Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson shared an interesting if bizarre chemistry as a human-operating system couple in Spike Jonze’s “Her,” but replace Johansson’s voice with that of John C. Reilly’s Dr. Steve Brule, and things get weird–hilariously weird.
A trailer for the film with Reilly’s character from the Adult Swim comedy “Check It Out! with Dr. Steve Brule” instead of the voice of Johansson reveals what a bromance between Brule and Phoenix’s Theodore Twombly would look like. (Hint: it’s awkward).
Check out the hilarious reimagining of the film with the ignorant, childlike Brule as Twombly’s love interest.
