"As a girl, you see the world like a giant candy store." This is one of the first things we hear from Justine (Jennifer Aniston), the title character of THE GOOD GIRL. Justine, though, is no longer a girl - she is grown up, married and longs for a life more fulfilling than the one she leads with her house painter husband, Phil (John C Reilly), and his ever-present buddy, Bubba (Tim Blake Nelson).
Justine discovers something of a soul mate in her co-worker, Holden (Jake Gyllenhaal), a creative, passionate young man who represents a chance for her to escape into a new world of emotional and sexual awakening. But when the affair quickly moves from liberation to weird obsession, Justine finds herself ensnared in a chaotic web of blackmail, larceny and love...all at the Retail Rodeo.
Is Justine ultimately a good girl? Can she make the right choice between her dependable husband and disturbed lover?
The DVD comes complete with Retail Rodeo's best selection of specials including a feature length audio commentary by Director Miguel Arteta and Writer / actor Mike White (who appears in the film as creepy store detective Corny), and scene specific commentary with Jennifer Aniston. On the bonzanza bargain aisle there is also an alternate ending montage, outtakes reel and nine deleted scenes, each with optional audio commentary.
THE GOOD GIRL marks the third collaboration for Arteta and Producer Matt Greenfield (Star Maps, Chuck & Buck). Critically acclaimed at its Sundance Festival premiere, the film has also garnered praise for its stars and supporting cast, including Zooey Deschanel (Almost Famous) as the foul mouthed Cheryl.
