Amy Poehler & Paul Rudd Spoof Romantic Comedies In David Wain’s “They Came Together”



Hmm, let’s see. A new movie from “Wet Hot American Summer” director David Wain, written by the hilariously funny Michael Showalter, starring the ever-flawless Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd, that skewers the romantic comedy film genre?

It’s Time To Cry: Watch The Extended Trailer For “The Fault In Our Stars”

Honestly, whenever I see anything related to “The Fault In Our Stars,” it’s time to cry, so this extended trailer for the movie version of John Green’s amazing YA novel about teens with cancer had me reaching for the tissues almost immediately. What I could gather through the tears, however, is the sense that the film is sticking really close to the book, which is sure to come as a relief to fans. The trailer shows brief flashes of scenes that are directly from the novel, including Hazel and Augustus’s swoon-worthy date in Amsterdam and the egging of Isaac’s ex-girlfriend’s car. Just five more weeks until “The Fault In Our Stars” opens in theaters on June 6. I have never been so excited to sob uncontrollably in public.

In fact, we barely recognize any of these girls’ names, period. Maybe that’s a good thing, though. If we don’t get our hopes too high, it’s only uphill from here. That said, let’s meet the relatively unknown Holograms cast and see how they measure up to their animated counterparts.
