‘They Came Together’ Trailer: The Rom-Com Spoof We Deserve

+

Just as the dreadful the The Other Woman came out last week and launched a thousand think pieces on the formulaic blandness of most romantic comedies, out comes the exceptional trailer for David Wain’s rom-com takedown They Came Together, starring Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler as the chief lovebirds. In just two short minutes, we counted at least ten tired rom-com tropes that this movie pokes fun at, like dude friends offering their advice during a pick-up game of basketball, or breaking everything in the room before a passionate make out. The film, which also features a cast of comedy’s most consistently great supporting players, got very good notices when it screened at Sundance earlier this year, and hits theaters and VOD on June 27.
