Trailer for Netflix's National Lampoon Film 'A Futile & Stupid Gesture'

A Futile and Stupid Gesture Trailer

Netflix has launched an official trailer for a new film titled A Futile and Stupid Gesture, from director David Wain, who is already working with Netflix to bring you the “Wet Hot American Summer” series. The sort-of-doc film profiles Doug Kenney, the comedy wunderkind who co-created the “National Lampoon”, Caddyshack, and Animal House. It premieres at the Sundance Film Festival and hits Netflix next January. One description explains: “In the 1970s and ’80s, National Lampoon’s success and influence creates a new media empire overseen in part by the brilliant and troubled Doug Kenney.” This reminds me of the other National Lampoon documentary that played at Sundance, Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead. This is much more than just a doc as it features a full cast recreating many of the moments in Kenney’s life. Will Forte plays Kenney, and the cast includes Emmy Rossum, Domhnall Gleeson, Seth Green, Natasha Lyonne, Annette O’Toole, Paul Scheer, Joe Lo Truglio, and Finn Wittrock.
