Hilarious U.S. trailer for I Give It A Year starring Rose Byrne, Anna Faris, and Rafe Spall
Yes, I used boobies to bring you here.
Writer/Director Dan Mazer has made a name for himself with the Sacha Baron Cohen comedies BRUNO, BORAT, and ALI G IN DA HOUSE, and is now moving on to his own features, starting with the British romcom I GIVE IT A YEAR. The straightforward pic follows the "trials and tribulations of a newlywed couple during their first year of marriage," but with some edgier, psuedo-raunchy humor. The film is packed with a great cast, many of which who are no strangers to the genre, including Rose Byrne (BRIDESMAIDS), Anna Faris (THE HOUSE BUNNY), Minnie Driver (GROSSE POINTE BLANK), Rafe Spall (SHAUN OF THE DEAD), and Simon Baker (The Mentalist). It looks like a blast, which isn't something I say often about this genre, but Mazer at the helm and the solid cast sell it easily.
Take a look:
Y'know, from time to time, those of us with a female counterpart are dragged to romcom's throughout the year, which is almost always a mind-numbing affair, but when you find one that has the potential to please both parties, then you've got a winner. I'm keeping this one in mind for a late summer date night.
I GIVE IT A YEAR is slated for August 9, 2013.
|Extra Tidbit:||What's your favorite romcom? I'm still a big fan of Forgetting Sarah Marshall and The Five-Year Engagement. Jason Segal has done all right by me in the genre.|
