In Dollface – the new comedy series from Hulu – Jules (Kat Dennings (Thor, 2 Broke Girls) is unexpectedly dumped by her boyfriend of five years and discovers that she’s let her friendships with other women evaporate. As she tries to rectify that situation, she has to contend with both real life and own vivid imagination.
2 Broke Girls [CBS, Mondays, 9:30/8:30C] mixes a bunch of comedic elements we’ve seen before – odd couples, female BFFs, rich/poor, waitressing in a greasy spoon – with style, pizzazz and a dash of topicality.
One of the biggest movies of the year – in terms of grand, epic fun – Thor gets a DVD release that provides one thing I always enjoy [a terrific commentary track by director Kenneth Branagh] but lacks the one thing I was most hoping to see: a promised short feature built around S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Coulson. Turns out that, contrary to promises made, it’s only available on the Blu-ray.
Still, even without it, the DVD release for Thor is still great fun.
The trailer for Charlie Bartlett revolves, mostly, around the application of prescription to elicit humor. If the film had been solely about that, it would likely have been just as entertaining, but it would have been a one-trick pony. Fortunately, it is both smarter and wiser than that.
