You can take Peter Bogdanovich out of the ’70s, but maybe you can’t take the ’70s out of Bogdanovich. This broad bedroom farce was written decades ago and shows it. What’s Up Doc? was a funny flick, but do we really need another?
A noted director (Owen Wilson) practices the hobby of rescuing call girls by giving them a sack of cash with which to pursue their dreams. His latest “conquest” is a New Yawk-accented Imogen Poots.
