Steve Blair, a Baltimore-born filmmaker (actor, writer, producer), whose first try at both writing and directing is titled I DO & I DON'T.
Bmore Pictures, a nice moniker that doubles as a nickname for Baltimore and an exhortation to "do better." (Baltimore, in fact, is given the largest credit of anything in the end-credit sequence!) His work as a writer on I Do & I Don't is adequate, but his directorial skills could use some honing. He places the camera generally front and center and lets his cast -- a good one -- do its job. Only once in the movie does the camerawork rise above the prosaic: a very funny angle of the bride-to-be spreading her legs and relaxing in her wedding dress, flanked by her "mentor" and her "dresser."
Bryan Callen (above, left: mostly from TV and cable) and Alexie Gilmore (above, right: World's Greatest Dad, Mercy) plays the about-to-be newlyweds, and they're both as good as the script and direction allow, while Jane Lynch (shown below, right, from Glee and other TV) and the fine character actor Matt Servito (shown at left, below) nail the older couple.
moving and very surprising -- the best film about entering into modern marriage that I have yet seen. I hope Mr. Blair gets to see Casomai someday. Meanwhile, his movie makes its DVD debut next Tuesday, July 20, via Phase 4 Films, available for sale or rental.
