3.5-Watertowers ForCarol.com movie reviews(Extremely Tangled Web)

Isabella Patterson (Imogen Poots) is talking to a reporter about success.

shes funny that way blog 2Isabella can pinpoint the one person most responsible for her becoming a famous actress: Director Arnold Albertson (Owen Wilson).

Arnold is cheating on his wife, and has been doing so for a very long time. When he arrives at a NY hotel to direct a Broadway show, he promptly calls for a hooker. The hooker that arrives is Isabella.

Instead of just getting down to business, Arnold takes Isabella out to dinner and for a carriage ride. Very romantic.

Once the deed is done, Arnold tells Isabella that he will give her $30,000 if she stops hooking and uses that money to concentrate on her acting career. She accepts, and the next day gets a tryout for a part on Broadway…as a hooker.

Arriving at the audition….guess what? Yup.The director is Arnold, and the tangled web starts to unravel, as the wife, the hooker and a client, multiple other lovers who got the same $30,000 gift, the lead actor, the psychiatrist, the private investigator and the playwright all get involved in this multifaceted love affair.

“She’s Funny That Way” is a fun movie even though it is a job to keep track of all the relationships. Owen Wilson and Imogen Poots are great together. Not for kids.
