A few years ago, L.A.-based writer/director/actor Blayne Weaver had a big win with his rom-com Weather Girl at Oklahoma City’s deadCENTER Film Festival. The reception was so warm that he wants to bring his newest movie, 6 Month Rule, to our fine town.
Specifically, at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 13 to AMC Quail Springs Mall 24, 2501 W. Memorial. Here’s the hitch: At the time of this writing, 28 more tickets need to be sold before that one-time screening — complete with a Q-and-A with Weaver — can be concrete. You can reserve your tickets now at tugg.com — despite the name, I swear it’s not a porn site.
So what’s 6 Month Rule about? Here’s the official synopsis:
“6 Month Rule is a romantic, charming, and poignant look at relationships, seen from the eyes of Tyler (Weaver), who lives by a philosophy that allows him to avoid making any significant connections with women. He frequently boasts that he can get over any woman in 6 months or less, but this is mostly due to his fear of emotional attachment. His best friend (Martin Starr) has just become Tyler’s main project, as he tries to teach his buddy all about the joys of cold-hearted bachelorhood. However, when he keeps bumping into a fascinating woman (Natalie Morales), he discovers that no philosophy is set in stone. Julian (Patrick J. Adams) is the hipster rock star that Tyler’s character must defeat in order to win the girl.”
Readers may know Morales from her recent stint on Parks and Recreation as Tom Haverford’s girlfriend. Starr was on two hilarious TV series: Party Down and Freaks and Greeks. Also in the cast are Jaime Pressly (My Name Is Earl), Dave Foley (The Kids in the Hall), John Michael Higgins (Bad Teacher) and Vanessa Branch (the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise).
In other words, a lotta talent for a little movie, so Tugg it. Wait, that didn’t sound right. —Rod Lott

Documentary Rod Lott
As director Deborah Anderson states at the beginning of her documentary, Aroused is not a story about pornography, but about women. For half of its 69-minute running time (deliberate?), I believed her.
