FUNNY PEOPLE

The first trailer for Hollywood comedy emperor Judd Apatow's latest directorial effort FUNNY PEOPLE recently hit the internet courtesy of Moviefone and, as most of us were expecting, it looks like Apatow has another massive hit on his hands. The trailer doesn't pack a lot of funny but there's just the right amount of zingers with tons of heart. The only problem is that they seem to reveal pretty much the entire plot. In it, Adam Sandler plays a famous, veteran comedian who, on learning that he's suffering from a terminal illness, takes on an up and coming comedian as a protege (Seth Rogen). Click through to check it in our video hub and get it in HD over HERE. The laughs start July 31st.

Did anyone notice that nearly every actor in this movie is Jewish... not that there's anything wrong with that

I'm down. Looks much sweeter and heartfelt than most o his movies. I mean dont get me wrong, Knocked up and 40 year old virgin are sweet movies, but not like this. Can't wait to see some more Adam sandler where he isn't a crazy mofo. Looks like he pulled it off, which I know he can.

I'll wait and see...

...but being that there is a 64% chance this thing might suck, (like many Adam Sandler movies do), don't make me no hater.
Just an observer of how shit generally is.

Looking good.

While it didnt look hilarious, it seems like its not supposed to be. It looks like it's got a lot of heart and will be much more of an emotional film than his past ones. Great cast too!

I think someone that looked like Judd Apatow must have beat the crap out of Mark_Rumsfield in junior high.... only explanation I can think of.

His hate seems deep and personal

More or less good trailer, but the last line of the trailer sold me. That part of the candle was awesome.

I'm there for sure. The haters are in the minority. Most of us quite enjoy Apatow, Rogen, and Sandler. This looks great. And I'm dead serious when I say I could stand to watch this for 2 hours and 45 minutes like most of the other Apatow films. Just wanted to say that before the complaints of "good, but too long" start comin along.

Rogen and Apatow associated with a movie called FUNNY PEOPLE?! That's one hell of a stretch.

Wow, I'm pretty surprised by all the hate as well. I thought that was great, but admittedly a bit too revealing. That Bruce Willis joke was great. Can't wait to see it.

Seen the trailer 3 times already and I cannot wait. The 3-minute trailer thing, not a great idea but I'll still be there opening day/night seeing it. :-D

Good

One of the main reasons why I liked Chuck and Larry was that it wasn't focused entirely on Adam Sandler's character.
I think this is going to be the same way.
Anything Rogen is usually good.
Don't be hatin...
Maybe Sandler can learn a thing or two...

If Judd Apatow is a comedy "emperor" then someone needs to pull a Darth Vader and chuck his ass over a ledge to a very far drop.

This guy has absolutely no talent. The movies he directs are pure garbage and the same goes for most of the movies he produces.

Judd Apatow, Adam Sandler, AND Seth Rogen?

Why not just throw in Will Ferrell or Ben Stiller to make it even less unappetizing? PASS.

I'm hip to this news

Looks good, the Die Hard line was really funny. You're right though, they do give away a lot of the story in the trailer.

I always thought Apatow was incredibly overrated. He directed two movies that are considered to be good and i just didn't bite on either of them. This one regardless of how moody it looks actually looks very funny to boot. I'm on board for this one.
