Robin Williams & Joel McHale in 'Merry Friggin' Christmas' Trailer
Well, this is a bummer. After comedian Robin Williams passed away in August, we reported on the few roles that he had been working on before his untimely death. One of them was the holiday comedy Merry Friggin Christmas, which sees him playing Dad to Joel McHale during a very dysfunctional holiday reunion. Now the first trailer has arrived, and we're disappointed to see this looks like it will join the pile of terrible holiday comedies that arrive every year. It just looks silly and unfunny, and not even Williams has any good moments in the trailer. With a cast this good, it's s shame that this one missed the mark. Watch?
Here's the very first trailer for Tristram Shapeero's Merry Friggin Christmas, originally from ET:
Merry Friggin' Christmas is directed by Tristram Shapeero ("Happy Endings," "Community," "Parks and Recreation") and written by Phil Johnston (Wreck-It Ralph). The film follows Boyd Mitchler (Joel McHale) and his wife Luann (Lauren Graham) as they spend a dreaded Chrismas with Boyd's father Mitch (Robin Williams) and his family of misfits. Upon realizing that he has left all of his son's gifts at home, Boyd hits the road with his father and younger brother in an attempt to make the 8-hour round trip before sunrise. Lauren Graham, Tim Heidecker, Oliver Platt, Pierce Gagnon, Wendi McLonden-Covey, Ryan Lee, Amara Miller and Bebe Wood also star in the film hitting theaters on on November 7th this fall. Interested?
