I'm actually really curious about Tim Allen's directorial debut, the indie comedy Crazy on the Outside. It's not just the words "director" and "indie" appearing with Allen's name, it's the cast of actors he's assembled that I'm interested in.
Sigourney Weaver and J.K. Simmons play the siblings of Tommy, Allen's character, who has just been released from prison and is trying to settle back into the real world. Plenty of folks pop up to derail him, including Ray Liotta and Julie Bowen. If none of those actors are enticing enough, in saunters Big Love's Jeanne Tripplehorn as Tommy's parole officer and romantic foil. It looks kind of interesting, even if the plot of a guy trying to make good isn't anything new. There's at least one laugh out loud moment from Weaver, who I love seeing in comedic roles.
