2014 • R • Comedy, Romance
Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd skewer classic rom-coms.
WHY WE PICKED IT: David Wain’s winking parody of romantic comedy cliches is half takedown, half tribute, 100 percent clever and laugh out loud funny.
Romantic comedy tropes are lovingly turned on their head in this sublimely silly sendup starring Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd. Molly owns a quirky corner candy store in Manhattan, but Joel is an exec at the big Corporate Candy Company threatening to shut down her shop. How will they make it work? (You know how. But that’s okay. It is, in fact, the point.)
DIRECTOR: David Wain
