VERDICT: When I originally heard the premise for this, I thought it would be a dud in the states. But after watching the trailer, I truly under-estimated how insane these boys are. I laughed so hard when Pegg said the last line of the trailer: "We're just a couple of regular guys walking down the street with a small cowboy." That, plus the casting of Bateman as an MIB-type agent, and Rogen's made-for-voice-overs voice makes me amped for next Spring.
Release Date: March 18
