Walk of Shame is an upcoming comedy starring Elizabeth Banks, who you might remember from my dreams. She plays a news reporter hoping to become an anchor, only to have a one night stand that leaves her stranded and making her way across Los Angeles without her phone, money or car.
The reporter has 8 hours to get across town for her interview for her dream job. Along the way she runs into a series of misadventures, no doubt funny ones, and maybe gets the interview of a lifetime. I’m guessing this interview will make up for her ratty appearance at the interview. And she gets the job because we’re all rooting for her and such.
I like it!
Walk of Shame
Walk of Shame comes from director Steven Brill, who made Little Nicky, Without a Paddle, and Ready to Rumble. Oh…. good. He also wrote the screenplay.

What’s Good About It?
I like Elizabeth Banks. A LOT. And James Marsden is a pretty good actor. The concept seems good enough, and I think Banks can pull of the comedic acting while also being hot enough to be a believable news anchor.
What’s Bad About It?
I don’t trust writer/director Brill. He’s made some shitty movies.
Our Clever Prediction
I’m hopeful. It’s primarily Banks’ charisma that makes me think there’s potential for Walk of Shame, and the concept, along with the likeability of Banks and Marsden, that make me believe the film might be charming enough to watch.
Also, look at the set pics! YOWZA. I’d like to rip that dress right off her!
