Please, Jack Black. Stop with the Jive Dancing

Below is the spectacularly unfunny trailer for The Year One. I'm sure the idea was a good one at some point: Put Michael Cera and Jack Black into prehistoric civilization, bring in a few of the usual suspects to lend it some more comedic credibility (David Cross and Paul Rudd, in his 764th role this year), and let them riff. Unfortunately, Harold Ramis clearly doesn't have it anymore -- the trailer makes The Year One look like a bad Movie Movie, and either the casts' improvisation skills were lacking, or else the script was truly atrocious. I mean, when you can't even make a decent trailer, you're in trouble.

And you know what's even more terrifying about how miserably unfunny this movie looks? Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg co-wrote it with Harold Ramis. You know what they're writing next? Ghostbusters III.

God help us all.
