NSFW RAPTUREPALOOZA TRAILER: Today’s Comedy Middleweights Turn In A Seltzer-Freidberg Movie

But who are we to judge a film based on its trailer?

On paper, a film about the apocalypse in which Craig Robinson plays the Antichrist and Ken Jeong plays God should be a slam dunk, especially when you add the likes of Anna Kendrick, John Francis Daley, and Rob Corddry.

But it isn't, apparently. Maybe I'm just being a grump, but if Rapturepalooza ends up being even a little bit good (and with a title like that, how could it not?), this will have to go down as one of the worst, most damning trailers ever cut. Red text title cards should be a massive no-no by now, and yet they're out in full force here. On top of that, the jokes chosen to showcase just don't do much. "I killed Jimmy Neutron" was the closest I came to laughing. Everything else made me want to throw tomatoes at my computer. The fact that this film has roughly 2,000 other Craig Robinson apocalypse comedies to compete with doesn't help much either.

But it does have cuss words. I like those. Basically every time I hear one, I laugh. Can't help it. I'm also partial to gay jokes. They don't have to be good or anything because the fact that there are gay guys is funny enough all by itself.

What do you guys think? Am I just being pissy because my kid replaced my apple juice with pee?
