Jake Johnson's 'The Pretty One' Trailer Inspires These 26 Hyperbolic Observations
OK — I am definitely more of a television person than a movie one, but I'll be damned if the trailer for The Pretty One has me more excited for a romantic comedy than I've been in ages. It's like a romantic comedy coming-of-age version of The Parent Trap and somehow, that weird mess of a concept totally works. Which is exciting! And cool! And prime realty for a venture in good old fashioned Internet hyperbolics (Probably doesn't hurt that the film has some of our favorite leading men in it — Jake Johnson and Ron Livingston — either.) Man that Zoe Kazan knows how to pick 'em.
Considering hyperbole is all the rage (and something this author is all-too-adept at), it seems only fair to give the trailer the over-the-top treatment it might not necessarily deserve but, hoo boy, will the Internet demand. Press play and follow along with our own out of control reactions and see if they match up with yours, too! It'll be like a game: the silliest most ridiculous Internet movie trailer game that's ever been played in the entire history of cinematic existence! Or something.
