Why should James Bond get all the fun? This one-shot focuses on one of the British agent’s most famous supporting characters: Miss Moneypenny.

i-do-until-i-dont-posterDolly Wells stars as a documentary filmmaker with a personal vendetta against marriage who sets out to prove that the concept no longer works in a modern world. In order to prove her thesis that matrimony should only last for seven years (with an option to renew), the filmmaker sets her sights on three unhappy Florida couples: a pair of senior citizens (Paul Reiser and Mary Steenburgen), a middle-aged couple (Lake Bell and Ed Helms) struggling with money and starting a family, and pair of free-love hippies (Wyatt Cenac and Amber Heard).

Writer, director, and star Lake Bell may have won me over with 2013’s In a World…, but her latest is severely lacking in charm (while sadly having no lack of cliche to fall back on).

The death of Ben Reilly‘s patient marks the end of Kaine‘s patience. However, before pitting the two Scarlet Spiders against each other once more, the comic introduces a wild card in Marlo Chandler-Jones who seems to have an unusual effect on both Ben and Kaine. Inspiring Ben to go after a pair of thugs shooting up Las Vegas, the Scarlet Spider jumps into action (although he does have to be talked out of gunning down the villains in the middle of the street by one of their would-be victims).

Despite his attempts to keep her out of his latest expedition, Alex (Ophelia Lovibond) shows up in Cambodia to help Hooten (Michael Landes) hunt for the Cintamani jewel. With the help of a local kid (Jay Heyman), Hooten has been able to find most of the relics needed, although he’ll need Alex’s help to get past some drug runners and decipher the clues leading to the jewel’s location. The trouble is that they aren’t the only ones on the hunt. Hooten’s old partner Kane (Vincent Regan) is also searching for the prize.
