Movie Preview of Serious Moonlight Starring Meg Ryan and Written by Adrienne Shelley

Movie Preview: Meg Ryan in Serious Moonlight

Jenna Elfman's character on Accidentally on Purpose recently made a crack that she knows the stages of womanhood by Meg Ryan movies, and it immediately made me miss seeing the actress in romantic comedies. The trailer for Serious Moonlight may look like a twisted rom-com, but hey, there's mention of love and definitely comedy, so I'm interested.

From the late Adrienne Shelley (who wrote Waitress) and directed by Curb Your Enthusiasm's Cheryl Hines, Serious Moonlight portrays Ryan as a woman who kinda loses it when she learns of her husband's affair with a younger woman (played by Timothy Hutton and Kristen Bell, respectively). I'm hoping this isn't just a crazy woman on display, and that the female filmmakers give it some grounding — I would so love to welcome Meg Ryan back into the funny actress fold. Also, look out for Justin Long in a small part as a petty criminal.

I would definitely see this. I love Meg Ryan, and have missed seeing her in movies lately. Also I loved her and Timothy Hutton in French Kiss (which is one of my favorite movies).

YES! I'm on board. To heck with the lip talk, she's absolutely unparalleled as a leading lady. She has all the magic working for her when she's got a good script and the right enthusiasm. I'm sure there's much more gold left to mine out of her!
