Trust Me is not the perfect comedy-drama and probably could’ve used a couple rewrites but as a follow-up to his 2008 film, Choke, it’s not bad and he assembles (no pun intended) a fine set of actors and an at least engaging story. The DVD released by Anchor Bay sadly is basic with no features while the audio/video transfers are merely adequate.

PLOT SYNOPSIS

Howard Holloway (CLARK GREGG) is a down-on-his luck agent for child actors and truly one the last good guys left in Hollywood. After discovering a 13-year-old acting prodigy (SAXON SHARBINO), he is poised to close the deal of a lifetime which would catapult his tween client and, at long last, himself, into the big time. With the support of his gorgeous new neighbor (AMANDA PEET), he must wrangle the actress’ volatile, overprotective father (PAUL SPARKS), dodge a scheming producer (FELICITY HUFFMAN), and outwit his uber-slick nemesis (SAM ROCKWELL). As he arrives on the brink of the Hollywood dream that’s eluded him for a lifetime, he begins to sense that his innocent young starlet may not be quite what she seems.

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5

Unfortunately no features were included.

VIDEO – 3.5/5 | AUDIO – 3.75/5

The movie is presented with an anamorphic widescreen (2.35 aspect ratio) and looks alright while the Dolby Digital 5.1 is relatively standard though does provide for clear dialogue levels and minor depth for the score/soundtrack.


OVERALL – 3.0/5

Overall, Trust Me is not the perfect comedy-drama and probably could’ve used a couple rewrites but as a follow-up to his 2008 film, Choke, it’s not bad and he assembles (no pun intended) a fine set of actors and an at least engaging story. The DVD released by Anchor Bay sadly is basic with no features (would’ve liked to have heard from Gregg) while the audio/video transfers are merely adequate.
