A trailer for the next Andy Samberg movie “Celeste And Jesse Forever” has just become available. Samberg recently announced that he would be leaving Saturday Night Live to pursue a film career and this may be his attempt to show his range as an actor by doing an indie romantic comedy. Take a look below and tell us what you think.
This looks like a very “cookie cutter” indie film. Although most indie trailers follow a similar format, this one looks like it is more methodical than most and honestly doesn’t look interesting. I like Rashida Jones and from the trailer it looks like she will get most of the screen time. This is a smart move because I don’t think Samberg is at a point to entirely hold his own. It’s hard for me to take Samberg seriously given that his humor is very goofy compared to other comedians. Usually I feel that [good] comical actors are an untapped resource and they often surprise us in their dramatic roles but I don’t see Samberg as one of them. I hope he can prove me wrong but as of right now I’m not interested in anything he’s doing.
