THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU TRAILER
Shaun Levy has made some bad movies over the span of his career, and when somebody has so much bad in their career, they inevitably form a bad reputation. Director Shaun Levy definitely has a not-so-good reputation. I mean look at "Just Married" or "The Internship" or "Cheaper By The Dozen" not exactly the examples that spring to mind when I discuss good, modern comedy. These are not the examples I use when I suggest comedy. No matter whose reputation is on the line, I have committed myself to giving every director the benefit of the doubt, no matter how bleak their career looks. "Real Steel" felt like a big left turn in Levy's career and I think Levy definitely benefited from it.
The first look at "This Is Where I Leave You" hit the internet today and it already doesn't look like the typical Levy comedy, which is definitely a good thing. I also like that he is working with greats like Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Rose Byrne, Adam Driver, and Corey Stoll. He's got a great cast and I hope this movie ends up being as good as it looks. We shall find out in September.
