Ok seriously, just look at that image above. Does “The Odd Life Of Timothy Green” not seem like the most punchable movie of 2012? Well, if you need more convincing here’s the brand new trailer for the movie, and warning: if you’re a diabetic, this may send your blood/sugar levels through the roof.
Starring Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton (dude, you can do so much better than this) the Disney movie follows a couple, who after being unable to conceive a child, bury their wishes in the backyard only for some kid to grow out of the ground, come into their lives, and change them forever. You know, this is one of those movies where a kid manages to make dying people laugh, endear himself to adults and bring a little magic into the world, and we just threw up in our mouth a little bit. This seems like an unrelenting quirk fest of the highest order. Peter Hedges (“Dan In Real Life,” “Pieces Of April“) directs the movie with no fear of primary colors, while talented people like Rosemarie DeWitt, Dianne Wiest, Ron Livingston and uh, Common, round out the cast and cash some paychecks.
This drivel opens on August 15th. Watch below if you dare.
