Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler reunite with Wet Hot American Summer director David Wain for They Came Together, a rom-com spoof with a long list of cameos. The film premiered at Sundance earlier this year and finally has an official trailer. Check it out below.
In the silly film, Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler play two New Yorkers who meet in classic rom-com style. Poehler’s the owner of a small candy store; and Rudd’s the corporate exec of a big chain that wants to buy her out. But despite their differences, they fall in love.
And there’s a bunch of cameos: Christopher Meloni, Ken Marino, Bill Hader, Ellie Kemper, Ed Helms, Kenan Thompson, Michael Ian Black, Melanie Lynskey, Jason Mantzoukas, Jack McBrayer, Cobie Smulders, and Max Greenfield all show up in the trailer, but the cast-list is probably longer.
The romantic comedy genre is by no means a respectable. All of the rom-coms we see nowadays are usually parodies of former movies, but the difference with They Came Together is that Wain throws in his own jokes as well. They Came Together received a decent welcome at Sundace, but Wain’s films are tricky and this looks like it’s for a very specific kind of audience. But who knows, he might have another Wet Hot American Summer on his hands.
The movie hits theaters and VOD on Jun 27.
