The Overnight Movie

It makes perfect sense when Adam Scott admits that he grew up watching Steve Martin and Albert Brooks. The star of “The Overnight,” now in theaters, and “Parks and Recreation” has a similar, deadpan, intellectual comedy style. In his latest, he plays half of a couple (with Taylor Schilling) who has a life-changing night with a new pair of friends (Jason Schwartzman and Judith Godreche) that includes a surprising amount of bad behavior and male nudity. Patrick Brice’s comedy has earned raves since it premiered at Sundance and is expanding around the country over the next few weeks. Scott was recently in Chicago, and, as it so often does after the publicist introduces me and says RogerEbert.com, the conversation opened with a discussion of the legend himself and what he meant to Scott,

Adam Scott says: I’ve always been a sort of movie nerd of sorts because it’s all I ever thought about or cared about as a kid growing up. So I would read Roger Ebert’s books. Every year they would put out the compilation. I remember his review of “Dead Poets Society” really changed the way I thought about movies.
