Watch Kevin Hart Set A Grandma On Fire As THE WEDDING RINGER


When I was in high school I used to do competitive speech and debate (you know, like all the cool kids) and a few times I competed against this really funny guy from Florida named Josh Gad.  We used to watch a tape of him competing at the National Championship tournament and just stare in awe.  This guy would obliterate everyone in the room and leave you feeling lucky to have had the privilege of seeing him make you look like an amateur.

Gad has since gone on to great success as both the original Elder Cunningham in Trey Parker and Matt Stone's amazing Book Of Mormon and as the voice of Olaf, the lovable snowman from Disney's Frozen.  Now he's got a new movie called The Wedding Ringer, which is destined to a life of being accidentally sent to Netflix users looking to revisit the glory days of Adam Sandler.  Gad plays a guy with no friends who hires Kevin Hart to be the best man at his wedding.  So it's I Love You Man meets Can't Buy Me Love.


I had extremely low expectations for this trailer.  The Goonies joke made me chuckle.  The gay dancing joke made me cringe.  Then they murdered an old lady with fire.

That's comedy.
