Paul Red Band: Profanity Makes Everything Better Except ...

I can’t finish that headline. After several minutes of furious brainstorming, I’m unable think of anything that isn’t better without profanity. Children’s birthday parties, church, taxes, sex, death? All better with profanity. Cupcakes, maybe — profanity doesn’t make any qualitative difference, I suppose, but even then, a cupcake would probably be more fun to eat if it were accompanied by profanity. Can anyone name one thing that is not improved by swear words?

The Paul trailer is no exception. The PG trailers already looked fun, but the Red Band trailer kicks it up a level. Sure, it’s an assortment of the usual dick-and-ball jokes, but now they’re being applied to an alien. An alien voiced by Seth Rogen.

Also, Jason Bateman is in this. You could probably say the same thing about profanity and Jason Bateman: Everything’s better with him involved.
