This movie is going to be absolutely crazy and this trailer just gives you a little taste of what's to come. I'm certain this will probably jump to the top of your most anticipated summer movies once you see what they're offering. Ready to enjoy the latest hilarious shenanigans from Ben Stiller and his crew of misfits?

WOAH! wtf is that decapitated head the director? but anyway yeah looks hilarious.

Much better trailer than the first but I'm not quite sold yet. Love love Stiller for being different & making me laugh so many times with that straight up ballsy & uncomfortable comedy he delivers so consistently. However, I'm still waiting for that one special trailer to put us over the edge, much like "The Happening" trailer I just witnessed thanks to

Sinner on May 16, 2008


Steve Coogan! I think this will be great. Looks like a lot of good comedies out in the summer.

max on May 16, 2008


Wow! Amazing in a totally hilarious way. Had me laughing out loud the whole time 🙂 Definitely a must see for me.

Silver on May 16, 2008


all the trailers that came today were awesome. All of them sold their movie very well.

Jojo on May 16, 2008


The severed head did it for me.

Sean Kelly on May 16, 2008


I just peed my pants......and it felt good.

tommyturner on May 16, 2008


I'm not sure why, but this trailer just killed my interest in this film.

Brad on May 16, 2008


Wasn't expecting much in the first place..but the farting really turned me off from it..hate useless farting jokes..too crude. The rest was great, except for the farting I'm gonna agree with tommyturner (#8)

Garrett.king on May 16, 2008


#10, fart jokes turned you off but a severed head is ok? LOL

David on May 17, 2008


@Garrett.king I think the farting scene was an allusion to "the nutty professor 1 or 2" where Eddie Murphy plays every character on the dinner table just like Jack Black does it in the trailer. This trailer is just hillarious and i can't wait to see the movie.

vic on May 17, 2008


HAHAHAH! I'm so looking forward to this movie. Robert Downey Jr is hilarious in this and lol at the kid at the end! This movie is going to be so OTT it's going to be brilliant!

Mubariz Ahmedi on May 17, 2008


Yes. Thumbs UP. Looking forward to it.

Minic on May 17, 2008


#10 - That's a parody on Eddie Murphy and Norbit/Nutty Professor, because there's fart jokes in them.

Joker on May 17, 2008


Best trailer this year 🙂

Enola on May 17, 2008


robert downey jr as a black man....nuff said

JNYCE on May 17, 2008

CHEEKYmonkey on May 17, 2008



Discateia on May 17, 2008


thats fucking hilarious, Ben Stillers best movie to date just by the trailer so far and dont even get me started with Robert Downy Jr. funny shit!!

Curtis on May 17, 2008


Oh man that's so gory!

DCompose on May 17, 2008


Robert downey jr. is funny as hell. then he is now a blonde haired blue eyed guy who turned into a black, man...hilarious, he had be laughing so hard. stiller, definately put together a good one on this, and jack black, awesome looking. Over the top and hilarious, definately looking forward to it.

taurinh on May 17, 2008


haha wow, this was the first time i wanted to watch a trailer again after just viewing it.

pogi on May 17, 2008


Wow. This movie will be AWESOME!

Ryan on May 17, 2008


#11 Fart jokes done right and subtly are funny. Doing them in extreme bits of pointless, humorless moments is stupid. The severed head and such is alright because I have a morbid humor #12 and #15 Why would it allure to the nutty professor and norbit? Is there a specific reason why it would be an ode to it? Because to me it just seems like a scene that should be severely edited from the movie. Dunno though. I do know that I'll probably rent it instead of theater.

Garrett.king on May 17, 2008


Funny as hell count me in. lol

Tirrell on May 17, 2008


funny, especially when he was playing with the head. hahahahaha

Darrin on May 17, 2008


#25 They wanted to poke fun at eddie murphy, I don't know if its a grudge thing or whatever but it was okay. Anyway that trailer was really funny it just made it worth the $12 i'm going to throw out at Arclight.

Eric on May 17, 2008


looks good,but just don't expect a smart comedy.

twispious on May 18, 2008


Hey mother fucka that guy is dead! I think I can spot a prop head. Wow those are really good lines.

Xerxex on May 18, 2008


Looks like the sort of comedy that would be hilarious if I was still fifteen. I think I'll pass on this one.

sleepykid on May 18, 2008


Garrett, I wouldn't let the fart scene stop you from seeing this. I don't think the movie is going to revolve around that kind of humor. I think it's just that the Jack Black character is supposed to be the type of actor who makes those movies, so that scene is just to establish exactly what type of films he makes.

Joel on May 19, 2008


Laugh. Out. Fucking. LOUD!!! (I usually try not to swear in my coments, but it's a red band trailer dammit!) 😛

kevjohn on May 19, 2008


#25 If you haven't caught on yet, the movie is spoofing not only war movies in general, but movie star archetypes so yes Jack Black is sending up lame comedians and there awful films particulary Eddie Murphy's recent duds,while RDjr is obvisously mocking guys like Russell Crowe and even DeNiro to a certain extent both notorious 'Method Actors'. Let's run down the list... Ben Stiller = Shallow dimwitted action stars like the Arnold and Vin Diesel. Robert Downey = Anger challenged method actors like Crowe and Sean Penn. Jack Black = Well at this point Jack Black himself, Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence. Brandon T. jackson = Stereotypical rapper wannabee actors like DMX and Ludachris.

PimpSlapStick on May 19, 2008


" Im sorry a dingo ate your baby" " Now your crossin some fuckng lines" HAHAHAHA Jack Black Taint Gun....amzing

Ripper on May 31, 2008

tatoka on Jun 13, 2008
