While she might not use her medium as a soapbox the way Aaron Sorkin does, Diablo Cody certainly rivals Mr. Newsroom when it comes to writing dialogue and scenes that would never, ever, ever be replicated in the real world.
Here in Paradise, we’ve got a conveniently stereotypical Christian girl (played by Julianne Hough) who loses her faith and goes to Vegas to really live life (ugh x3), where she keeps company with Russell Crowe and a
demure white woman sassy black lady.
But it does have Nick Offerman, playing a dad, with a bald cap. I hope he’s hilarious, because if Diablo Cody (who wrote this, her directorial debut) squanders the talents of Mr. Offerman, I’ll flat-out murder her.
