Ali Wong And Randall Park Headline The First Trailer For ALWAYS BE MY MAYBE

As an added bonus, this trailer also includes one helluva cameo.

Look, I'm not big on romantic comedies. Too many of 'em feel trite and calculated, too saccharine for my tastes. Whenever a good one comes along (like, say, Long Shot, which is being sadly ignored in theaters even as we speak), it's always a pleasure, but I find those gems to be very few and far between. 

Nahnatchka Khan's Always Be My Maybe, on the other hand, looks like it might just hit my rom-com sweet spot: it stars two powerhouse funny people (Ali Wong and Randall Park), features one helluva surprise cameo appearance from (REDACTED), and the film's first trailer actually got a few laughs out of me. This is far more than I can say for most rom-coms (or their trailers).

See what you think: 

Just last night I was revisiting Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's The Interview (remember when that was a big deal?), and I was reminded how great Park is in that movie. He is, in fact, the best thing in it. Ali Wong, meanwhile, is a lethally funny standup comedian (if you've not already watched Wong's Hard Knock Wife, also via Netflix, get on that shit immediately). Seeing these two headline a rom-com is reason enough to get me interseted; that the trailer itself is funny is an added bonus. I will absolutely check this one out when it hits Netflix on May 31st.

How about you folks? Rom-com fans, or not so much? What do you think of the trailer above? Sound off in the comments below if you've got thoughts.
