such as Unknown Mortal Orchestra, the Generationals, High Highs, and Los Campesinos!, just to name those. With its light-hearted touch, it is just the perfect Fall movie when everyone's grown tired of the summer blockbuster big budget action hero movies and never-ending explosions.

I love this movie! It's so hilarious and fun, I have so many "favorite" parts. The language is vulgar (which is to be expected since it's about a phone sex line) but it's balanced by the complete lack of any nudity. Ari Graynor steals the show but both actresses do a great job with telling the story of the friendship at the heart of this movie. I've seen this movie at least ten times; I will never get tired of it.

I happened upon this movie on HBO tonight. Not one I would have usually watched, but I thought it was adorable. Some of the other reviews say it better, so I'll keep it short. I really enjoyed this. Just a cute movie that made me laugh throughout. Definitely not high art or something you'd want to watch with your mother, but good fun!

Not for the faint of heart when it comes to sex talk, this movie is absolutely hysterical. I'd definitely recommend NOT watching it with a parent, but a good gal pal. I hope these girls get more comedic roles b/c they're fantastic in this movie.

I knew from the commercials that this film would be a little on the funny and goofy side of things, even cartoonish, but this movie has a lot of heart in it and in the end is a story about more than just a friendship; it's about a sisterhood. Loved everything about it!
