Catherine Keener and Paul Reubens in Accidental Love

Accidental Love

Shot in fits and starts in 2008 (between I Heart Huckabees and The Fighter), David O. Russell’s seemingly cursed health-care satire is finally seeing the light of day. You’d think that would be a cause for celebration, but the film’s so manic and toothless and unfunny it’s no wonder Russell took his name off it. (It was completed by others; the credited director is the fictional Stephen Greene.) Jessica Biel is an uninsured waitress who gets a nail lodged in her skull and takes her crusade to D.C., where James Marsden, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Catherine Keener do their best not to look mortified. The race for the worst film of 2015 is officially on. F
