HOLLYWOOD — As they were getting over Thursday’s “Get Over It” preem at the Festival Theater with an after-party at the Westwood Brewing Co., producer Paul Feldsher said the film was “like if Pedro Almodovar and Terry Gilliam collaborated on a teen comedy.” Co-star Martin Short described the pic as “Shakespeare meets ‘Grease.’ “
Star Kirsten Dunst was happy the pic wasn’t “crass” and she got to sing. Co-star Carmen Electra wasn’t happy her part as a whip-wielding dominatrix was sacrificed to secure a PG-13 rating (“I just give him a little flick. And I’m smiling.”)
And director Tommy O’Haver said the key to doing a teen comedy/musical is “to keep the emotions at the core real and let everything else be outrageous.”
Among those at the party’s core were Miramax’s Jeremy Kramer, Mark Gill and Jill Messick; stars Ben Foster, Mila Kunis, Shane West, Sisqo and Swoosie Kurtz; screenwriter Lee Fleming; plus guests Topher Grace, Mandy Moore, Billy Rose, Karl Austen, John Fogelman and Emile Gladstone.
