Stand-up comedienne and TV comedy writer Whitney Cummings (2 Broke Girls, Whitney) makes her feature directorial debut with "The Female Brain," an ensemble comedy that takes a humorous look at the differences between women and men's romantic impulses.

A comical adaptation of the best-selling research book of the same name by neuropsychiatrist Louann Brizendine, the upcoming movie, in which Whitney has cast herself as the fictional version of the author, boasts a strong cast that includes the likes of Sofia Vergara, Cecily Strong, James Marsden, Lucy Punch, Beanie Feldstein, Deon Cole, and Toby Kebbell with a surprise appearance by basketball star Blake Griffin as a professional athlete who is not only saddled with an injury but is also having relationship problems with his wife.

Whitney also co-wrote the adapted screenplay with fellow comedian Neal Brennan, co-creator of the "Chappelle's Show."

"The Female Brain" is hitting theaters and VOD on February 9th. Watch the newly released trailer, above.
