Trailer for David Wain's They Came Together starring Paul Rudd & Amy Poehler

I'll take all the Paul Rudd I can get, and no innuendo is neccessary as the Lionsgate comedy THEY CAME TOGETHER brings enough to the table as is.  The latest from writer/director David Wain (ROLE MODELS, WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER) stars the ridiculously charismatic Rudd alongside Amy Poehler in what looks to be a great ensemble cast (and as far as I'm concerned, The...
