Vince Vaughn channels more serious side in trailer for Term Life

01.21.2016

TRUE DETECTIVE Season Two certainly has its fair share of critics and detractors, but, if there is one benefit I found coming out of last year's run (in addition to a solid climax), it was that Vince Vaughn was able to shake loose a lot of his Vince Vaughn-ness.

For years, it had felt like Vaughn was trapped playing this one particular character who moved from movie to movie and story to story, doing the same thing, just in different circumstances. OLD SCHOOL, DODGEBALL, THE WEDDING CRASHERS - you name it, he was always the same guy. But what TRUE DETECTIVE allowed him to do was show that he could handle something more serious, more grounded and, in a lot of ways, not snarky or comedic.

The trailer for TERM LIFE shows he is on the path to more work in that direction, and, while this film may not feel like a winner (the clunky inclusion of the father-daughter relationsip has me running for the hills), it's nice to see that Vince Vaughn may have a different gear to show us in future projects after all these years.

TERM LIFE can be found on-demand on March 1, and then later found in theaters on April 8.

This can go one of two ways... Surprisingly good or amazingly bad. So far it looks like it's leaning towards bad but I won't get my hopes up and still check it out. I'm hoping it surprises me but the way they edited that trailer and the scenes they decided to accentuate does not bode well.

Vaughn definitely has the dramatic chops in him to differentiate himself enough from his comedic persona.

Should be interesting to see if Peter Billingsley can actually direct something of substance.

Are you sure this isn't a comedy? That hair cut is the funniest thing Vaughn has done in years.

One part of me thinks this feels like warmed-over mid-'90s Tarantino, but on the other hand, it's got Bill Paxton, Jonathan Banks, Terrence Howard, and another reteaming of Vaughn and Jon Favreau. And yes, it does look like a nice change of pace for the actor (and that awful hair!).
