You gotta hand it to director Sebastian Gutierrez (“Women In Trouble,” “Elektra Luxx“). He knows that his cinematic oeuvre lies in shooting as many beautiful women in as many skimpy outfits as possible (particularly his longtime ladyfriend Carla Gugino) and he certainly knows how to work a Rolodex, enlisting a bevy stars to feature in his low-budget features that nobody watches. It seems he cranks one of these out every six months, and so, here we go with “Girl Walks Into A Bar.”
Starring Carla Gugino, Zachary Quinto, Josh Hartnett, Danny DeVito, Rosario Dawson, Robert Forster, Alexis Bledel, Amber Valletta, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Michelle Ryan, Gil Bellows, Aaron Tveit, Kevin Zegers and Xander Berkeley, the comedy follows a group of apparent strangers in interlocking stories taking place in 10 different bars during the course of one evening in Los Angeles. Lots of teasing shots of barely dressed ladies and yep, that’s a bunch of naked people playing ping pong.
The film will debut on YouTube on March 11th and hit SXSW later that same month. Synopsis and trailer below.
GIRL WALKS INTO A BAR connects a group of apparent strangers over one night across ten bars throughout Los Angeles. Zachary Quinto stars as a dentist who teams up with a feisty would-be assassin (Carla Gugino) to put the final touches on the plan to kill his wife. Once he makes a play for the assassin’s payment, he unknowingly sets off a chain of events that fuels a crosstown journey through the many lounges, bars, strip clubs and the occasional nudist ping pong clubs scattered across Los Angeles. By turns funny and heartbreaking, this sharp-witted comedy features ten interconnected vignettes that build to a revealing finish.
