Clip and Poster for David Wain’s Rom-Com Spoof THEY CAME TOGETHER Starring Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler

they-came

David Wain’s latest, They Came Together should have a full trailer soon, but for now enjoy a funny clip and even a funny poster.  The rom-com spoof stars Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler, and if you’re familiar with Wain’s work (The State, Wet Hot American Summer, The Ten, Stella) you will notice he’s back to his old tricks of pointing out the absurd in hilarious fashion.

This time around it’s the romance genre and favorites of everyone (as it should be) Poehler and Rudd tackle chemistry like only they can.  It didn’t work with Tina Fey and Paul Rudd, as Admission was on my worst of 2013 selection, so let’s hope this one pulls off the laughs instead.

Here’s Wain’s on the film:

After having already made world-changing cinematic statements on adolescence (Wet Hot American Summer), religion (The Ten), service (Role Models), and community (Wanderlust), I teamed up with Michael Showalter to take on a topic that (to our knowledge) has yet been seen in the movies: ROMANCE — particularly heterosexual romance between two white people.

Our next idea was to mix this romance story with humor – so you could almost call this a Romantic-Comedy, so to speak.

We first worked with Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd on Wet Hot American Summer. They played summer camp counselors in that movie, so it was obviously hard for us to imagine them playing a shopkeeper and a corporate executive, respectively. But thanks to a team of acting coaches and an award™ winning VFX team, we pulled off the illusion.

Watch the clip and check out the funny poster that  below that takes aim at Deadline.com:
