Trailer Watch: Good Dick

Ooookay. So this is definitely one of the oddest premises for a romantic comedy I’ve seen in… uh… ever… and yet it looks crowd-pleasingly formulaic, as well. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

Good Dick is a “romance about a video store clerk (Jason Ritter) and a female customer (Marianna Palka) who rents erotic DVDs from him. Not quite the sexploitation film its title might suggest, it is an unexpected romantic comedy following a young man on his pursuit of a lonely, troubled woman set in present day Los Angeles.”

The film earned writer-director-star Marianna Palka the New Directors Award at the 2008 Edinburgh Film Festival and was an official selection in dramatic competition at this year’s Sundance.

Good Dick will penetrate movie theaters in New York and LA on October 10th, with theaters in Columbus to get sloppy seconds on the 17th.
