Second Trailer for Jake Szymanski's Comedy 'The Package' on Netflix
"Oh no… I think I cut myself!" Netflix has released another official trailer for their comedy The Package, which is now available, the latest film from Funny or Die filmmaker Jake Szymanski (Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates). The wacky, stupid comedy is about a group of teenage friends who go on a spring break camping trip, but an accident causes them to change their plans in hopes of saving their friend. Yeah, it's dumb and made for teenagers to get drunk and laugh at. The full cast for this includes Daniel Doheny, Geraldine Viswanathan, Sadie Calvano, Luke Spencer Roberts, Eduardo Franco, Michael Eklund, Gary Jones, Alexander Calvert, Sugar Lyn Beard, and Blake Anderson. This looks so, so bad and I don't even know why Netflix is pushing it with two full trailers, but here we go anyway. Have at it.
Here's the second official trailer for Jake Szymanski's The Package, from Netflix's YouTube:
When five teens go on a spring break camping trip, an unfortunate accident sets off a race against time to save their friend's most prized possession. The Package is directed by filmmaker Jake Szymanski, a former assistant director and also the director of Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates previously, after making numerous Funny or Die shorts for the website. The screenplay is written by Kevin Burrows and Matt Mider. This hasn't premiered at any film festivals or otherwise. Netflix will release Szymanski's The Package streaming exclusively starting on August 10th - it's now available. Is anyone actually going to watch this?

Perhaps I should be shot or just bull whipped, shiboleth, but I was laughing my butt off thru the whole trailer...lol...what's happened to me? Still, it was pretty funny...lol...

I guess I'm not in the mood for this. While watching this, I even said to myself, oh, I'm so happy I'm not a teenager any more. I mean, I do indulge myself with other kinds of trash (if I may call some films like this one that too). But here, you just go, have at it. There are almost idiotic films that make us joyful, entertained and we should enjoy ourselves while watching them. I'm definitely not innocent of that either. But I'm glad for you here, although I can't be part of it. So, do have fun. Later Bo ...

Yea, well...I giggled and chuckled during the trailer, shiboleth. I ain't going to go out of my way to see this... and sure...it's trash...but nothing wrong with watching and even enjoying trash if you keep in mind that that is what you are watching....Pauline Kael, the great critic back in the old days wrote that about trash movies.

Yeah, true to that. One needs to be relaxed about that. Films are not always art, they are sometimes means for some enjoyment, relaxation. As for Pauline Kael, she was interesting woman. I only read small part of what she has written (no books or something like that from her here), but I know from many film critics here that she was a smart one. Would look for something more from her sometimes. In the meantime, cheers Bo ...
