Imagine an all star cast and a plot that lends itself to so many wonderful ideas…And then the trailer starts with an awful Snapchat joke. Maybe losing hope too early, but the rest of the trailer doesn’t quick up either. A Happening of Monumental Proportions focuses on the increasingly distressing events taking place amongst the staff, parents and students at a school’s career day.
With a cast like Common, Allison Janney, Rob Riggle, Jennifer Garner, Kumail Nanjiani, Katie Holmes and John Cho, and someone as talented as Judy Greer in the directors chair, we can only hope that this comedy has a lot more to offer than it’s awkwardly put together trailer does. That being said, the joke about the teacher and the student trying to cross each other in the hallway is genuinely hilarious.
A Happening of Monumental Proportions currently does not have a UK release date, but hits the US on 24th August.
