EXCLUSIVE: Jennifer Prediger  & Jess Weixler’s  10 Things You Should Know About APARTMENT TROUBLES

APARTMENT TROUBLES (Gravitas Ventures)

APARTMENT TROUBLES is a story about how Olivia and Nicole are codependent roommates who are definitely going to make it; they're just not sure how. When they get evicted from their shoebox apartment in Manhattan--conceptual art just doesn't cover the rent--they boldly take off to L.A. for the promise of sunshine. As one door slams shut, another opens--a tarot card reading later, the duo decide to take their performance art sensibilities to the mainstream by auditioning for a reality TV talent show.

This madcap buddy film marks the screenwriting and directorial debuts of costars and real-life friends Jennifer Prediger (RED FLAG) and Jess Weixler (TEETH). Strong comedic performances by Megan Mullally (WILL & GRACE), Jeffrey Tambor (TRANSPARENT) and Will Forte (LAST MAN ON EARTH, SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE) reveal the vulnerability behind even their most bizarre behavior. APARTMENT TROUBLES (Gravitas Ventures) is available today!

Jennifer Prediger                                                       Jess Weixler



1. Jenny kisses Megan Mullally in this movie, and then Megan cries (in that order).

2. Jess kisses Jeffrey Tambor in this movie, and then yells at her (in that order).

3. No one gets to kiss Will Forte in this movie, but we sure tried every time the cameras stopped rolling.

4. Will Forte's mom, Patti Forte, the sweetest woman on earth who raised the 'Last Man on Earth' has a role in the movie. When Will's character is on the phone talking to his mom, he actually did talk to his mom, Patti, on the phone and called her a turkey.

5. We wear garbage couture that was handmade by our costume designer. If you watch this movie, you'll find many tips throughout on how to dress stylishly eccentric.

 



6. If you like the British cult film "Withnail and I" you may like this movie. If you haven't seen "Withnail and I", watch our movie first, then rent that one too and have yourself a madcap, buddy movie mini-marathon.
 

7. Lance Bass has a bitchy cameo in the movie. We realize we're doing a lot of name dropping on this list, but the last person we'll name drop here is Christopher Reid from Kid 'n Play who brings a little special something to the movie.

8. There's an inspiring, awkward speech given to actual strangers on the subway in NYC with a special performance by breakdancers we met and filmed on the train.

9. Jess eats an entire angel food cake in under 10 seconds.

10. Without insulting the rest of our cast, the cats in this movie gave incredibly captivating performances. Both cats are students of cinema and thus were named accordingly: Bobafet and Beetlejuice.
