Rushmore meets Fight Club: Lots of Youths, Just a Little Revolt at Montalban Screening
Nicole Campos

Snatching up the free popcorn, candy, Red Bull and other provisions before the show, the audience crowded into the Montalban as the doors opened, broke into peals of laughter as the film rolled and pretty much never let up. Arteta's comedy also boasts a cast to die for (Buscemi! Liotta! Long! Smart! Galifianakis!) and killer soundtrack heavy on mid-century French pop, a theme which loomed large at the afterparty in the theater's upstairs mezzanine with Paris Loves L.A., featuring Gallic songstress Adele Jacques (who also features on the soundtrack) churning out a delicious set heavy on Serge Gainsbourg covers. Also delicious were the signature cocktails supplied by Belvedere Vodka; delicious in a whole different, dangerous way. A filmgoer apparently so inspired to misbehave by Cera's alter-ego character, Francois Dillinger, climbed right out the window onto the second-floor ledge above Vine Street to grab a smoke. Security pulled him in and whisked him out so fast, we didn't even get a chance to cheer.

Oh no you don't, rebel smoker!
