This past Saturday we headed to Scosso Ristorante & Martini Bar to celebrate the debut of Maria Menounos’s film ‘Adventures of Serial Buddies‘. Happy to promote her film in New England, Menounos was able to enjoy the evening with family and friends. ‘Adventures of Serial Buddies’ is a witty comedy about Gregory, a devout Catholic who wants to kill evil people in order to grant them access to heaven, and Gary, an assembly worker at a trophy shop who wants to kill potential trophy winners. The two come across each other unexpectedly and join with others in a comedic adventure. Menounos, who plays an intelligent sorority girl, produced the film along with Keven Undergaro.
When comparing film to television Menounos noted, “Film is nice because if you really enjoy a movie you can watch it again and again. Once a tv show is over it’s gone and you move onto the next one. No one is ever going to say ‘wow I really want to watch Extra from three weeks ago’.” Menounos explained that film also allows her to explore her creative side, although it is a very intense project.
As far as her favorite part of the movie, Menounos said she enjoyed hearing people in the theater laughing and having fun. “If they laugh that means that the movie was a success.”
A Medford native and Emerson College graduate, Menounos enjoys visiting the Boston and North Shore area and always makes a point to stop in at Somerville’s Daddy Jones Bar, which is owned by a friend of hers.
Menounos says that she is very excited to create more films in the near future while continuing Extra.
