2014's Feel-Good Family Dramedy Has A Busty New Trailer

We're not even six-months into the new year, and Hollywood's latest feel-good family dramedy has begun its campaign tour. You know the drill: Star-studded cast teams up for a flick featuring some marital strife, a driven daughter, a don't-get-her-drunk mother, various extended family members reuniting because of a death, blah, blah, blah. It's a tried and true trope that, though it doesn't usually gain many award nods, brings in the big bucks at the box office.
This Is Where I Leave You is Shawn Levy's film adaptation of Jonathan Tropper's 2009 novel of the same name. Essentially, four adult siblings with various adult problems are brought together by their father's death and forced into family vacation by their mother, played a "bionic breasted" Jane Fonda. Jason Bateman plays the son whose good city life has gone all wrong after he discovers his wife is sleeping with his boss. Tina Fey's the successful sister with hair extensions; House of Cards' Corey Stoll is the son being pressured to get his wife pregnant; and Girls' Adam Driver is the token playboy son.

Rose Byrne joins the supporting cast as that hometown girl Jason Bateman's character is supposed to — okay, okay — will definitely fall in love with. Connie Britton and her gorgeous locks will grace the screen (her hair is rumored to be getting its own credit line*). Oh, and so will Timothy Olyphant, Dax Shepard, Ben Schwartz, Abigail Spencer, and Kathryn Hahn. It's a cast list ripe for comedic success or an epic failure. If anything, the audience will get some neat pillow talk tips out of it. Although "Stick a baby up there!" might not be one of them.
*Unfortunately, Connie Britton's hair will not likely get the credit it deserves. Oh well. (Vulture)
