Tribeca Warms to Somebody Up There Likes Me
North American rights to the deadpan comedy have been picked up by Tribeca Film, the distribution label of Robert DeNiro's Tribeca Enterprises. Starring Keith Poulson, Nick Offerman, and Jess Weixler, the film centers on Max (Poulson), his best friend Sal (Offerman Parks & Recreation) and the woman they both adore, Lyla (Weixler, Teeth) who stumble through thirty-five years of seemingly mandatory but unfulfilling entanglements. The film features an original score from Vampire Weekend’s Chris Baio. Tribeca Film plans a theatrical Spring 2013 release day and video-on-demand offerings, as well as iTunes, Amazon Watch Instantly, VUDU, Xbox and Samsung Media Hub following a U.S. and Canadian film festival estival run.

    I am a big fan of Kstew and Rob, it would be nice Robsten can move on, from the scandal, but Rob needs to come to grip with her mistakes and realized she made a terrible mistakes....... if he can't, let kris go and so that she can learn from this and grow from all this messy situation.......... The Media won't leave her alone and magazine will keep reminding her of momentary indiscretion ..........As for the Pattinson family, you ever heard of forgiveness, Yeah whatever, you have moral, I understand the humiliation and based it on once a cheater, who will cheat again.......Not everybody is perfect, and I think Kristen has been through enough and deserve a break from that crap. it is not fair that you publicly take swipe and name calling,,,,, you think that you know kristen personally. But you didn't take time to know her for real, and if you didn't like how she treats Rob. Ever heard of communicating and let her know gently, she doesn't have sisters that she could learn from....... I don't think you do, ,But she will developed into a stronger woman and make better choices in the near future..... One thing for real, she does love Rob very much. But finds it hard to let go, because she feels so guilty and upset at what she has done...If she could change time, and said to Sanders, Get lost.... yeah she would....but it happened and she can't change that....Instead she needs to move forward, ........Maybe in a couple of years, Rob and Kristen still feel the same way and the chemistry is still so strong.... YEAH WHY NOT??? They have change into better people........ but right now, they need to build their careers and date other people, for now.... just be close friends.....
