THIS IS ONE BAD MOVIE ! If anyone has watched the movie ”Forgetting Sarah Marshall” they would have witnessed the lead of that film playing a detective in a cheesy, over the top TV detective show, it was so overboard it was silly funny.
Well that same person Kristen Bell is now playing the role for real in this film, only thing is, it’s not a comedy but should be, her acting is horrible and dialogue and character development is on par with the parody version in Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
Give this one a wide berth.
Facts on the film -
Was shot in 23 days. Filming began on June 17, 2013 and wrapped on July 23, 2013 at 4:34 AM. Exactly 11 months later after the Kickstarter campaign was launched, on February 12, 2014, the film was finally done on post production.
As a result of backing the project on Kickstarter, many Marshmallows (nickname to the Veronica Mars fans) were featured as extras in the movie. Steven Dengler, the top donator, pledged $10000 and won a speaking role in the film.
When the idea of Kickstarter emerged, Kristen Bell and Rob Thomas met with the Warner Bros. brass, which gave their blessing to the project and agreed to help distribute the movie. Their reaction was “if you can show there’s enough fan interest to warrant a movie, we’re on board.” And they did, with $5,702,153 pledged of the $2,000,000 goal and 91,585 backers.
Funded in large part by a campaign on Kickstarter.com, breaking all of the site’s records up to April, 2013. Some of the accomplishments were: Fastest project to reach $1 million. Fastest project to reach $2 million. All-time highest-funded project in FILM category. Third highest-funded project in Kickstarter history. Most project backers of any project in Kickstarter history.
