Netflix has released its official trailer for Good On Paper, a comedy premiering on June 23. Actor and comedian, Iliza Shlesinger, wrote the film, which is based on a (mostly) true story. Shlesinger is also starring in Good On Paper opposite Ryan Hansen, who plays her love interest. Margaret Cho, Matt McGorry, Beth Dover, and Rebecca Rittenhouse all appear in the movie as well. GLOW’s Kimmy Gatewood directed Good On Paper; she has also previously directed episodes for Girls5eva, The Baby-Sitters Club, and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.
Netflix’s trailer for Good on Paper begins with Cho’s character delivering a backhanded compliment to Shlesinger’s character, Andrea, about how she’s unmarried and hasn’t achieved all of her goals yet. Andrea then meets Dennis (Hansen) on a plane, where he reveals that he has a career involving hedge funds and that he went to Yale. After they start dating, Andrea begins to suspect Dennis isn’t actually the man he’s been presenting himself to be. Andrea and her friends devise a plan to force Dennis to confess his secrets, but things go awry as he ends up unconscious after drinking far too much. The entire trailer can be viewed below:
Shlesinger has had a long-running relationship with Netflix. Her first stand-up comedy special for the streaming service, Iliza Shlesinger: War Paint, premiered back in 2013, and since then, she has gone on to release four other comedy specials for Netflix. In addition to her specials, Shlesinger appeared on Netflix in the 2020 film, Spenser Confidential and in her own sketch comedy show, The Iliza Shlesinger Sketch show. Considering how often Shlesinger partners with Netflix, it’s only fitting that the streaming service will house her new film, Good On Paper, when it’s released this summer.
