Neil Patrick Harris Manages to Enliven the New Trailer for The F*cks

The central gag in The Fucks, which will arrive in theaters on July 29th, is that, instead of using Shit, Piss, Fuck, Cunt, Cocksucker, Motherfucker, Tits, the adorable little blue people replace profanities with the word Sm*rf, which gets old about 12 seconds into the trailer. Because I hate the very idea of this, now and henceforth and until the end of time, I will personally reverse the joke. Profanities can continue to be replaced with the word Sm*rf whenever the film is referenced, but I will now refer to the blue people as The Fucks. La LA la La la Laaa.

Below is the new trailer for The Fucks, which stars Neil Patrick Harris and the kind-of-cute, kind-of-creepy ginger from “Glee.” The bad news is that it still looks excruciating. The good news is that, thanks to NPH, The Fucks looks only half as excruciating as previously anticipated. That is to say, where previously I’d have gnawed off both of my arms to escape watching The Fucks, now I’d only gnaw off one arm.
