Freestyle Releasing Acquires INAPPROPRIATE COMEDY, Starring Adrien Brody and Rob Schneider

Freestyle Releasing plans a North American theatrical release followed by a DVD/VOD release through Freestyle Digital Media for the new sketch comedy film INAPPROPRIATE COMEDY, directed by Vince Offer (of "ShamWow!" fame) and written by Offer, Ari Shaffir and Ken Pringle. The film is produced by Robert B. Shapiro ("The Last Time") and Ken Pringle for Square One Entertainment. Highland Film Group will handle international distribution.

INAPPROPRIATE COMEDY is a no-holds barred sketch movie starring Academy Award-winner Adrien Brody as "Flirty Harry," a tough, no nonsense cop with a soft middle and a flair for fashion; Rob Schneider in a dual role as both a sleazy, horny psychologist and a curmudgeonly porn critic alongside his enthusiastic counterpart Michelle Rodriguez; Lindsay Lohan living out her fantasy of taking an ultimate revenge on the salivating paparazzi who haunt her, and Ari Shaffir as "The Amazing Racist," whose hilariously offensive hidden-camera encounters with members of different ethnic and minority groups push everyone's buttons.

The deal was negotiated by Freestyle's Co-President Susan Jackson, Hal Sadoff, and attorneys Andrew Hurwitz and Alan Sacks of Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz.

Said Susan Jackson: "InAPPropriate Comedy totally delivers to the 'Jackass' and 'Borat' audience. We are also delighted to be working with director Vince Offer whose experience and following from his remarkable direct marketing successes will prove invaluable to the promotion of the film."

"InAPPropriate Comedy couldn't have found a better home than with the team at Freestyle Releasing, as they really understand risque comedies like this one. The potential of our partnership, both on this film and on future projects, is very exciting!" said Vince Offer.
