Stars: Jess Weixler, Jesse Eisenberg, Jason Ritter, Halley Feiffer, Tippi Hedren
Kudos to Jesse Eisenberg for not selling out after receiving his Oscar nomination, for 2010’s The Social Network. Keeping his independent spirit alive and well, the young actor brings his signature brand of endearing awkwardness to Free Samples, a quirky sounding comedy that, no offense to Eisenberg, appears to be a prime vehicle for an actress we unfortunately haven’t seen enough since 2007’s killer vagina horror-comedy Teeth: Jess Weixler.
The talented beauty, who’s been the definition of independent permanence, plays a sassy, ball-busting chick who takes over a friend’s ice cream truck for the day, doling out free dessert samples to an assortment of weirdos, one of whom comes in the form of Eisenberg. If nothing else, Free Samples should provide a satisfying dose of our girl Weixler, which, as we said before, doesn’t happen often enough. Hell, if Greta Gerwig can transition into mainstream fare (meaning, she’s able to show the Megan Fox’s of the game how acting is done), why not Ms. Teeth, too?
