David Wain Makes Everything Better

David Wain Makes Everything Better Man, today started off crappy. Humidity, rain, and an early morning trip to the wilds of the Upper East Side to get one's ass X-rayed is not a recipe for an awesome Wednesday. But after a grilled cheese sammich and some much-needed rocking out to M.I.A.'s "Paper Planes," things started looking up. And then I saw a trailer for the upcoming David Wain/Paul Rudd chucklefest Role Models and presto change-o: Best Day Ever! What's that you say? Ken "Wait For Me Abby Bernstein!" Marino shares writing credits? Sign me the bleep up!

The premise isn't all that impressive: an odd-couple duo (played by Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott -- whoa, am I psychic or what? I was just talking about him!) get into hot water and to avoid jail they have to log community service hours at a facility for troubled kids. Hilarity ensues. But. But. This is a David Wain joint, son! And McLovin is in it! And, like, some cute black kid who thinks all white people look like Ben Affleck! So basically, that means we have a Wet Hot American Summer 2 on our hands. Only more mainstream. And set in the present day. And without Michael Showalter. Oh OK, who am I kidding? Nothing will ever be as good as WHAS. But this looks pretty solid. Don't believe me? Watch the clip and then talk to me. In theaters this November, fools!
