Excl: Comebacks poster

08.31.2007

You knew that eventually David Koechner would get his own film considering his success supporting Will Ferrell movies. I've never found him particularly hilarious and I've maintained that his stuff in ANCHORMAN is the weakest in the entire film. But Koechner has something that makes me think he could pull off playing a coach in THE COMEBACKS quite successfully. He looks very coach-y. Prior to seeing the trailer in front of SUPERBAD, I thought this film was more of a straight forward football comedy like NECESSARY ROUGHNESS or something but it's actually more like a SCARY MOVIE spoof of sports movies

Expect to see parodies of INVINCIBLE, RADIO and even DODGEBALL. How exactly does one parody a parody of sports movies you ask? Better not to ask and just trust in the comedy. If it's funny, it doesn't really matter the thinking behind it. Below we have an exclusive look at the new poster for the film, which gives off a very 80s comedy kinda vibe. Check out the poster below and get ready for THE COMEBACKS in theaters October 26.

Eh...I have a bad feeling...

After watching the trailer, I didn't laugh once, and this feels all too familiar.

Maybe back when Scary Movie was unheard of, this would be a half-innovative idea, and maybe it would be more accepted by people like me.

Or maybe I just don't find that kind of humor funny.

But there is something weird that I am feeling, and it is telling me "This film will have really bad reviews, and the people associated with Wedding Crashers will be frowned upon deeply for their slipping as of late

But it is only a trailer, and it still has time to get some legs, so I will hold off judging it too harshly until I see it...IF I see it.

I hate the, "Scary Movies" and other spoofs like, date and epic movie. I hope this is good because i love, David Koechner. I think he's got great stuff in, Anchorman. He was also hilarious in, Naked Trucker and T Bones.

I also thought it was a football movie, like the Replacements... is just hope it is NOT like the Scary Movies spoof movies and of course, and many will agree, that it better not be like Date Movie and Epic Movie. Wise of them to not call it "Sports Movie"
