Since Sofia Coppola’s movies are always about her rich celebrity friends even when they ostensibly “aren’t,” it seems like a decent use of her talents to actually put her famous friends in front of the camera, and riff on everyone’s second-favorite scene in Lost in Translation, namely Bill Murray singing karaoke (Murray singing is also the best thing about the Garfield movie, which I tell you now because you will likely never watch it).
And yeah, Michael Cera used to be funny as the sweet nerdy guy, then he overplayed it; he seems to have evolved into being funny as an asshole, and I for one am down with the transition.
Who knows? Maybe this will become everybody’s second-favorite Bill Murray Christmas movie.
