Trailer: Twilight's Peter Facinelli is a Pickpocket with Panache in Loosies
Peter Facinelli, the elder Twilight statesman at age 37, wrote, produced, and stars in the new movie Loosies, the story of a tricky pickpocket who discovers that his ex-girlfriend (Jaimie Alexander) is pregnant just as he finds himself on the lam. It costars Michael Madsen and Vincent Gallo, which should make you jolt an eyebrow. Let's see if Facinelli can make thievery look cool in the movie's new trailer.
Catch Me if You Can-type protagonists are inherently fascinating, but the supporting cast is bothering me most here. While Facinelli seems committed to the caper craziness, Jaimie Alexander seems (so far) pretty uninspired as his annoyed paramour. In fact, her storyline seems pretty uninspired. I'll watch for the Lance Burton-style pocketbook disappearances, but I'm leery of the less-then-magical comedic elements here.
But: Vincent Gallo!
Verdict: Sticky fingers and shticky zingers.
