Tuesday’s Top Trailer: You Again

Welcome to a new weekly feature here at Movies with Abe, Tuesday's Top Trailer. One of my favorite parts about going to see movies is the series of trailers that airs beforehand and, more often than not, the trailer is far better than the actual film. Each week, I'll be sharing a trailer I've recently seen. Please chime in with comments on what you think of the trailer and how you think the movie is going to be.

You Again – Opening September 24, 2010

I came across this trailer online, and despite the PG rating, it looks pretty exciting. First of all, any movie starring Kristen Bell requires no other draw for many people. This is a comedy about two different women, played by Bell and Jamie Lee Curtis, reminiscent in many ways of the recent remake of “Freaky Friday,” also starring Curtis, without any supernatural elements. What’s especially cool is that Bell and Curtis play mother and daughter, and they’re both facing off against their high school nemeses in the form of Bell’s brother’s fiancée and her mother. Bell’s foil is Odette Yustman, who has starred in thrillers like “The Unborn” and “Cloverfield” and should prove entertaining in a comedic role, while Curtis faces off with three-time Oscar nominee and recent “Avatar” star Sigourney Weaver, who excels at playing obnoxious characters. Add in Victor Garber as Curtis’ husband plus Betty White and Kristin Chenoweth in key supporting roles and you have a recipe for a fabulous ensemble. This is also a fun revenge premise where the bullies in question really do deserve the fate that will eventually befall them. This could be a forgettable comedy, but I suspect that the pedigree of the cast and the promising trailer should make it a cut above the usual fare this genre might produce.

I totally agree!!
I am going to see this just because I am obsessed with Kristen Bell.

Any news on the Veronica Mars movie?! I would love if that actually happened although I realize it is probably unlikely.
