I don't know why this got you all hot and bothered.
By the way, this is a three-star submission, but I took one off because the trailer is blocked in Canada. We're now gating advertisements.
If you're going to gate something, advertisements are one of the few things that's kind of justifiable.
Look, I got sick of explaining every joke half way through the trailer. I can't imagine what a hell 90+ minutes of it would be.

david wain wrote and directed this, not amy poehler. that being said, and despite wain's obvious talents, i have a feeling this will end up being pretty mediocre.
limited theatrical release, and available on-demand on the same day.. pretty big hint there.

I am a huge Amy Poehler fan. I just watched a slew of movie trailers that were all indescribably boring and then this. Maybe it was just so much better than the ones I saw by comparison I thought it was good but in retrospect may be sub par.
Damn Hollywood lowering my expectations.
Anyone more jaded than me can go fuck themselves.

I like David Wain, and this kind of sounds like a really long episode of Stella. I was pleasantly surprised by Wanderlust, which for all its predictability, made me laugh. Role Models was great too. I'm assuming that after the commercial and (mostly) critical failure of The Ten, he just stopped making movies like Wet Hot American Summer.
I'll still see it. It seems like a great date movie that doesn't involve one million Judd Apatow jokes like "OMG THAT'S KATO KAILEN WHAT'S HE DOING IN MY KITCHEN MAKING SPAGHETTI AT 4 IN THE MORNING BECAUSE OH MY GOD I GOT THIS ONE DOG OFF MY DICK BUT THE DOG GAVE BIRTH WHILE BITING MY DICK AND I HELPED THE DOG GIVE BIRTH AND NOW THE PUPPY IS BITING MY DICK" type shit.
Also Wain makes movies like this because nobody saw The Ten except for me. And probably most of you. "Limited release" at my theatre meant.. I think it was showing during a film festival so it got Friday at around noon, then no weekend except for the late shows, monday and tuesday and gone on wednesday. Never had a chance.
This is the same theatre I worked at that had my Big Fat Greek Wedding for 8 months. Eight fucking months. Of my Big Fat Greek Wedding. Every Thursday we were about to send it back and there'd be a flood of people who heard about My Big Fat Greek Wedding. "ooh is this the last night you're going to play it?" type shit so we'd keep it another week.
Yeah we've got "Brew and View" places here (3 bucks for the movie and I think still 5 for a pitcher of PBR.. almost cheaper than sneaking beer in) which is awesome but in general it's going to be the second or third run Oscar nominees or some cult classic. There's little room for movies like this one, or Run Fatboy Run, which did turn out mostly sucking at the box office despite its actors. Spoiler alert. Simon Pegg enters a marathon because a girl. Hilarity ensues. Really good for a PG13 rom com.
In that movie's case, it was delayed over and over and over to the point where we thought it was a joke. We sold all the posters a year before it actually came to the theatre. It's this weird little void for non-Judd Apatow-esque comedies that these movies live in, which is really unfortunate. I'm sure Neighbors will do gangbusters because of Seth Rogan, even though it looks dumb as shit. Same with Sex Tape, which I legitimately thought WAS an April Fools joke.

From this trailer, it looks like every romantic comedy ever.
I'm all about Chris Maloni doing more comedy roles.
I think it looks pretty funny.
Can someone explain the amazing joke here? I don't seem to get it.
This is "Romantic Movie" along the lines of the "Scary Movie" franchise, that is why everything seems so tired and played out.
Why do they have to point out obvious jokes like "then I'll still have a job!!" and shit? She falls down the stairs and then high-fives some guy in a doorway... so? He says some shit about her being cute then makes a face, big deal?
I also don't like Paul Rudd so fuck this stupid shit.
Did you see the trailer for Wet Hot American Summer or The Ten? Or Wanderlust? All horrible trailers for good movies. Also not liking Paul Rudd is like not liking Ben Affleck or Tim Heidecker or even Adam Sandler. All are capable of doing things beyond their normal roles, and once in a while prove it (Affleck with Argo, Heidecker with The Comedy, Sandler with Punch Drunk Love.)
I don't really see the Scary Movie comparison. I haven't read the synopsis (scout's honor) but I think this is more akin to Annie Hall or 500 Days of Summer than it is a straight-up parody of romance and rom coms. Jesus christ I'm really psychoanalyzing a movie that I'll probably torrent a year from now.
I don't like any of those guys at all and I refuse to watch any movie that contains their face or voice.
It's your prerogative but you're missing out on 3 really good movies. I don't like John Travolta but it didn't stop me from enjoying Pulp Fiction.
I see the shades of Wet Hot American Summer here, I'm just not sure if it's really capture it again.

I loved the glance at the camera toward the end. Looks to me like it could go either way.
The problem with romantic comedy spoofs is it's hard to tell when you're making fun of the trappings of a romantic comedy or just using said traps in a bout of laziness.
Exactly. They've been 'cutely' spoofed too many times.
