Goofy trailer for The Secret Lives of Dorks with Jennifer Tilly has a heavy focus on boobs

Aug. 19, 2013by: Paul Shirey

Look, I'm not gonna sugarcoat it. This looks cheesy and low rent as hell, but the bottom line is that I laughed out loud a number of times. Call me juvenile, call me off my rocker, but I go by the rule that if it makes me laugh then it's worth sharing. Given the sheer amount of boob jokes alone, this one gets some kudos, especially when one of them involves a cupcake stuck to one. Yeah, yeah, I get it, the laughs are silly as shit and the premise is a bit overcooked, but there's still something fun about the awkward scenarios that always get a chuckle out of me. In addition, James Belushi and Jennifer Tilly show up to add some B-movie street cred and on the whole this could be some solid, mindless fun.

Take a look:

Here's the synopsis:

Samantha (a dorkette) is in love with Payton (a dork) who is in love with Carrie (a cheerleader),who dates Clark (the football captain). When Clark seeks out Payton for secret comic book lessons, Payton sees his chance to be with Carrie. But Carrie's more interested in setting Payton up with Samantha. High School's complicated, huh? And what's Clark's secret?

Again, I doubt this movie will change your life, but hey, boob jokes, a hot cheerleader, and even a cameo from The Greatest American Hero, William Katt, can't be so bad, eh? It's destined for the silly bin, for sure, but that's not such a bad thing. Or is it?

THE SECRET LIVES OF DORKS will have a limited theatrical run and iTunes release on September 27, 2013.

Looks godawful.

Did they pay you guys to plug this trailer? Since when does Jennifer Tilly get publicity? Looks astoundingly awful, and Jim Belushi is the kiss of death. If you need a reason to hate him just look up David Cross' story about meeting the guy before he was famous.

Not impressed

The trailer did nothing for me at all. I think I won't be paying to see this one.

@jason -- the font/poster style is very similar to 'silver linings.' stop calling people stupid when you're being stupid yourself.

GMA

Bought the first season of Greatest American Hero to try to take a trip down memory lane. I must have been a lenient critic back then cause it was awful.

I liked it when it was on TV... but then, I was 11. The girl who played Pam Davidson was hot.

Agreed. My advise though, keep the illusion alive, and don't ever watch it again. The way you remember it is waaay better than it actually was. It's one of those times you can ruin your own childhood with the original material.

John Hughes, we already miss you

Maybe it's the trailer, but this looks like every joke recycled from every teen gross-out movie made in the past 30 years. Pass.
