The Stand In
2020, R, 101 min. Directed by Jamie Babbit. Starring Drew Barrymore, Michael Zegen, T.J. Miller, Holland Taylor, Michelle Buteau.
Not reviewed at press time. A Hollywood proxy gets their unexpected day in the spotlight when America’s former sweetheart Candy (Barrymore) sends her double (Barrymore, pulling two shifts) to rehab in her place, and it turns out the stand-in is better at being a star than she ever was.
