DELIGHTFUL NEW COMEDIES: AUSTRALIAN THE NAKED WANDERER WITH ANGUS MCLAREN AND JOHN CLEESE, ODE TO JOY WITH MARTIN FREEMAN, MORENA BACCARIN

'THE NAKED WANDERER'
ANGUS MCLAREN IS NAKED!
Two delightfully fun projects for you today! You already know that your trusted spy absolutely adores Australian films and their stars (this nekkid cutie from the poster is one of them) and I'm more than happy that another
Angus will wander naked sometime this year!
adorable comedy is coming from Down Under!
THE NAKED WANDERER will hit cinemas sometime this year starring irresistible Angus McLaren as Jake who, devastated when girlfriend Jasmine turns down his proposal to marry, walks all but naked up the Indian Ocean coast for charity. He is driven by media scoundrel Brian King's (John Cleese) 200k incentive to complete the walk and an ulterior motive to prove his worth to Jasmine. The walk makes Jake a celebrity, which appeals to Jasmine, but it's too late. Jake has fallen for mesmerizing backpacker Valerie. A spiteful Jasmine flies in and declares she will marry Jake after all. Jake turns Jasmine down but then Valerie vanishes.



'ODE TO JOY' TRAILER WITH
NARCOLEPTIC MARTIN FREEMAN
Ode to Joy starts next month!
Meanwhile, over in USA, August 9th is bringing us new romantic comedy ODE TO JOY in which Martin Freeman plays Charlie who suffers from cataplexy, a symptom of narcolepsy that causes sudden bouts of paralysis whenever he experiences strong emotions - in particular, joy. He develops a variety of techniques to deny himself too much pleasure and happiness, but they're put to the ultimate test when he falls in love. Morena Baccarin plays the love interest, with Jane Curtin, Jake Lacy and Melissa Rauch also in the cast of the Jason Winer (Modern Family, Life in Pieces) directed movie.

  1. The 'Naked Wanderer' sounds highly embarassing.The naked guy's place is in a nudist camp.
    As for 'Ode To Joy', even if it has a happy ending, I doubt it whether I can enjoy a movie based on the protagonist's getting paralysis whenever he experiences joy. ,

    1. Why would nakedness be embarrassing? :)
      I'm guessing the second one is about learning to live and cope with uncureable strange conditions, which is inspiring in its own way.

  2. I've just remembered something. I've got somewhere a picture of Angela Merkel, the kanzlerin, as a student at the nudist camp Costinesti, Romania. Not bad at all...
    In a nudist camp - that's OK.

    1. She isn't in good health, have you seen her constantly shaking in recent months? There are so many videos of her shaking uncontrollably during meetings and public appearances.

  3. The Naked Wanderer sounds like a recurring nightmare I have :P It does look quite comical though, and like you, I love the Aussie movies!

    Ode to Joy looks really good too. Two great features here today, Dezzy!
