Playing It Cool :- Watch Playing It Cool on YoutubeonFire, Chris Evans is an attractive guy. I don’t mean physically, obviously, as he’s not much to look at, but he has a seemingly effortless charisma about him that that makes for an appealing persona. He has a fun sense of humor, a disarming smile and an unassuming attitude that seems at odds with his potentially imposing physique — and his best roles see him putting these traits to repeated use. Think Captain America, The Losers, Not Another Teen Movie — these films embrace his casual charisma and channel it towards memorable performances that serve to elevate the rest of the film. Playing It Cool attempts to do the same — Evans is having a good time here — and the film even ups the ante by filling the supporting cast with other highly likable performers including Michelle Monaghan, Martin Starr, Aubrey Plaza, Anthony Mackie (Avengers reunion!), Patrick Warburton, Philip Baker Hall, Luke Wilson and Topher Grace. Pretty quickly though it becomes clear that for everything director Justin Reardon‘s film gets right in front of the camera it just isn’t enough to overcome the screenplay. Evans plays an unnamed Hollywood screenwriter — he’s listed as Narrator in the credits — whose agent (Mackie) has landed him a gig writing a romantic comedy, and if all goes well he’ll be hired to script an action movie set in Malaysia. Unfortunately for him, and I would assume the studio that hired him, his lack of experience with love has made him uninterested and unable to write about it.
