Before I dive into this article I would like to state that the poster above is NOT OFFICIAL but fan-made by me to show my excitement for the film.

The film, "Behaving Badly", has acquired U.S. distribution rights from Vertical Entertainment. The film has gone through numerous titles such as "Parental Guidance Suggested" and "Feed the Dog" before settling on "Behaving Badly"

The film stars Nat Wolff, Selena Gomez, Mary-Louise Parker, Elisabeth Shue, Dylan McDermott, Jason Lee, Heather Graham, Cary Elwes, Gary Busey, and Patrick Warburton.

Wolff stars as Rick Stevens, who's willing to do whatever it takes to try and win the heart of Nina Pennington (Gomez) — even if this means making a bet with a mobster's son! No one ever said love was easy, so if he ever hopes to land the girl of his dreams, he'll also have to deal with a group of strippers, his best friend's horny mother (Shue), his drug-abusing boss (McDermott), a perverted principal (Warburton), a priest with a really bigsecret (Lee), a sultry defense attorney (Graham), and a patron saint who dispenses cryptic advice (Parker).

Garrick directed from a script he co-wrote with Scott Russell, based on Ric Browde's book “While I'm Dead… Feed The Dog.” The film was produced by Andrew Lazar and Miri Yoon, and executive produced by Barry Quart and Kevin Tang.

The deal was negotiated by Vertical's Peter Jarowey and Goldberg with Elisabeth Costa de Beauregard of Voltage Pictures and Kevin Iwashina and Zac Bright of Preferred Content on behalf of the filmmakers. “This film spoke to us on many levels and we are excited to show audiences how funny this cast can be together. It is a return to the classic comedies of the late 80's and early 90's as Tim Garrick and his team did a wonderful job capturing that fine line between endearing and off-the-wall,” said Vertical president Rich Goldberg.
