Good acting by Bonnie Somerville but much of the scenes seemed forced and Neil Patrick Harris seemed uncomfortable and embarrassed to be in this movie. He was totally unbelievable and exhibited no acting chops for his character.

Crude sexuality...continued

Great little movie theater in the heart of LA run by film lovers. Smart comedy, amazingly well written and acted quite well as well. A lot of clever twists, standout Amy Cedaris, well shot and scored. Much better than 95% of the stuff at...continued

Quotes & Highlights

“Like Ruthless People and A Fish Called Wanda…the kind of adult comedy Hollywood doesn’t make anymore.” —Movie City News

Watch the trailer for The Best and the Brightest on YouTube.


A cast to die for, an unpredictable plot full of twists, and a nothing-held-back sense of silly, yet intelligent sense of humor—these are just some of the things that make The Best and the Brightest live up to its name. Josh Shelov directs one of the edgiest comedies ever to touch on the rearing of children, featuring Neil Patrick Harris and Bonnie Somerville as a newly-transplanted New York yuppie couple trying in vain to enroll their little girl into an absurdly elitist private kindergarten. After they hire eccentric placement consultant Amy Sedaris, a most outlandish “Three’s Company”-meets-the-Farrelly Brothers chain of events tumbles into place. To say any more would be to ruin the film’s many surprises, but get stoked for savage swipes at class struggle, as well as some of the most hilarious filthy “poetry” on record. British sensation Peter Serafinowicz, John Hodgman and an outrageously sleazy Christopher McDonald also star in the fiercest farce so far this year. Director/co-writer Josh Shelov, co-writer Michael Jaeger and composer Ted Masur will be on hand for a Q&A after the film on both nights. Co-star Bridget Regan will join them on the 11th, and co-star Bonnie Somerville will join them on the 12th.
