Trying to get noticed amongst hundreds of films is tough, and though it premiered last fall at the Toronto International Film Festival, the indie dramedy "Writers" didn't make much of a splash. And while there hasn't been much heard about the film since then, a trailer has wormed its way online, giving a pretty extensive look at the film.

Review: 'I Don't Know How She Does It' Is A Pained, Unfunny, Politically Questionable Bore

One of the "charmingly neurotic" tics of the main character of "I Don't Know How She Does It," played brittlely and with affected strain by Sarah Jessica Parker, is making to-do lists. Since the year is 2011 and editing software has come a long way, we see her visualize the list as the prepares for sleep – everything from arranging her daughter's play date to doing some Kegel exercises (yes, seriously) – with words and small images appearing tattooed on the ceiling of her bohemian chic Boston apartment (accompanied by a never-ending stream of voice-over narration). While watching "I Don't Know How She Does It," which at a swift 89 minutes still feels longer than the "Three Colors" trilogy combined, you'll be tempted to make a similar mental inventory of things that you could (and should),instead of watching this wretched claptrap, which we're fairly certain has single-handedly set the feminist cause back a good 35-40 years.

Julianne Moore, Greg Kinnear To Star In 'The English Teacher'

Indie comedy "The English Teacher" is about to get an infusion of 1990's-flavored star power. Julianne Moore has signed on to play the title role, with Greg Kinnear in an unspecified supporting position (filthy!). Moore plays a small-town high school educator who has to deal with the unannounced return of a star pupil who crashed and burned trying to start a career in New York City. Moore eventually convinces the former student to direct his unproduced play at the high school, which yields all sorts of misunderstandings. Frankly, we'd rather see Amber Waves in this role than Moore, but perhaps that's our old high school teacher fantasies flaring up again. And again. And right there, again.

A few weeks back, "Bridesmaids" struck something of a blow for the female-fronted comedy, by doing what so few have in recent years, and remembering to be funny and touching while failing to be patronizing, unpleasant, one-dimensional and misogynistic in its depiction of its characters. Did it mark an opening of the floodgates? After all, the film's breakout star Melissa McCarthy, not exactly your traditional female lead, has already landed a starring role in a new project, while the more imminent films in the same genre, projects like "Bad Teacher" and "What's Your Number," seem to give some reason for optimism. Were the days of the mind-meltingly awful rom-com about an unappealing lead juggling career, family and love, trying to have it all and discovering that she can't, she has to be a wife and a mother, finally over?

The next few months might be dominated by summer blockbusters, but we're also starting to get the festival hits from the last six months: acclaimed indies from Toronto, Sundance and SXSW, films like "Submarine," "Beginners," "The Trip" and "Page One," all land in the next while and a trailer has just debuted for one of the starrier offerings from Park City this year.

How can a woman, who is a high powered finance executive, handle a marriage with an architect (who shockingly makes less than she does) while raising two kids? Guess we'll find out soon enough as casting continues for "I Don't Know How She Does It."

Now the film has finally arrived thanks to Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Michel Gondry and Sony and well... you've probably read our review by now, but it hasn't been easy.
