Lionsgate has released a new They Came Together clip from director David Wain’s (Role Models) upcoming romantic comedy parody. The film is a twisted send-up of the traditional rom-com formula, as characters played by Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler recount their meet-cute story to a pair of friends (Bill Hader and Ellie Kemper) over dinner. This new clip comes from the beginning of the film, as Rudd and Poehler explain which romantic comedy stock characters they each fit while also revealing a third, more important character to the story of their coupling. I caught the film at Sundance and it’s hilariously offbeat, bringing to mind the tone of Wain’s equally nutty comedy Wet Hot American Summer. You should absolutely keep it on your radar this summer, and if you haven’t watched the trailer, I recommend you do so now.
