Any Jerry Seinfeld fans reading today? Well, he isn’t going to be in the latest R-rated Adam Sandler flick Funny People but no matter how many times I watch the trailer, I can’t shake the Jerry Seinfeld feeling. I don’t know if it the Seinfeld-style opening, or the fact that the cast reminds me of the cast from Seinfeld (ie Jonah Hill – George Costanza, Seth Rogan – Kramer, Adam Sandler – Jerry).
It may be a bit of a stretch relating the latest raunchfest to hit Hollywood to Seinfeld but I simply can’t shake the thoughts from my mind. No, Sandler is no Seinfeld, and Seinfeld is no Sandler, they are completely different styles of humor, but the basic theme of the cast seems to fit. You have the comedian, the goof, the short fat guy, and the token white chick.
Funny People has not yet been rated, but I expect it WILL be rated R, and is set to release July 31, 2009.
What does everyone else think? Am I just spewing words from my ass, or does my comparison have some truth to it?.
