It's an off-beat romantic dramedy about a matress salesman (Paul Dano from There Will Be Blood) who falls in love with a customer (Zooey Deschanel from Yes Man) while on the fast-track to adopting a Chinese baby. I don't know what it is, but casting directors just love to peg her as the object of men's affections, like she'll play in the upcoming 500 Days of Summer. However, I think it's refreshing that she doesn't have double D's, blonde hair, and half a brain.

I LOVE YOU, BETH COOPER
I want to first say that films like this don't make triple digit millions, but it totally should get cult classic status. I mean this complete nobody, Paul Rust (Semi-Pro), just rolls into Hollywood to star opposite Hayden Panettiere ("Heroes")--every young (and old) man's wet dream--in a film about a teenager who is so obessed with the hot popular girl that he has the audacity to declare his undying love for her during his valedictorian speech. And since she's apparently a wild child, she decides to secretly prove that he doesn't love the real her--as opposed to the fictionalized version that everyone worships--by taking him out on the wildest night of his life. Rust has a gift for slapstick and I could not contain myself while watching this trailer. While I don't think it'll be as great of an adaptation as Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist, I do think it'll make plenty of teenagers laugh.
