Henry Jaglom’s Collection, Vol. 2: The Comedies will explore just how humorous real life can be, all the while never losing focus on what it means to live and love. Included in the box set are:
Sitting Ducks – Two small-time thieves (Michael Emil & Zack Norman) come together as a bizarre comic duo in a quest to make their childhood dreams come tue. In a limousine stuffed with cash stolen from the mob, they take off for Miami, where they plan to fly to a safe haven in Costa Rica. Along the way, they pick up two female passengers and the fun begins!
Can She Bake a Cherry Pie? – Zee (Golden Globe winner Karen Black) is walking up and down Manhattan streets, talking to herself and to the husband who just left her. At a sidewalk café she runs into Eli (Michael Emil). A very unlikely, funny, and touching relationship develops between two lost souls in the big city, a character of its own accord. Frances Fisher (Titanic) and Michael Margotta costar.
New Year’s Day – Henry Jaglom plays Drew, a frazzled, recently divorced Californian who moves to New York on New Year’s Eve, only to discover that his apartment is still occupied by its previous tenants – three young women – one of whom, Lucy (Maggie Wheeler, “Friends”) is in the midst of a romantic crisis of her own with Billy (David Duchovny, “Californication”). For all concerned, in fact, it turns out to be time to move on.
