“Fun Mom Dinner”

The Momsemble comedy goes indie with this Sundance farce from director Alethea Jones and writer Julie Rudd, which released a raucous first trailer today. It’s full of the kinds of shenanigans one might expect from a comedy about moms letting loose for an epic night: Flying poop, competitive bickering, clueless dads, and a trip to a weed dispensary.

Toni Collette and Molly Shannon lead a feisty mom group that includes Bridget Everett (“Patti Cake$”) and Katie Aselton (“The Gift”). The rest of the cast is like a who’s who of indie comedy: Adam Scott, Rob Huebel, Paul Rudd, Paul Rust, and John Early round it out. There’s even a bartending Adam Levine thrown in there. In this short glimpse, we see Collette playing against type as Kate, the mom who thinks she’s too good for the group festivities. The actresses have great chemistry; with Shannon as the friendly one, Everett as the sassy one, and Aselton as the amiable one caught in the middle.
