A Method Actor Prepares

Ahhhh, Premium Movie Channels. Whether or not you actually do, you have to love them. They bring you little nuggets like 10 Items Or Less when you can find nothing better to do with an hour and a half.

It wasn't anything dazzling or particularly moving; but it was enjoyable. At first glance, the movie is just satirical view into how out of touch with reality not just actors, but movie stars become; but really, it's more than that. Morgan Freeman plays the role with such grace and charm -- not an air of snottiness -- that it almost ends up being a love letter from Hollywood to the real world.

Plus, the female lead is super cute.

Here's the trailer.

I suggest you check it out on SHOHD. If you're lucky enough to get it free, like we do. If not, just rent it. Netflix it. Whatever.


  1. Great movie. The interview I saw with Morgan Freeman discussing this role, he described it as a bit him, a bit of a satirical view of Hollywood. Freeman, seems to be just a regular guy, not at all affected by his fame, living in a modest home in Tennesse, driving around a 2001 Nissan Maxima.

  2. That's the girl from Spanglish! Have you seen that? It was very cute.
    And Morgan Freeman is the coolest. It looks awesome, I can't wait.

  3. I haven't, but its in the Netflix queue now. I think you'll really like 10 Items.

  4. It really is a great cast. Tea Leoni is great as usual, and Cloris Leachman is hilarious.
