Best Sellers

10/2/21 – Lucy Standbridge (Aubrey Plaza) has inherited her father’s publishing house, and the ambitious would-be editor has nearly sunk it with failing titles. She discovers she is owed a book by Harris Shaw (Michael Caine), a reclusive, cantankerous, booze-addled author who originally put the company on the map decades earlier. In a last-ditch effort to save the company, Lucy and Harris release his new book and embark on a book tour from hell that changes them both in ways they didn’t expect.

Q-tips say: We enjoyed it. Many funny/laughable moments. You can easily see why Michael Caine wanted to play alcoholic, cantankerous novelist Harris Shaw in Lina Roessler’s comedy. Constantly exclaiming “Bullshite!”

Mrs. Q says: See it. I didn’t feel this was time lost watching this movie and enjoyed Michael Caine’s latest performance. So see it, or perhaps after seeing “Best Sellers” you might just say: “Bullshite!”
