She's Funny That Way

After casting a call girl (Imogeen Poots) he has frequented in his latest production, a stage director (Owen Wilson) also hires his wife (Kathryn Hahn), her lover (Rhys Ifans) while the writer (Will Forte) becomes involved with the escort's therapist (Jennifer Aniston). Peter Bogdanovich's latest Hollywood throwback has it's moments, as do Wilson and Aniston among the cast, but is too inconsistent and too bent on emulating classic farce that it loses sight of making a funny, coherent picture. Many cameos. The final one is, let's just say, strange.
