Directed By – Peter Glanz
Screenplay By – Peter Glanz
Cinematography By – Ben Kutchins
Starring Jason Bateman, Olivia Wilde & Billy Crudup
The Longest Week isn’t anything all that special but as always Bateman can carry a film, especially this time with Olivia Wilde and Billy Crudup backing him up. The Longest Week’s biggest problem is that it wants to satirize Bateman’s spoiled, extremely rich-parent dependent character Conrad, but is ultimately too sympathetic towards him. This keeps the film from truly being a satire but also ends up with a character that is fairly flat.
The Longest Week is a fine time filler with a highly watchable cast.
