Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“A hilarious, heartfelt memoir.”
InStyle
 
“These essays on everything from her mom the (former) nun to her inability to ditch a mortifying vanity plate because her dad made (“*2B”) to her passion for her toothless bulldog rescue will make you wish Greer was your wacky best friend.”
People Magazine
 
“Intimate and frank . . .  And for fans of hers who do know why they know her, and who have been clamoring for the gifted character actress to get the starring role they’ve long felt she’s deserved, I Don’t Know What You Know Me From proves what they’ve always suspected: Judy Greer shines in the starring role. It really is just like gossiping—and, occasionally, kvetching—with a friend over a glass of wine.”
The Daily Beast
 
"The book is so funny it might make [Greer] a household name."
Ladies' Home Journal
 
"[Greer's] charming memoir is a series of vignettes covering her childhood in Michigan, her adventures in stepparenting, and her experiences on film and television sets. . . . [Her] bubbly best-friend personality and self-deprecating anecdotes will have readers rooting for her, and will likely win her new fans."
Booklist
 
"Greer is an engaging and witty storyteller, at turns wistful and unsparingly honest. . . . Readers will wish Greer was their conspiratorial best friend."
Kirkus
 
“Reading this book is like talking to Judy Greer herself, impossible to do without a smile on your face. Finally this perennial co-star gets to confound Hollywood’s expectations and take center stage in a role that’s every bit as hilarious, delightful, and brutally honest as the comedienne herself. It’s a role only one person was born to play: Sandra Bullock. (Although maybe Judy could be her friend or something?)”
—Mitch Hurwitz
 
 “Whether or not you ‘know what you know her from,’ chances are you have seen Judy Greer in a movie, at least once in your life, and wanted to be best friends with her. The good news is that her book is just as honest, witty, and observant as she actually is. From her early life and her experiences in love and friendship to the weird world of Hollywood, she candidly spills the beans and consistently entertains. So now is your chance—you too can be friends with Judy (sort of).”
—Rashida Jones
 
“If you’ve heard Judy speak even once you can hear her voice all through these wonderful stories, because she writes like she talks and what she says is so much fun to listen to. My only complaint was how much I missed her when the book was over—but that’s how I always feel after a long stay with a good friend.”
—Jim Parsons
 
“I read it in one sitting. Then I flushed.”
—Zach Galifianakis
 

Présentation de l'éditeur

You know Judy Greer, right? Maybe from The Wedding Planner, 13 Going on 30, Carrie, Arrested Development, or The Descendants. Yes, you totally recognize her. And, odds are, you already feel like she’s your friend. 

In her first book of essays, I Don’t Know What You Know Me From, Greer writes about everything you would hope to hear from your best friend: how a midnight shopping trip to Walgreens can cure all; what it’s like to wake up one day with stepchildren; and how she really feels about fans telling her that she’s prettier in person. Yes, it’s all here—from the hilarious moments to the 
intimate confessions.

But Judy Greer isn’t just a regular friend—she’s a celebrity friend. Want to know which celebs she’s peed next to? Or what the Academy Awards are actually like? Or which hot actor gave her father a Harley-Davidson? Don’t worry; Greer reveals all of that, too. You’ll love her because, besides being laugh-out-loud funny, she makes us genuinely feel like she’s one of us. Because even though she sometimes has a stylist and a makeup artist, she still wears (and hates!) Spanx. Because even after almost twenty years in Hollywood, she still hasn’t figured everything out—except that you should always wash your face before bed. Always.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Light but entertaining look at one woman's road in Hollywood 20 mars 2014
Par A. Reid - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
I know Greer from quite a lot, and there's a pretty good chance you do, too - she's been appearing in television and films since at least 1997 and in the past 10 years has been in some big ones. She always stands out to me (in a good way), so I was quite pleased to have a chance to read and review her memoir. I like memoirs; I like Greer - good combination.

Memoirs, of course, come in varying types. There are the earth-changing ones that talk about Really Important Stuff, where people reveal the highly dramatic and often tragic experiences they've lived and leave you inspired (or maybe even just really happy to be alive). There are the high-level observational memoirs where people launch sharp and witty critical commentary on some or many aspects of life, that provoke you to think about things in a new light and perhaps even leave you a better person.

And then there's this. This is not and does not pretend to be "important" - it's a segmented look back at the life of an ordinary (if talented) woman who is working in an interesting industry. She doesn't seem to be aiming for Universal Truth, but seems candid in discussing her own situation. She comes off as warm, witty, self-deprecating, and, to me, genuine. If you're interested in reading about life in the industry (and the road to it) from the perspective of a firmly established and steadily employed insider, this may be the book for you. if you're looking for Really Important Stuff, cynical bon mots, or even a ton of celebrity gossip, it really isn't.

As for me, I enjoyed.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Kind of like a wine-fueled chat with your goofiest friend 28 mars 2014
Par Maine Colonial - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
I've always had a thing for co-stars and character actors, from screwball comedy greats like Edward Everett Horton, Eugene Pallette, Eric Blore and Thelma Ritter, to voices and faces you see everywhere in today's movies and TV, like Christopher Waltz, Brian Goodman (who seems to specialize in cops), Jayne Brook (look her up on imdb.com; she's great!)---and Judy Greer.

I've liked Judy Greer for years, since Arrested Development and 13 Going on 30, and today I love her scene-stealing voice work as the crazed sado-masochistic heiress/secretary/country singer Cheryl/Cherlene in the FX network's animated espionage comedy, Archer. So I figured: Why not read her book and find out more about her? Sure, the book is no cure for cancer and you might wonder why anybody would care to read the "confessions of a co-star," as she subtitles the book, but I was curious.

