A fun new clip has been released for Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler's romantic comedy spoof, They Came Together. It features a scene between Rudd and co-star Jason Mantzoukas as they start horsing around in their office by tossing a little football to each other. Things don't turn out too well for them with this foolishness.
The movie comes from director David Wain, who also brought us Wet Hot American Summer and Wanderlust. As far as the comedy style goes, there were more hits than misses. For a spoof movie, They Came Together was actually pretty funny.
When Joel (Paul Rudd) and Molly (Amy Poehler) meet, it’s hate at first sight: his big Corporate Candy Company threatens to shut down her quirky indie candy shop. Plus, Joel is hung up on his sexy ex (Cobie Smulders). But amazingly, they fall in love, until they break up about two thirds of the way through, and Molly starts dating her accountant (Ed Helms). But then right at the end…well you’ll just have to see. (Hint: Joel makes a big speech and they get back together.) From the director of Wet Hot American Summer, Wanderlust and Role Models comes a hilarious and irreverent subversion of the romantic comedy genre.
