    I feel like McHale could go either way. Other than that, I'm into it.

    If there's anyone who can do Chevy, it's McHale. They worked together for years and both have sardonic wit.

    Seeing as this is a Netflix movie I'm really hopeful we get this by the end of the year!

    This will be amazing. Sad that Wain is breaking his Paul Rudd streak though

    Like a lot of Netflix comedies, looks (visually) ridiculously cheap and fake. Still laughed during the trailer, v excited for it.

    Looks great. I'm all in on pretty much anything Wain does.

    I like the format they appear to be using, with Mull namedropping Forte and acknowledging that it's a movie

    This looks like it will be a lot of fun, but I have to agree that it does look cheaply made, thanks in part to hi-def/bright lighting. What do I care, though? I forever trust David Wain's vision.

    Looks like it could be cool. I've enjoyed most everything Wain has been involved with, and the cast is obviously great, so I'm hopeful it will be good.
