“Aubrey Plaza and Michael Caine’s ‘Best Sellers’ Is Straight from the Bargain Bin”


Okay, you got me: I’m not looking to burn Best Sellers at all. It isn’t a movie worth burning. But I would like to hear the story of how Aubrey Plaza got the lead role over Ellen Wong*, and how a concept that sounds like it should work on paper didn’t end up working in practice. Crabby Michael Caine paired with the actresses of her generation who is probably best at playing crabby herself? C’mon. 

You can read my full disappointed review for Paste Magazine.

*Easy enough, I’m gonna guess that it’s because people know who Plaza is and they don’t know who Wong is.
