The upcoming Robin Williams, John Travolta comedy Old Dogs may not scream hilarity at first glance, but some of the clips that have been released from the film are somewhat entertaining. The latest scene that’s hit the fan is entitled “Nut Job,” which accurately describes the action in this clip. It features Williams, more old dudes, and a highly victimized Seth Green.
Take a look at the clip…
One of the oldest gags in comedy is the strategically placed hit to the groin. It always works no matter what the subject matter or the circumstance. People like seeing other people in unexpected pain, especially if its coming from a short, red-haired dude.
He’s a brief synopsis of Old Dogs:
Two best friends — one unlucky-in-love divorcee (Williams) and the other a fun-loving bachelor (Travolta) — have their lives turned upside down when they’re unexpectedly charged with the care of 7-year-old twins while on the verge of the biggest business deal of their lives. The not-so-kid-savvy bachelors stumble in their efforts to take care of the twins (newcomers Ella Bleu Travolta and Conner Rayburn), leading to one debacle after another, and perhaps to a new-found understanding of what’s really important in life.
Typically this type of mid-life crisis fare isn’t that funny, but look at what happened with Travolta’s last film that centered on this subject. Do you remember a little surprise hit called Wild Hogs? That movie debuted at number one multiple weeks in a row, which no one expected to happen. Could Old Dogs do the same?
Old Dogs opens in theaters everywhere this Thanksgiving on November 25th.
