This movie looks amazing. Way to go Ron and Vince!
best post ever.
Yuck. It’s even worse now.
OK no more gay line in the trailer, phew!, but both those guys need to find a Stairmaster and Allan Loeb may be Hollywood’s go-to writer but his scripts are really dreadful. Will this really work? It all seems so OLD and TIRED. Yeesh.
this trailer isnt nearly as fun as the original one…
Still not funny. Still looks like crap. And using an edited version of that awesome Cee-lo song? That says it all right there. “Forget” YOU.
Okay so one issue has been resolved.
Now for the other issue that was apparent in the first trailer and in this one too…..
how does Universal convince people this is worth $12 and two hours. I smiled once….
Actually, this is a much better trailer overall.
It’s perfect! Aaaaaand the movie STILL looks like it sucks. I can’t believe this simple stupid premise attracted Ron Howard. Maybe he’s been thinking about straying lately.
Yet another wasted 3:02 of my life. I just need to stop. No matter how they cut this trailer it still looks stupid and a “PASS” for me. Sorry but “Opie” is no more for me. His last few films were bad and I think this one will join those. I know I shouldn’t judge everything on a 3 minute trailer but I don’t have the money to spend on potential bad movie so the trailer has to sale on me.
Right you are! I completely agree with your assessment of things.
The point of a trailer is for you to judge a movie worthy of watching it. It is only fair to judge the movie as unwatchable, if that is the feeling the trailer inspires.
Vaughn needs to stop playing the same guy in every movie. He used to have potential (Unlike Kevin James, who apparently can only play the same guy in every movie).
At least the wives get to talk in this version. Though, it doesn’t really make the movie look any better.
Nice use of the Cee Lo Green song “F#ck You”. Message to GLAAD?
Oh, the movie still looks like it sucks. How can you make a story about a friend struggling to tell his best friend of his wife’s cheating and make it funny?
This new trailer is SOOOOOOOOO gay!
This is the longest trailer ever. I feel like it needs to be cut waaaayy down.
Long trailers make you feel like you have already seen the movie so why bother to go. Shorter does the job better?
Looks like another snoozer. Hollywood sure has been putting a lot of garbage out lately. There isn’t a single thing in the trailer of this movie that makes me want to see it.
Do you realize the execs. sit around and say how great it is?
Two tubs of jiggly pudding wind up with two smokin’ hot wives…I love science fiction.
Lol!! Maybe the flick is within the ‘fantasy’ genre?
How can Vince and Kevin be so fat, while their wives seem to be starving to death..?
And what does Anderson Cooper have to say about that?
Best comment of the day. FTW!
This trailer’s a little better than the first trailer. Still not as funny as one would think with such a stellar cast and accomplished director. At least now this trailer convinces me to possibly watch it . . . someday on DVD.
I go to see movies based on only one thing… entertainment value. I don’t need or want to be preached to in a movie and will walk out if the movie is about the normal paranoia such as global warming, gay people being normal, school teachers are needed for kids to learn.
I much prefer fantasy such as Super heroes or kids who have iqs over 300 and can start thermo-nuclear wars by themselves. Who done-its are great too as well as cute dog movies or Yogi Bear films.
Best troll post on the internet ever. I hope you get some bites.
Ron tell me why? You can actually sit with Regis or Orpah and honestly say this script grabbed me…”I had to be involved.”
You should double check your partnership agreement with Brian.
The fact that he didnt stop you from making this movie makes
me wonder “Does he really have your back?” Of all the material submitted to you this jumped out? Wow.
Before anyone else in the industry makes the same mistake – The song is called Fuck You. Fuck You, not Forget You. Using the “Forget You” version just reminds people how old fashioned, watered down, sanitized and risk-averse movies are compared to internet content. Just don’t do it. Use a different song.
Oh boy am I offended now. Forget about the gay slur in the original trailer. Now they’re making fun of having sex with second cousins plus Helen Keller jokes. I need to go on Ellen and complain now. I cannot tolerate any comedy making any kind of offensive statements whatsoever and this just sent me over the edge. Time to picket Universal. It’s time for another Katherine Heigl romantic comedy to wash the taste of The Dilemma out of mouth ….
This ia wicked cool movie. Get your popcorn ready. Later Bitches!
I’ll stick with what I said the first time — this movie looks like it blows. Sorry, that is in no way a homosexual reference – that is simply meant to convey it sucks … oops… er… Sorry again, I don’t mean “sucks” to imply that it…. oh forget it – this movie looks gay.
