‘They Came Together’ Trailer: Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler Have an Odd Romance

Published 12 months ago by

For those who have been wondering, David Wain’s new comedy They Came Together is actually a real movie and not just an elaborate practical joke or skit. Featuring the tagline “He came… She came… They both came” and a poster with a hilariously baffling set of “accolades” from Deadline, They Came Together stars Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler as a crystallization of every romantic comedy couple ever, and in true How I Met Your Mother style they’re determined to explain every step of how they, well, came together.

They Came Together was directed by David Wain (Role Models), who also co-wrote the script with Michael Showalter (Wet Hot American Summer), and the supporting cast includes Ed Helms (The Hangover) and Cobie Smulders (Captain America: The Winter Soldier). Reviews so far have been almost universally positive and the new trailer makes it clear that a whole lot of romantic comedies are up for a skewering.

Like Scary Movie, They Came Together will probably be a lot funnier to those who are intimately familiar with the genre and the specific movies being parodied, but even people who’ve only seen a small handful of standard Hollywood romcoms will probably be able to recognize the common tropes. Check out the poster for They Came Together below (and don’t forget to read the red text below the credits).

Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg attempted to tackle a similar spectrum of romantic comedies in the 2006 parody Date Movie, but… well, let’s just say that it left a lot of room for improvement. The title notwithstanding, They Came Together looks like a much sharper and more subtle jab at a formula that has long been in need of a proper roast.

Plus, Marvel fans can watch it and enjoy the fact that Scott Lang and Maria Hill are onscreen together. It’s the little things.


They Came Together is out in theaters on June 27, 2014.

  1. Souns like a title for a porno hahaha

    • sounds* lmfao

      • insert orgasm jokes here

  2. I just re-watched Wet Hot American Summer over the weekend for the first time in a while and I was reminded how much I love that movie.

    So it goes without saying that this is a must see for me.
    Amy Poehler is a goddess IMO and the rest of the cast is loaded with some of my favorites in comedy right now.
    It’s also been a goal of mine to see anything and everything that Jason Mantzoukas is in.

  3. You had me at magical burger

  4. Yes, Cobie Smulders is of course best known for her role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Nevermind you mentioned HIMYM just a paragraph before…

    • I am so sorry for this grave oversight.

      • Also, you can mention that Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler have both been playing together tin Parks & Recreation. Amy obviously as the main character and Paul has Bobby Newport during the campaign season (I think it was the 4th)

  5. With Michael Shannon and Christopher Meloni (MAN OF STEEL!) and Bill Hader? Ooooo…
