Rizzo Knocked Up with Bundle of Joy


FilmStew.com reports that Stockard Channing (Grease, West Wing) will direct The Joy of Funerals, (Bridget Jones meets Wedding Crashers?) based on a short story collection by Alix Strauss. I haven't read the book but if you have, let us know what you think about it. --Kim

  1. I liked the book (disclosure: I know and like Alix a lot), but it'll be interesting to see how they work out a narrative through-line, since most of the short stories in the collection take place in their own space, and it's only in the last story that the funeral-crashing protagonist winds up running into nearly everyone else. Then again, maybe I've just answered my own question right there...
