Here is the new trailer for the upcoming movie LAY THE FAVORITE. The film, directed by Stephen Frears and starring Bruce Willis, Vince Vaughn, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Rebecca Hall, Joshua Jackson, will be released on demand November 2nd and in theaters December 7th.

Beth Raymer (Hall) leaves behind her life as a stripper in Florida and heads to Las Vegas to realize her dream: being a cocktail waitress in a glitzy casino. But, when her career goals don’t pan out, she falls in with Dink (Willis), a kind and idiosyncratic sports gambler. Beth wins Dink’s admiration when she shows herself to be something of a gambling prodigy, but she also wins the ire of Dink’s wife, Tulip (Zeta-Jones), when her relationship with her boss seems to extend beyond the professional. Based on a true story, LAY THE FAVORITE is a heartfelt comedy of finding friendship in the least likely places.

THE WATCH Movie Review

On paper, this movie would seem to be really good. Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, and Richard Ayoade teaming up to do a comedy flick with a funny premise, gun play, and aliens; what can be better? Well that’s what I thought. The film will make you laugh a few times and it will entertain you enough but it’s not as good as it would seem on paper. My most important piece of advice regarding this movie is, if you decide to see it, don’t go into it with high expectations. Even though it’s got an interesting plot for a comedy (neighborhood watch vs. aliens), it seems like a cookie cutter comedy. Ben practically phoned in his role and Vince about half of his. Jonah was a little more tuned-in, and not-so-popular-on-the-big-screen Richard helped keep the movie afloat. There was too much corniness, predictability, and cliché. The story has so much potential but the comedy just didn’t seem that fresh. For example, a movie that comes to mind comparatively is Paul and that one is much funnier and overall better. It does have its share of raunchiness, WTF moments, and actor solos (moments in the film where it seems the director lets them each do their own little routine). READ FULL REVIEW
