It was only a matter of time before someone tried to fully exploit the social media age for the evils of the generic romantic comedy and "A Case Of You," a new Justin Long-led rom-com, does just that; abusing the Facebook platform to create the first FB stalker comedy. Somehow, everything creepy and vile in this Kat Coiro-directed comedy ("L!fe Happens") is meant to seem comically cute and not the restraining-order freaky that it clearly is. Like all of these meretricious and morally reprehensible culture-farts, it’s presented as harmless and adorable at heart, but as the central quintessentially dorky character becomes more and more fawning and subservient, the actors themselves seem to border on queasiness.

The quirk alert for "A Case Of You" goes off pretty early once you realize the love interest in the film is named Birdie Hazel, while Peter Dinklage plays a flamboyant barista with an unpronounceable name that rhymes with Gerard. Laughing yet? Then this rom-com might be for you.

It was only a matter of time before someone tried to fully exploit our current social media communication age for the evils of the generic romantic comedy and "A Case Of You," a new Justin Long-led rom-com, does just that; abusing the Facebook platform to create the first creepy FB stalker comedy. Somehow, everything creepy and vile in this Kat Coiro-directed comedy ("L!fe Happens") is meant to seem comically cute and not the restraining-order freaky that it clearly is. Like all of these meretricious and morally-reprehensible culture-farts, it’s presented as harmless and adorable at heart, but as the central quintessentially dorky character becomes more and more fawning and subservient, the actors themselves seem border on queasiness.

2013 Tribeca preview
Running from April 17-28, the 12th incarnation of the Tribeca Film Festival starts this week. It's a festival which has only grown in stature and confidence over the years; those awkward toddler years in which the line up was rather unwieldy and the standard a little haphazard are now just a distant memory. And if you consider the festival's timing -- sandwiched between the titans of Sundance and Cannes -- the fact that it has managed to carve out a well-respected identity for itself, and not simply be seen as a potted version of one or an extended trailer for the other, is all the more impressive.

It looks like Justin Long has been working his little book of phone numbers hard. The upcoming film "A Case Of You," which he co-wrote, has already lined up an impressive cast with Evan Rachel Wood, Peter Dinklage, Sam Rockwell, Vince Vaughn, Busy Phillips and Keir O'Donnell (who also co-wrote the script along with Justin's brother Chris, who is a co-producer) and now two more names have come along.

Receiving his big break in the 2001 Victor Salva-helmed “Jeepers Creepers,” actor Justin Long has since made a name of his dopey brand of humor in comedies like “Accepted” and “Dodgeball,” while also mixing it up with supporting roles in genre fare like “Drag Me To Hell” and “Live Free or Die Hard.” Though it’s Long’s next role that may serve as a major profile upgrade on the actor’s resume if all goes accordingly.
