"The Five Year Engagement" Premiere - Opening Night - 2012 Tribeca Film Festival

My last opening night at the Tribeca Film festival was a few years ago just after I sold my first screenplay, so it was nice to attend again and view Nicholas Stoller's enjoyable new movie.  Produced by the great Judd Apatow. "The Five Year Engagement" Premiere - Opening Night - 2012 Tribeca Film Festival. The 'Wedding Reception' afterwards at MOMA was a nice touch too.  Almost seemed like an SNL reunion.
