'The Way, Way Back' Trailer: 'The Descendants' Writers Come of Age with Some Coming of Age


Coming off the Academy Award-winning success of their Descendants script, and the lesser commercial success of their respective sitcoms, Jim Rash and Nat Faxon are giving directing a shot with The Way, Way Back. The film is essentially just a classic boy-meets-girl-at-a-summer-job coming-of-age story, but in the mode of Adventureland, it pads it out with enough likable ringers to keep things interesting. Little Miss Sunshine's Toni Collette and Steve Carell reunite under the flag of indie dramedy to play the kid's mom and would-be stepfather, while Sam Rockwell, Allison Janney, Maya Rudolph, Rob Corddry, Amanda Peet, and AnnaSophia Robb fill out the cast. Rash and Faxon also appear, and Rash puts out an idiotic outfit to dance and squeal. After Community, that's just something we expect every time we see him.

Here's the trailer:
