First off, I can't believe Matt Damon gained weight for a comedy! That's practically unheard of. Um ok, that said, I wasn't too sure about the plot, especially since the trailer doesn't do too good a job of laying out the details, but as it progressed, I started to see the humor in it.
Damon plays the vice president of an agri-business that's performing unethical practices. It's like Michael Clayton meets Burn After Reading, except funnier. lol I mean, think about it. What if the FBI needed an informant, but the informant was really really really dense? That opens the door for some pretty hilarious moments, from narrating their day on their hidden microphone to testing the recording device hidden in their briefcase in the middle of a board meeting. He's...sooooo special.
Expect plenty of funny supporting actors, like Tony Hale ("Arrested Development"), Scott Bakula ("Quantum Leap"), Patton Oswalt ("The King of Queens"), Melanie Lynskey ("Two and a Half Men"), Joel McHale ("The Soup"), and many more.
