Funny People trailer online

FunnyPeople.jpgIs this trailer for Funny People really R-rated? I didn't see any violence, murder, gore, blood, etc. However what I did notice is that there are a number of moments that could have been plucked right out of various other comedy films before, a lot of buddy moments.

However there are some interesting moments, but I can't say I laughed. I can't say these are really funny people as I would be lying. The trailer is filled with sexual references, and I guess that's something that makes audiences laugh these days. Not me.

Funny People stars Adam Sandler as a successful stand-up comic, one might wonder by watching his act, who learns that he has less than a year to live. He sees the struggling comic played by Seth Rogen and takes him under his wing to teach him everything he knows about being funny.

Amazingly, for all that there is to be taught there, the film is apparently hitting over two hours twenty minutes according to The Playlist who also have the trailer, as seen below, just watch that very small age restriction box, it's MM/DD/YYYY by the way.

I'm not sure, but I bet that everyone leaps on top and tells me they were crying with laughter and I just don't get it. Well, I just don't.

Mind you, amongst the usual stars that hang together in these comedies is something of a surprise, Eric Bana, and his moment is rather funny, helped along by the fact that he is such a big actor.
