Almost a year after Patrice O’Neal died – a week before his birthday, on November 29th, 2011 – Magnet Releasing will open the comedy Nature Calls in theaters and VOD on November 9; and with that news comes a brand-new trailer today.
The raucous comedy, which as I note in the title, is/was/will be Patrice O’Neal’s last film, stars Patton Oswalt, Johnny Knoxville, Rob Riggle, and Patrice O’Neal.
Oswalt stars as Scoutmaster Randy Stevens, whose dwindling, apathetic troop ditches a scout meeting in favor of a TV-themed slumber party hosted by Randy’s brother Kirk (Knoxville), his polar opposite and arch nemesis. When Randy rounds up the boys in the middle of the night, stealing them for an highly unauthorized/unorganized trip to the woods, all hell breaks loose as Kirk pursues with a pair of gun-toting employees (Riggle and O’Neal). Drinking, nudity, mishandled fireworks and tremendously inappropriate behavior around minors ensues, in the grand tradition of comedy classics like The Bad News Bears and Meatballs.
The film was written and directed by Todd Rohal (The Catechism Cataclysm), and produced by Lisa Muskat. Filmmaker David Gordon Green executive produced with David Bausch, Michael B. Clark and John Hodges.
