Very good movie, funny and sweet in its own peculiar way. Rex delivers, and the rest of the cast are accompanying him optimally. Not as strong and effective as Florida Project in my book, but fans of Baker's style should definitely not miss it.

It looks a lot better than LP, tbh. At least it's a better, more effective trailer.

A more conventional trailer, to be sure.

(Anyone see any giant GHOULARDI signs painted on a wall in LP?)

The first song, what is it and where have I heard it before?

It's driving me crazy

Unless you're talking about the instrumental part at the beginning of the trailer, the part with the girl singing is an acoustic cover of NSYNC's "Bye Bye Bye," which then transitions to the actual NSYNC song.

No, I was talking about the instrumental part. Is that from the OST? Because it definitely reminds me of something

Edit: I might be thinking of something from Juno, lol

Badlands.

And echoes of True Romance.
