New Trailer for

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QaotsUAehbs

Plot: The story revolves around Harold (Spencer Breslin), a 14-year-old teenager with a very early on-set of male-pattern baldness, and how he adapts to his aging look. Harold befriends his high school's janitor Cromer (Cuba Gooding, Jr.) and has a nerdy best friend (Nikki Blonsky).

I might see the movie just because of Nikki. She seems to have a good role in the film and it looks like we can see some more of her dancing. The rest of the movie seems kind of okay to see. If I see more footage, I might decide. It also looks like Nikki's little brother Joey has a small role as Malcolm.

Looks INSANELY awful.

Even though I love Nikki, I'm definitely going to pass on this one.

I'm also a big Fred Willard and Rachel Dratch fan to, though I still won't see it, cause it does look terrible

I don't find the concept funny at all, because I immediately make the connection to kids who lose their hair due to cancer treatments. You think someone would have thought about that before making this... But i don't know, maybe I'm alone in thinking that.

This was an SNL short film four years ago:

Oh wow. I actually remember that. Wasn't funny then either.

T. Sean Shannon wrote the film and the SNL sketch so after he left SNL he wrote this movie based on the short film he wrote for the show

Holy Crap. That looks terrible. I dunno what to make of it, it appears to be very very risque and irreverent (all the nudity and sex jokes? boxing a bear?) but it's just...bad looking
...very very bad looking

like the kinda bad that would elicit a serious "who would make this film?" comment.
You're reminding me of people you hear at the movies asking questions every ten seconds, "Who is that? Why is that guy walking down the street? Who's that lady coming up to him? Uh-oh, why did that car go by? Why is it so dark in this theater?" - FindingNamo on strummergirl

"If artists were machines, then I'm just a different kind of machine...I'd probably be a toaster. Actually, I'd be a toaster oven because they're more versatile. And I like making grilled cheese" -Regina Spektor

"That's, like, twelve shows! ...Or seven." -Crazy SA Fangirl

"They say that just being relaxed is the most important thing [in acting]. I take that to another level, I think kinda like yawning and...like being partially asleep onstage is also good, but whatever." - Sherie Rene Scott

Wow, they are really working that poster aesthetic. First 40 Year Old Virgin, then Knocked Up, then The Rocker and now the almost identical version above.

I am kinda interested in this movie.

That does look awful, but Blonsky looks kind of adorable even if I tend to find her quite annoying off-camera.
I'll definitely skip this one, but hope that it doesn't hurt Blonsky's career.

the story could be decent if it has the right script but if it doesn't it will be terrible
