Tuesday Top Trailer: Goats

Welcome to a 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.

Goats – Opening August 10, 2012

This comedy sure looks odd, but there’s such terrific talent involved that it could be a whole lot of fun. Much of that talent is best known from television, starting with the two leads. Graham Phillips has spent three seasons causing trouble with his romantic escapades as Alicia’s daughter Zack on “The Good Wife,” and here he gets the opportunity to play a social outcast with a peculiar father figure and a clingy mother headed off to boarding school for a considerable change of pace. David Duchovny, who used to believe in aliens on “The X-Files” and then decided to have sex all the time on “Californication,” takes on a role somewhere in between as Goat Man, a zany guy with one hell of a beard. Vera Farmiga, an Oscar nominee for “Up in the Air,” is his mother, and she seems just about as possessive as a mother can be. Ty Burrell (“Modern Family”), Keri Russell (“Felicity”), Justin Kirk (“Weeds”), and Alan Ruck (“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”) are also on hand to complete a great ensemble. This likely won’t be a great film, but it looks like it’ll be pleasant enough summer fun.
