First Hilarious TV Spot for Judd Apatow's Funny People
There's not much that makes me laugh these days, but I laughed my ass off watching this. The very first TV spot for Judd Apatow's Funny People has aired and we have it for you below. I love all of the crazy t-shirts everyone is wearing in this, like the one Jason Schwartzman has on in one scene that says "Who writes this stuff?" and the one Seth Rogen has on with the Superman symbol inside of the Star of David. There's a lot of new footage we haven't seen in the trailer in this TV spot and it all looks incredible. I'm very excited for this and I have a good feeling that it could end up my favorite movie of the summer, but that is yet to be seen.
It really just looks like Apatow had found the perfect combination of emotional drama and heart and comedy, and I can't wait to see this. If any scene makes me tear up, then I know Apatow has pulled it off.
Watch the first TV spot for Judd Apatow's Funny People:
Over the past few years, writer/director Judd Apatow has shown that nothing—not even losing your virginity or the miracle of childbirth—is sacred. About his third film behind the camera, he says, "I'm trying to make a very serious movie that is twice as funny as my other movies. Wish me luck!" When seasoned comedian George Simmons learns of his terminal, inoperable health condition, his desire to form a genuine friendship cause him to take a relatively green performer under his wing as his opening act.
Funny People is both written and directed by comedy mastermind Judd Apatow, of 40 Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up, as well as "Freaks and Geeks", previously. The story in the film is inspired by Apatow's own real life experiences. Universal will be debuting Funny People in theaters on July 31st this summer!