It turns out, Judy knows how to write a breezily entertaining memoir. Well, memoir in the sense that Tina Fey's Bossypants is a memoir. It's really a collection of entertaining stories about her childhood, breaking into show business and current life and career. She's from suburban Detroit and has that low-key, self-deprecating humor you often see in midwesterners--only a little edgier, a little goofier.

She writes as if she's talking to you on the phone. She rambles a little, she jumps from one topic to another; it's not very polished feeling, and there isn't anything deep or particularly meaningful here. And yet, it's an enjoyable way to pass some time. Her reminiscences about her childhood and her stories about her rescued, flatulent bulldog, Buckley (whom she describes as constantly judging her), are often laugh-out-loud funny.

When Judy talks about her career and her husband and stepchildren, she pulls back, though. Those stories are only slight-smile amusing, and I have a theory about that. She writes a couple of times about good advice she's received over the years, and one is her (former nun!) mother's sage advice (just like Cher's mom's in Moonstruck): "Don't [take a dump] where you eat." I suspect Judy didn't want to be too real about show business or her marriage and stepchildren, since she has to live and work in those worlds every day. Smart move, but it makes those portions of the book just a little deflated when compared to the inspired loopiness of the chapters about Buckley and her life before Los Angeles.

All in all, though, it's an entertaining read and makes me think that next time Judy Greer is between jobs she should start writing a comic novel.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Cute and Amusing, But Is It Worth Buying...? 5 avril 2014
Par Daniel V. Reilly - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
Judy Greer is one of those Hollywood faces that you see in a movie or TV show, and immediately think "Who is that girl..? She's in EVERYTHING...." She's been in more TV shows, movies, and commercials than even she can remember. Personally, I've always thought she was cute, so when I saw she had a book out, I figured "Why not?"

I was expecting more of a humorous autobiography, but I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU KNOW ME FROM *CONFESSIONS OF A CO-STAR is attempting to follow in the successful footsteps of Tina Fey and Chelsea Handler, and it's comprised of short "Essays" that cover various subjects and eras from Judy's life and career.

I'm not sure what the finished product will look like, since I have two separate advance review copies, a paperback and a digital edition, and the chapters are in slightly different order, so the book still seems to be in flux. The early chapters are a fairly linear timeline of Judy's life, but after that things get slightly choppy as the essays jump around, so you don't get a real feel for when the events she's describing are happening.

Judy seems to be a nice girl, so don't expect a lot (Read: any) dirt about co-stars or jobs that she's had. The question that you need to ask yourself in regards to buying this book, or ANY book that's comprised of the wit and wisdom of fill-in-the-blank, is this: Does this person have anything to say that I need to know, or anything to say that is amusing enough that I need to spend twenty bucks on it? In this case, the answer is no. I found Judy's stories to be cute and fun, and I laughed a few times, but I was also really looking forward to the book ending, because it was not really anything that I needed to read.

I also found it endlessly amusing when I read about how she worries about feeding her family healthy food, yet she smokes. I'm also easily annoyed, so I found it weird at first how she continually refers to her husband as "Dean Johnsen" over and over again. Then it stopped being weird and started to annoy me. I was also annoyed by her constant reference to "Dean Johnsen's" kids as her "stepkids"...I get it. They're NOT YOURS, I get it, I get it. I'm a stepfather myself, and this sentence is the first time I've ever used "Step" in regards to my relationship with my daughter. Yeah, she was here before I met my wife, but I consider her to be my kid, and I would never say otherwise. That's just a pet peeve of mine. Like I said, I'm easily annoyed.

I had a decent time reading this book, but I honestly couldn't say that anyone needs to spend money on it.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 I Don't Know Why Judy Greer Expects Anyone to Care About This Book 19 avril 2014
Par Mr. Bey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
I, like many, enjoy Greer's work on Arrested Development. This book appeared to be self aware of Greer's questionable celebrity status and I hoped that it would be filled with fun information/insights into a type of Hollywood personality that isn't talked about all that much. Alas, it is not.

Fairly early on in the book, Greer admits that she is writing this in her bed. As I continued reading on, that thought encapsulated the main problem of this book. Greer is writing fluff from a nice cozy setting and the result is something that few outside her family, friends, or most devoted twitter followers would care about. I do not follow her on twitter and don't plan to after reading this.

This book's witticisms are few and far between. That's likely the result of Greer writing this while half asleep with Grey's Anatomy or The Amazing Race playing in the background. The fluff seeped out of her pillow and into this book. What's missing is anything that reader might care about. That's a common problem with celebrity memoirs and one that someone who isn't much of a celebrity might have thought about.

This is the kind of book that comedians do best, even the one's who are far more famous than Judy Greer. Her life isn't really interesting and she doesn't do anything to compensate for that. As a result, the book is something you can read in about 3 hours without missing a beat as there's no beat to miss. This book is like a Carl Weather's stew. Bits of leftovers without any substance or flavor with some broth and a potato. If I had paid for this, I think I'd like my money back.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great celebrity memoir.... 14 avril 2014
Par Scott Herzig - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I purchased this book before a long coast to coast flight the other day. After a long week of work I wanted nothing more than an insightful and intriguing easy read, filled with exciting celebrity tales, insights and Hollywood anecdotes. However, what I got with this book was a perceptive, fascinating and extremely funny view of what it’s like to be Judy Greer, one of the most recognizable “second bananas” in Hollywood. This book flows well and it turned out to be a great way to spend 6 hours in the air. A definite “two thumbs up!”
