Margie: Squirrels to the nuts! Oh, are you okay? I cannot believe I'm running into you Derek!
Arnold Albertson: Shhh!
Margie: No, I'm not going to be quiet! It's Margie, remember? From Chicago? I've looked everywhere for you! You don't understand, you've changed my life! I went to fashion school, and I'm the executive buyer here.
Arnold Albertson: Shut up!
Margie: Besides that, you gave me the single best night I ever had in bed and out. And it's all because of you and the squirrels and the nuts!

The movie, the cast and the lovely Imogen Poots... They're all funny that way
8 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

The film feels like those old time french or Woody Allen comedy of errors. The hands of Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach as executive producers can be noticed, witch doesn't steal any of the writer and director Peter Bogdanovich's credits. The whole movie is really funny, and Imogen Poots leads it the right way and George Morfogen's character, perfectly played, emphasizes that old time comedy taste. Needless to say that the cast worked brilliantly. All the characters were well written, so there is half way through, but I can't see any miscasting in this movie, not even for the secondary parts. Something you don't see everyday in the movies. Simple and well crafted... Good old time laughs... Nowadays, it feels like the rule is to overthink in comedy... And "She's Funny That Way" skip that rule.
