This one is very tricky when it comes to getting behind serious anticipation. Sure, something that is hopefully pretty funny, and Amy Schumer is still rather hot at the moment, but does this really have enough to consider it among the most anticipated films?

It does, but mainly because it could be a perfect storm moment. Katie Dippold may not be a writer that everyone is wild about right this second – because The Heat was awful… and, you know, Ghostbusters – but, she has a lot of potential herself and when she’s funny, she’s hilarious. Meanwhile, Jonathan Levine isn’t for everyone as a director either. 50/50 and Warm Bodies were pretty good, but then there’s The Night Before… and not much else.

Where this comes together, maybe, is that it has the feel of something that is more of a collaboration on the fly than a production in the usual sense. Put those already mentioned together with Goldie Hawn, Wanda Sykes, Colin Quinn, and more, and let them loose a little, and you could have gold.
