In the trailer for Addicted To Fresno, we see that you can go home again, but you might have to cop to being a sex addict. Judy Greer stars as Shannon, who moves in with her sister Martha (Natasha Lyonne) after leaving a teaching job in disgrace. They also become co-workers when Martha gets Shannon a job as a hotel maid, a decision that she quickly regrets after witnessing her sister’s shoddy work ethic.
Things go from bad to gross when Shannon accidentally kills a hotel guest during sex. Then, while trying to dispose of the body, the sisters get blackmailed for $25,000 by pet cemetery owners played by Fred Armisen and Fargo’s Allison Tolman. So sex-toy stores will be robbed, a cart of dildos will get pushed around, and the myth of the nonexistent sex addict will be dispelled.
The dark comedy, directed by Jamie Babbit (But I’m A Cheerleader), is stocked with quirky indie actors: Kumail Nanjiani appears in a Sex Addicts Anonymous meeting, Clea Duvall is a robbery victim, and Aubrey Plaza rolls her eyes and looks exasperated.
Addicted To Fresno will be available on demand beginning September 1, and hits theaters on October 2.
