For those of you getting a bit bummed about Judy Greer spending the summer in thankless Blockbuster Mom roles (seriously Hollywood, she’s great and deserves better), here’s a movie that gives the actress so much more to do. “Addicted To Fresno” features Greer in the lead role alongside a pretty talented ensemble, in what looks like a pretty light-hearted comedy caper.
Directed by Jamie Babbitt (“But I’m A Cheerleader“) with Natasha Lyonne, Fred Armisen, Molly Shannon, Ron Livingston, Allison Tolman, and Aubrey Plaza among the players, the story follows a recovering sex addict and her lesbian sister, who work together at Fresno Suites and get caught up in covering up a crime after they accidentally kill a hotel guest. This looks light and breezy, but again, the highlight seems to be Greer given a major big screen spotlight.
The film opens on October 2nd. Check out the trailer below.
