Video Trailer of Michael Douglas in Solitary Man

Movie Preview: Michael Douglas in Solitary Man

The first trailer for Solitary Man is making the rounds, and I'm admittedly confused about what to expect from this one — is it a May-December rom-com a la Woody Allen, or a drama about one man's midlife crisis? Perhaps both?

The film follows an aging Casanova (Michael Douglas) who dates a woman (Mary Louise Parker) to boost his car business — only to ruin things when he sleeps with her daughter (Imogen Poots). Along the way, you also have his own daughter (Jenna Fischer in a non-Pam role!), his ex-wife (Susan Sarandon), an old friend (Danny DeVito), and Jesse Eisenberg, who appears to be his mentee of sorts.

The thought of Douglas romancing someone in college gives me gag reflexes, and there seems to be some sort of mafia/hitman tie-in, too. (Groan.) Still, how can such a good ensemble cast be wrong? I'm really hoping to like this one, but check it out and give me your early opinion when you
