UNHINGED IMAGINARY FRIENDS  
Imaginary Mary centres on Alice (Jenna Elfman), a fiercely independent career woman whose life is turned upside down when she meets the love of her life – a divorced father (Stephen Schneider) with three kids.

    1. I was thinking the same which is the reason I left that photo full length :) It is beyond me how can some people have such flawless legs and bums?

    1. me too, too bad it is a single camera comedy, she would do great in a nice warm family sitcom with some hot hunk for her husband :)

    2. I agree, but right now I'll take her where I can get her. I always thought her real life hubby (or boyfriend, don't remember if they are married) seemed like an odd match. He's so reserved it seems and she's so lively, but hey, what do I know?

    3. don't know who is she with, have to google it! Peter Krause??? Never liked him, never! Almost as weird as Amy Schuller's match with her mind-blowing blond hunk of a boyfriend.

  4. That freeze frame poster does no favors for that CGI creature. In the trailer she looks hairy cute but that freeze frame poster is just creepy. Jenna looks great though. Do we even remember the other comedies mentioned before? Anyway wish Imaginary Mary luck. Though it just seems super strange to me.

    1. that is why they had to work on the CGI and the result is seen in the trailer. I do wish the critter had a voice of a young girl, not a grown up woman, it would have been cuter methinks
