This movie needs to be in theaters ASAP. Really. The trailer is NSFW (probably, well, maybe? I love it and have watched it 15 time just this morning, so I’ve been desensitized to it’s contents, but maybe wait until there aren’t kids around at least. Your co-workers will crack the heck up though so maybe it’s NSFK? Is that even an acronym?)
If you didn’t see this movie’s semi-prequel, Knocked Up, don’t worry, you don’t have to see it to enjoy this one, although Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann totally steal the show in that movie. It’s like they took a snapshot of my husband and I, put us in a movie and made us say and do all the things we either already do in real life, or exaggerated it to protect our identities. Or maybe not, but I like to think it’s loosely based on my life because I can identify with “Debbie” (Mann’s character) so well. She is the funnier, way hotter, blonde version of me.
Enough build up – here is the trailer. You’re Welcome.
Right?! Okay, so I may have already bought tickets to this when it comes out. Not really, I’ll just throw the kids at the unsuspecting hubby and claim I have to watch it “for work purposes.”
