'Women in Trouble' trailer: Not your standard chick flick (see: porn star, call girls, and Josh Brolin)

Posted on

The trailer for Women in Trouble, the Sebastian Gutierrez comedy following one day in the intersecting lives of 10 women in Los Angeles that won some fans at the SXSW Film Festival, debuted on the Web last night. Because they’ve got to keep the trailer G-rated, you get a bit of a Boys on the Side vibe. Check out this clip of Carla Gugino‘s pregnant porn star Elektra Luxx telling Connie Britton‘s slightly horrified woman trapped in an elevator with her about her, um, merchandising, and you get a better idea of what you’re dealing with. Also watch the clip of Elektra and Holly, a call girl played by Britton’s Friday Night Lights‘ co-star Adrianne Palicki, explaining why it’s not a chick flick after the jump.

Regardless, I’m curious to see which one of the ladies I’ll relate to most — will it be good or bad if it’s the 13-year-old? — and it’s nice to see a film about women score quality men in supporting roles (Josh Brolin, Simon Baker, Joseph Gordon-Levitt). Intrigued? And guys, are you convinced this is not just a standard chick flick?
