‘A Little Help’ Trailer Doesn’t Close the Door When it Pees

By  · Published on May 23rd, 2011

Would it be cooler to say that you father died in 9/11 or of a heart attack in your driveway? What will the kids at your middle school think? These are the pressing questions that will hopefully get answers in the first feature film written and directed by Emmy nominee Michael J. Weithorn.

There’s no telling what kind of tone A Little Help is going to strike because, from the trailer, it looks like a happy-go-lucky comedy shoved into a drama that’s unafraid to get dark and tell jokes that will leave some uneasy. This very well might be a sunshinier version of World’s Greatest Dad or it could be an animal all its own.

An animal that annoyingly repeats everything you say. Either way, you get to see what Chris O’Donnell’s been doing (and you get to see what Jenna Fischer’s been doing on her nights off from The Office).

Am I a bad person for wanting to see this?

Are you a bad person too?
