FOR A GOOD TIME, CALL… (Alliance, 2012) D: Jamie Travis, w/ Ari Graynor, Lauren Miller. Rating: NNN; DVD package: NN Rating: NNN
Lots of lewd laughs and some touching moments make For A Good Time, Call... enjoyable light entertainment that wears its female-friendship heart on its sleeve but doesn't take it too seriously.
Prissy careerist Lauren (Lauren Miller) and free-spirited Katie (Ari Graynor) have hated each other since that piss incident in university, and being forced to share an apartment doesn't improve matters, until Lauren turns Katie's phone sex job into a high-paying proposition.
High-spirited raunch ensues with Seth Rogen and Kevin Smith in wanker cameos, Sugar Lyn Beard as a very strange phone girl and Justin Long as the girls' gay best friend.
Stars Graynor and Miller and co-writer Katie Anne Naylon talk all over each other and director Jamie Travis in a commentary that's full of bubbly enthusiasm and a few insights into the improvisatory nature of low-budget filmmaking. The deleted scenes are worth a look, if only for the dildo fight.
EXTRAS: Commentary, making-of interviews, deleted scenes. English, French audio and subtitles.
