    Anna Faris To Star In Stalker-Roommate Comedy, Will Take Less Crazy Lead Role

    Lots of buzz is building around Anna Faris these days. She was recently the subject of an extensive -- if somewhat early, and kind of random -- profile in the New Yorker that looked over her career, chatted about the making of the forthcoming "What's Your Number?" and even got her opinion on past fi...

    Infamous 'Observe And Report' Vomit Sex Scene Still Divisive, Anna Faris Uncertain She'd Do It Again

    Also Hated 'My Super-Ex Girlfriend' & Was Glad It BombedWhile critics and audiences pretty much agreed that Jody Hill's "Observe and Report" was an unfunny misfire, perhaps the lasting "legacy" of the movie was the very uncomfortable sex scene between Ronnie (Seth Rogen) and Brandi (Anna Faris).

While Warner Bros. will take another bite of the bankable apple with "The Hangover Part II," their competitors are rolling their dice with female driven laffers with Universal's "Bridesmaids," Sony's "Bad Teacher" and Fox's "What's Your Number" all in the pipeline. Female driven comedies -- that aren't rom-coms -- are already a hard sell and it's no surprise that execs are fine tuning the films up until the last minute.

    Watch: 'Take Me Home Tonight' Confirms That It's Incredibly Lame To Work At Suncoast Video

    Ah, Suncoast Video. The one-time suburban staple of home video rentals is no more, but it lives on in "Take Me Home Tonight" a 1988-set comedy that seems to giving a big, huge nod to the '80s films of John Hughes.
