The trailer for This Is Where I Leave You finally hit Youtube on Wednesday morning, and with a packed cast, the fight for meaningful screen time inside two minutes would obviously be brutal. Somehow the trailer would have to sum up the plot, introduce the main characters, and convince us that it's worth seeing. Which, frankly, is a pretty tall order. Thankfully, This Is Where I Leave You succeeds and seems like a charming little dark comedy worthy of your time come its September 12 release date. Here's who came out on top.
1. Tina Fey
Fey punches Dax Sheppard, nurples Adam Driver, and says "I'm Wendy Foxman, bitch." To paraphrase what another great tough customer said, if we didn't know, now we now. She also seems to play the sensible older sibling helping the rest of the family sort through their emotional baggage, which hopefully gives her a chance to prove her chops as a serious actor.
2. Jane Fonda
Fonda is refreshingly honest with her kids after their father's death, admitting what precisely attracted her to their father. Though, despite it all, she's also tuned up and ready for whatever the world may throw her way. It's important to be open and honest with your family. Also, because Fonda is so much better than the romantic comedy matriarch roles she has ben reduced to in recent years.
