Filmmaker Bringing 'Bad Parents' Back to Ridgewood

Screenings on four separate nights in January.

Ridgewood's own Caytha Jentis is bringing her comedy "Bad Parents" – based loosely on her experiences as a soccer mom in the area – to the village's Warner theater.

The satire – starring Jeanine Garofalo, Christopher titus, Cheri OTeri and others – chronicles a group of intense parents on a U-8 soccer club. 

A special red carpet event will be held on Jan. 23 at 6:30 p.m. at the Warner Theater on E. Ridgewood Ave.

Scheduled to appear are Reiko Aylesworth from Bad Parents (also Hawaii 5-0, 24), Emmy-winning actress/producer Martha Byrne, Jaqueline Madden (of VH1), Liz Gaspari of the sports nutrition industry and other special guests. Moxie Salon is sponsoring the opening night.

An edited, children's appropriate version will be shown on Jan. 24 at 5 p.m.

The other screenings will be held on Jan. 30 and Jan. 31 at 7 p.m. Ticket holders of each screening are invited back to Park West Tavern for meets-and-greets and drink discounts.

Tickets are $12 for each of the 7 p.m. showings; kids pay $8 for the children's show and adults $10.

Many of the crew are from Ridgewood, including producer Dorothy Fucito, line producer Aimee Denaro, director of photography Anthony Savini, and editor Verne Mattson.

I was to be an extra in the movie. I found out Jeanine Garofalo was in the movie and i walked off the set.

Wow Bill, good for you, I am so happy you let us know, now we can all go about the rest of day knowing that Bill Porterfield, putting stardum aside, walked off the set because he was not happy with the choice of the cast. Good for you Bill we would not want you to do anything that you did not agree with. Did they cancel the scene when they found out that Bill Porterfield "walked off the Set" Wow! I wish I was there to see, Bill Porterfield walk off the set!

Glad i could add a little excitement to your life, kevin.
kevin January 23, 2013 at 06:22 PM
Sorry Bill, you added nothing to my life... never have, never will.
Fan of Ridgewood January 24, 2013 at 12:08 AM
i guess not to a gutless snot who hides behind a single name.
kevin January 24, 2013 at 05:03 PM
Kevin Linn, would you like my phone number also. And why would that make me a snot?
Fan of Ridgewood March 12, 2013 at 09:04 PM
You're a snot because you insult someone who you dont know. I appreciate you providing your last name. Take the final, courageous step and add it to your screenname.
kevin March 27, 2013 at 08:28 PM
Bill just by reading your comments on The Patch, I KNOW exactly who and what you are. Last step taken...
Ridgewood Mom March 27, 2013 at 11:16 PM
Kevin, its OK to insult people that you do not know if they are Jeanine Garofalo. Its just not OK to insult people that you do not know if they are Bill Porterfield.
Ridgewood Mom March 27, 2013 at 11:17 PM
Bill is brave. He uses his real name when he says offensive things on the Patch.
Fan of Ridgewood April 01, 2013 at 06:44 PM
Kevin, i think you think u know a lot of things. You i didnt insult Jeanine Garofalo. I said i walked off the set. Yes, Ridgewood Mom, it does take bravery and accountability to add ur name name to your comments, Noone is impressed by anonymous comments. Kevin appears to have recently learned that. And, Kevin, you said I'd never add to ur life. Uve learned to grow a pair and add ur last name. congrats.
Fan of Ridgewood April 01, 2013 at 07:08 PM
And, without resorting to namecalling, just who am i, Kevin?
Ridgewood Mom April 01, 2013 at 08:14 PM
Yeah Kevin, without resorting to calling people things like "gutless snot," just who is Bill Porterfield? lol I'm not impressed by your comments either Bill. Nor by your ideas about what is polite and proper. Just look at the example you set.
Ridgewood Mom April 01, 2013 at 08:34 PM
Personally, I'd prefer not to "grow a pair."
Fan of Ridgewood April 02, 2013 at 12:16 AM
Ridgewood Mom, whoever that may be, u have a nasty habit of misquoting people, usually when ur cheerleading for ur teachers union. Everyone on the Patch knows ur deal. I have no interest in what ure impressed by. U hide behind a screenname and take shots at anybody who doesnt want to raise teacher's salaries. Kevin asked me why i called him a gutless snot and i've answered him. I've now asked him to explain his nastyness to me. Apparently he knows all about me.
