I’ll be honest, Rainn Wilson as a washed up 80s rockstar who has a comeback drumming for his nephew’s high school band is a pitch I’d probably catch if I were a movie exec (wait, was that gay?).
That’s why it’s sad how many times people get hit in the face and/or nuts during the trailer. That figure tends to be inversely proportional with how funny the actual movie is (opposite is true to for videos shorter than thirty seconds). I counted two face shots, three prat falls, a nut shot, and an oops-we-couldn’t-afford-Jonah Hill. And in the next frame, the kitty says to the doggie, "Here we go again!"
