Meg Ryan has officially entered The First Wives Club chapter of her career. One year after starring as a spurned wife in the disappointing remake of The Women, she’s the lead in Serious Moonlight, opposite Timothy Hutton, Kristen Bell, and Justin Long. Hutton plays her cheating husband, and when she discovers his affair with Bell, she ties him to the toilet until he falls back in love with her.
The film, due in December, is equally notable for its writer and director. The late Adrienne Shelly (Waitress) penned the script, and Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s Cheryl Hines receives her first directing credit.
Did the trailer give you hope or merely make you nostalgic for Ryan’s cuddlier work? Compare and contrast Ryan and Sandra Bullock’s recent career moves and try to explain why one has thrived and one hasn’t. Go.
