"For A Good Time, Call...," a new movie about phone sex and female friendship, got its big premiere in the Village. NY1's George Whipple filed the following report.

The new comedy "For A Good Time, Call..." premiered in the Village, at an event sponsored by Grey Goose vodka.

Seth Rogen's wife, Lauren Anne Miller, actually lived the script when she was in college. She also co-wrote, produced and starred in the film.

"I think phone sex is still very much among us. Katie ran a phone sex line her freshman year of college, out of her dorm room: 1-866-FSU-T--S," says Miller. "And we thought, 'What a fun way to tell the tale of two girls discovering who they are and finding their own voices.'"

Katie Anne Naylon, Miller's actual college roommate, co-wrote the film with her. Naylon is portrayed on the big screen by Ari Graynor, who is also the film's executive producer.

"The real-life Katie -- she calls me 'Movie-Me,' which I think is very cute -- she really ran a phone sex line out of her Florida State dorm: 1-866-FSU-T--S. And she and Lauren were really roommates and kind of an odd couple," says Graynor. "They're still best friends today, and you think, 'Really?' Like, they seem... they're so different."

Justin Long plays Lauren's best friend on the big screen. He couldn't answer my questions because he was mesmerized by the famed Whipple eyebrows.

Whipple: Talk to me about this movie. Tell me about your role in the --

Long: I can't think of anything else except hairy caterpillars.

Whipple: Yeah, that's it. You're blinded!

Long: Eye toupees!

Jamie Travis, looking extremely hip in his Paul Smith suit, directed the film.

"When my agent first showed me the script I thought, 'I don't know that I want to be that guy who directs a sex comedy.' But I read the script and I was disarmed by how sweet it was," says Travis.

This movie is New York-based, the girls lived in Gramercy Park and all the action happens in the Big Apple, so check it out! It's in theaters on August 31.
