By the time this crisis we’re in is over, we all may be in need of a therapy session. Just try to find better help than Alicia Silverstone and Rob Corddry get in the upcoming comedy, Bad Therapy.
Silverstone and Corddry play a married couple in need of a little marriage counseling, and turn to therapist Judy Small (Michaela Watkins, last seen in The Way Back) for help. Turns out, Judy could use a mental health day herself, and uses her powers of persuasion to push the spouses apart.
The cast includes Anna Pniowsky, Haley Joel Osment, and David Paymer, with Bill Teitler directing.
SYNOPSIS: Married couple Bob and Susan Howard (Rob Corddry & Alicia Silverstone) decide to see a marriage counselor named Judy Small (Michaela Watkins), who recently relocated close to their home in Los Angeles. When Bob and Susan first meet Judy, she appears competent, intelligent, and trustworthy, with a track record of other couples that she’s treated successfully without incident. But Bob and Susan’s particular emotional dynamic is a trigger for Judy’s dark and conflicted impulses. Suggesting that she see them separately, Judy subtly puts them at odds with one another and brings their marriage to the breaking point in a comically escalating series of manipulations.
Bad Therapy will hit digital platforms on April 17th.
