    ...at least I hope so. Here's the trailer .

    It looks to have a BASEketball vibe, only with a better cast. [​IMG]

    Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Christine Taylor, Gary Cole, Jason Bateman, Rip Torn, Alan Tudyk, Stephen Root, William Shatner, David Hasselhoff, Brooke Burke, Chuck Norris, Brigitte Nielsen, Missi Pyle, Justin Long...

    Now that's a cast.

    Going just by the trailer, this looks like one I'll enjoy in a Zoolander sort of way. Plus it looks like Vaughn got himself a John Winger-type role, and that's a good thing.

    I also thought BASEketball when I saw the trailer. Sort of looks on par with that film or Old School, films that overall aren't great but have plenty of funny moments in them and become endlessly rewatchable on cable thanks to the people involved.

    The supporting cast looks okay, but I'm not that hot on Ben Stiller's body of cinematic work (I didn't like "The Cable Guy", "Meet The Parents", "Zoolander" or "Starsky & Hutch"). Maybe I'll give it a shot.

    Sincerely,

    John Kilduff...

    Definitely looked funny to me. Ben Stiller's character reminded me of his Tony Perkis in Heavyweights.

    Saw the trailer at "Jersey Girl"...LMAO. If Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell were somehow in this, it could potentially have been the funniest looking flick of all time. Definitely on my "must see" list this summer, if only for the crazy moustache and outfit that Stiller is wearing! [​IMG] [​IMG]
