We told you several months ago that principal photography was underway for this new dark romantic comedy starring Guiding Light’s Tom Pelphrey and One Life to Live’s Melissa Archer!  Well, now the film has been completed and is ready to hit some movie theatres nationwide on October 12!

The film titled, Excuse Me For Living features Pelphrey in the leading role of Daniel Topler, who is brilliant and debonair, but drug-addicted and who is saved from a suicide attempt.   In court, the judge entrusts the wisecracking young man to the care of Dr. Bernstein, an elderly psychiatrist at an upscale rehab clinic.  The doctor issues these commands: obey the no-drugs rules, and join the geriatric temple men’s group he leads – or face incarceration.  Dan meets Bernstein’s luscious daughter, Laura (Melissa Archer).  But the psychiatrist forbids them to meet again.  The thread of Dan’s struggle to seek self-redemption, capture Laura’s love,  and Bernstein’s approval weaves to the story’s surprise conclusion.

Excuse Me For Living, also features Christopher Lloyd, Wayne Knight, Jerry Stiller, Robert Vaughn, James McCaffrey, and soap favorites: Ewa De Cruz, Tonja Walker, Shenaz Treasury and David A. Gregory! Excuse Me For Living was written, directed, and produced by Ric Klass!  For more information on cities and locations on where you can see Excuse Me For Living click here!

I heard that Melissa Archer was under contract with Prospect Park until Jan 2013, and would not be free to do movies/TV (is in McBain’s love Natalie on GH)
goes to show; gossip is usually wrong.

As a big MA fan I can not wait to see anything she is in! This looks good! I almost feel like driving the 4hrs to chicago the nearest city to me where its showing to see it! Since TPTB are dumb and won’t bring her to GH and take advantage of all her fans that don’t watch that show (maybe soon if the PP thing is true) she just has so much hyper energy on screen she diffenatly won’t put you to sleep unlike some other that shall not be named!!!!

Defintely going to see this on October 12th when it comes out! Congrats to Melissa Archer, the movie looks fun and she looks so beautiful! Hope she and Tom Pelphrey are a hit, they look wonderful together and make it big on the big screen. I loved her as Natalie on OLTL and with John but since the TPTB were too dumb not to bring her to GH, I’m happy she is moving in this better direction. When do her other movies she did come out? Best of luck to her!

Never knew if she, or McBain, could act. McBain was always looking at Natalie’s boobs, as all audience memeber were. Should be a great movie if she wears the same low cut tops.

I’ve waited forever for Melissa and Tom to paired together and despite my extended anticipation…it’s crystal clear that EMFL won’t disappoint. It looks like tons of nothing but sweet hilarity and delicious fun. Melissa is stunning and Tom is rakishly adorbs. Congrats to all involved. This looks like a winner! Thanks for sharing Michael 🙂
