This is the trailer for Greenberg, from writer/director Noah Baumbach, starring Ben Stiller.  I feel very unqualified to talk about it, since Noah Baumbach is that guy who I always hear good things about but I’m not that familiar with, and the trailer has a song from one of those bands that everyone says is cool that I never got around to listening to probably because I’m not that cool. ;-(

A New Yorker moves to Los Angeles in order to figure out his life while he housesits for his brother, and he soon sparks with his brother’s assistant.

Based on the trailer, it appears Ben Stiller is a mopey, depressed loser, until one day he meets a girl who’s desperate and depressed and lonely enough herself to put with his crap. Then she won’t bone him at first because she already boned everyone else and she wants this to be different. Then his dog gets cancer and they fall in love, a story as old as time.  I dunno, I might see this.  Or I might just eat easy cheeze straight from the can and zone out on the couch watching Maury.  Either way, man, I don’t even care anymore.
