A new trailer for Hailee Steinfeld's Barely Lethal is barely entertaining
If I didn't know better I would have assumed that BARELY LETHAL had been laying on a dusty shelf somewhere since the late 90's and we're only now being graced by its presence. I really feel for Hailee Steinfeld because she's so much better that what's on display here; hopefully she at least cashed a nice check following production.
A new trailer for the teen spy comedy has dropped and it does little to win over the people who were so put off by BARELY LETHAL's first trailer. Check it out below...or go watch the trailer for STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS again...that'd be my choice.
Get it? Regina rhythms with vagina? THAT'S COMEDY PEOPLE!
Perhaps I'm just in a terrible mood and it's entirely possible that there's an entertaining film somewhere in here which I'd be more than pleased to find to be the case, but at the moment BARELY LETHAL feels like an odd mix of MEAN GIRLS and KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE and doesn't succeed at being either. BARELY LETHAL will arrive on May 29, 2015 in a limited theatrical release and on VOD for those of you wanting to check it out.
