Best and Brightest cast was in town on Saturday for the premiere of their movie, which was presented by the Philadelphia Film Festival. Bonnie Somerville, Jenna Stern, Peter Serafinowicz, John Hodgman, and director Josh Shelov enjoyed a post-movie reception at Tweed. At 7 p.m. they headed over to the Ritz Five to the sold-out screening. I heard from a few movie-goers that they enjoyed it, and it was funny. After the flick the group headed over to Red Sky in Old City for a few drinks. Then Hodgman and Serafinowicz capped it off at Bob & Barbara’s on South Street. Somerville, Stern and a few others headed to G Lounge, which in the movie was called Club Nectar.
On Sunday John Hodgman toured the Mutter Museum before heading out of town.
