Get all the details on Search Party and the new Red Band trailer the flip…
The R-rated comedy starring Happy Endings alum Adam Pally and Silicon Valley stars T.J. Miller and Thomas Middleditch will be making its splash in theaters and on VOD thanks to Universal Pictures.
Search Party has strong shades of The Hangover, which seems appropriate enough considering Armstrong wrote The Hangover Part II.
A long-delayed release date isn’t always a sign that a movie is bad — plenty of perfectly good movies have been screwed by circumstances outside of their control, like confused execs or studio financial woes or real-life disasters. Thought, Search Party looks to be a funny film if you base it on the trailer below. Plus many of the films stars have reached higher levels of fame, so that may play in the movies overall success. You know how Hollywood can be.
With that said, Krysten Ritter, who is now the fawned-over star of Marvel’s best TV series, Jessica Jones, Happy Endings alum Adam Pally and Silicon Valley stars T.J. Miller and Thomas Middleditch, Jason Mantzoukas (Brooklyn Nine Nine), Alison Brie (Community), and Shannon Woodward (star of Starz upcoming Westworld Series).
Here is the synopsis:
Wedding bells threaten to break up three best friends’ long-running bromance, but they aren’t going down without a fight in Search Party, the directing debut of screenwriter Scot Armstrong (The Hangover Part II, Old School). Convinced that his buddy Nardo (Thomas Middleditch) is making the mistake of a lifetime by marrying Tracy (Shannon Woodward), Jason (T.J. Miller) puts a dramatic end to their wedding. When the furious bride decides to take her Baja honeymoon solo, Nardo follows her south of the border—where the lovesick groom is carjacked and left stranded, naked and penniless in a remote part of the Mexican desert. With no one else to call for help, Nardo sends out an SOS to Jason and their pal Evan (Adam Pally), an up-and-coming ad exec slated for an all-important business meeting the next morning. As Jason and a reluctant Evan rush to Nardo’s rescue, the trio embarks on a series of increasingly outrageous misadventures involving con artists, drug smugglers and even the Federales in this wild and wacky action comedy.
Search Party will finally, at long last, hit theaters, on demand, and digital HD on May 13.
