"We want it so bad," she told the site on Friday. "We could do it for no money, no time. We would do it for free. I just don't know if we're legally allowed to do it."
I don't know what the law has to do with it. If creator Rob Thomas -- who had in the past tried to get his show Veronica Mars into theaters with a film spin-off -- wanted to make a Party Down movie, he would obviously work out whatever was legally necessary to do so. I'm also curious who Caplan means by "we," in her statement. Is the rest of the cast interested? Actually, I don't want to know. All this is going to do is lead to further interviews with Adam Scott, Ken Marino, Martin Star and, why not, even occasional guests like Joey Lauren Adams in which reporters ask for a crumb of a comment about the inkling of a chance of a possibility that a movie might happen.
I'm already sick of the idea and as much as I followed Party Down rather faithfully from the start, I'm not that upset it's done. I think the message of the show came through best in the company picnic episode, and the actual, highly repetitive plot-lines had few places to go in another whole season. But maybe there is room for the crew of Party Down Catering to work a Bluth Company function in the Arrested Development movie, in which Jack Bauer must also team-up with Veronica Mars in order to crack some kind of terrorist plot related to the Iraqi mini-palace deal and they all end up crashed on a mysterious island inhabited by a smoke monster.
