RULES DON’T APPLY – Rated PG-13 – 2 hrs. 6 mins.

Starring Warren Beatty, Alden Ehrenreich, Lilly Collins, Annette Bening, Matthew Broderick, Candice Bergen, and many, many more!

Writer/Actor/Producer and Director Warren Beatty has joined forces with acclaimed screenwriter Bo Goldman to bring to life a fictional tale filled with the life and times of the great Howard Hughes, and all the glamour, the spectacle and the couch coaching ways of 1950’s Hollywood…this is RULES DON’T APPLY!

Driving for one of Hollywood’s ultimate playboys, Mr. Howard Hughes (Warren Beatty), we meet the god fearing, and engaged Frank Forbes (Alden Ehrenreich).

Caught off guard by the new-to-Hollywood cutie Marla Mabrey (Lilly Collins), who is trying to be one of Hughes contract actresses, Frank is finding it hard to abide by the rules of engagement, and Mr. Hughes rules of never romping with any of his girlies.

As Frank sets off to travel the world as one of Mr. Hughes right-hand guys, Marla is torn between her love for Frank, and the advances of a more distinguished and powerful older man.

While Frank and Marla struggle with all the pressures of Hollywood, and their new found careers, they find out that not too much in life is actually as it appears, especially when your mixed up living in the crazy world of Mr. Howard Hughes.

I give RULES DON’T APPLY a rating of MUST SEE ON THE BIG SCREEN~ This film was everything I was hoping it would be, and so much more! From the ambiance and glamour of 1950’s Hollywood, to the apropos storyline of Beatty playing his predecessor playboy in Hollywood, Mr. Howard Hughes, this film is absolutely perfect in each and every way! I had to snicker at the fact that Beatty wrote himself into this particular role when I read the synopsis, but once he appeared on screen as the dashing and debonair Hughes, I was totally sold, hook, line and sinker! Ehrenreich and Collins are perfectly cast too, along with all the other key roles that are filled by incredible stars from that we know, and love. I so hope that come awards season there are lots of them coming by way of this film, as its cast, its storyline, its music, even its’ Directing are truly superb. There is only one other film this year that stole my heart just a little bit more, so make sure to hit a theater near you this weekend to catch RULES DON’T APPLY, as this film is a definite MUST SEE and there is no other way to do it, than ON THE BIG SCREEN!
