GOOD FOR NOTHING is an adventurous romp set in the sweeping Old West from Mike Wallis in his directorial debut. Inspired by the Spaghetti Westerns and celebrating the Western genre with an interesting twist, the film follows an odd romance and the resulting emotional confusion of an outlaw who reluctantly develops strong feelings for a woman he has kidnapped. Yet when the outlaw tries to force himself on the young and beautiful Isabella Montgomery, he finds himself unable to 'get it up' due to a surprising bout of performance anxiety. Unable to understand the reason for his erectile dysfunction, the outlaw goes on a quest to find a solution for his problem with the kidnapped Isabella in tow. He tries various means to cure his ailment - including tracking down fancy doctors and sage medicine men - all in an attempt to fix his problem and finally having his way with Isabella. But the pair are pursued by an unpredictable posse who are set on killing both the outlaw and Isabella, who they have mistaken for a whore and accomplice to the outlaw. Adventure, drama and humor ensue when this unlikely duo are forced to help each other to survive in this unique film, which is the first classic Western feature made in New Zealand.

Friends with Limited Releases

March 9th, 2012

There are plenty of limited releases on this week's list, including a couple that earned some strong pre-release buzz. One of these, Friends with Kids is opening in close to 400 theaters, which is a huge amount for a limited release. It will certainly be the biggest limited release at the box office, but I'm not sure how well it will do on the per theater chart. There are a few films earning amazing reviews, including Jiro Dreams of Sushi, Footnote, and Sound of Noise. I'm not sure any have what it takes to expand significantly, but hopefully at least one of them will find a receptive audience in limited release. More...
