Hello, Jana here,
If you want to make a spoof of every romantic comedy you’ve ever seen, you should cast Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler. That’s what ‘Wet Hot American Summer‘ director David Wain did with ‘They Came Together‘. Poehler is the perfect choice for a corny spoof. She’s gained legions of fans with her quirky performances in ‘Saturday Night Live‘, ‘Mean Girls‘ and ‘Blades of Glory‘. Rudd is always going to be the dorky Dave Paris in Baz Luhrman’s ‘Romeo + Juliet‘.
When Joel land Molly meet, it’s hate at first sight: his big Corporate Candy Company threatens to shut down her quirky indie shop. Plus, Joel is hung up on his sexy ex. But amazingly, they fall in love, until they break up about two thirds of the way through, and Molly starts dating her accountant. Of course there’s going to be some wickedly over-the-top turning point where the couple gets their happily ever after. The film releases on June 27 but check out the trailer in the meantime.
