Movies starring Jason Schwartzman

Sort by:
Overnight, The

The Overnight plays like the pilot of a sitcom developed for Netflix or premium cable. A hit-and-miss affair that deals in a sporadically amusing fashion with many of the mundane (and a few not-so-mundane) tribulations of long-term monogamy in marria...

Big Eyes

Tim Burton's name is on the credits but Big Eyes doesn't feel at all like the visually eccentric, gothic-tinged productions we normally expect from the offbeat director. Oh, there are some "Burton-esque" moments, like a vacation in ...

Saving Mr. Banks

For an author of long-form fiction, the writing process isn't merely technical. As absurd as it might seem, the writer bonds with his or her characters to the point where they can become as "real" as any flesh-and-blood person. This is especially t...

Director: John Lee Hancock

Moonrise Kingdom

Few working directors are as consistently, dependably quirky as Wes Anderson, whose films tend to excite art house audiences while being ignored and bypassed by mainstream movie-goers. His latest, Moonrise Kingdom, represents one of his best, in la...

Director: Wes Anderson
Cast: Jared Gilman, Harvey Keitel, Jason Schwartzman, ...
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

It does not follow that a parody has to be funny but, in the case of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, the humor is there. A clever send-up of comic book and video games (circa 1990), this movie illustrates that writer/director Edgar Wright can rise to...

Fantastic Mr. Fox

While it might be a stretch to claim that Fantastic Mr. Fox is "fantastic," it's easily among the year's best animated features. If there's an argument against the film (and, admittedly, it's not much of an argument), it's that the movie may not b...

Genre: ANIMATED
Director: Wes Anderson
Cast: (voices) George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, ...
Funny People

It's written and directed by Judd Apatow and stars Adam Sandler and Seth Rogan, so it must be funny, right? The problem with expectations is that they can lead to disappointment. That's not to say Funny People is devoid of humor - in fact, there ...

I Heart Huckabees

After seeing two previews for David O. Russell's I Heart Huckabees, I had no idea what it was about. Now, having seen the movie, I still feel like I'm on the outside looking in. I certainly realize why the preview is so obtuse. There's no way that tw...

Genre: COMEDY
Director: David O. Russell
Cast: Jason Schwartzman, Mark Wahlberg, Naomi Watts, ...
Darjeeling Limited, The

My reaction to The Darjeeling Limited is much the same as for most of Wes Anderson's previous efforts: it's an easy movie to admire but more difficult to like. Technically and thematically, there's a lot in The Darjeeling Limited to arrest the atte...

Run Time: 1:32
U.S. Release Date: 2007-10-12
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Situations)
Genre: DRAMA/COMEDY
Director: Wes Anderson
Cast: Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, Jason Schwartzman, ...
Rushmore

Rushmore is one of those films that's so inconsequential that its memory threatens to fade away before the end credits have finished rolling. The movie, co-written and directed by Bottle Rocket's Wes Anderson, is meant to be an offbeat comedy/dram...
