Trailer Spotlight: Search Party


If you are a big fan of HBO’s Silicon Valley, then Search Party, which stars Thomas Middleditch and TJ Miller might just be right in wheelhouse. The film directed by Scot Armstrong, is a sort of action comedy in the vein of The Hangover, but mixed together with Pineapple Express. The Movie is slated for a May release and has an excellent comedic cast that includes the aforementioned Silicon Valley alums along with Adam Pally, Alison Brie, Krysten Ritter, Jason Mantzoukas, JB Smoove, and Shannon Woodward. It seems like dumb fun and the red band trailer has it’s moments but it’ll be tough to envision this film gaining traction with audiences in the early going of the Summer movie season.

Check out the trailer here!


Here is the official synopsis:

Wedding bells threaten to break up three best friends’ long-running bromance, but they aren’t going down without a fight in Search Party, the directing debut of screenwriter Scot Armstrong (The Hangover Part II, Old School).

Convinced that his buddy Nardo (Thomas Middleditch) is making the mistake of a lifetime by marrying Tracy (Shannon Woodward), Jason (T.J. Miller) puts a dramatic end to their wedding. When the furious bride decides to take her Baja honeymoon solo, Nardo follows her-where the lovesick groom is carjacked and left stranded, naked and penniless in a remote part of the Mexican desert. Helpless, Nardo sends out an SOS to Jason and their pal Evan (Adam Pally), an up-and-coming ad exec slated for an important business meeting the next morning.  During their ridiculous attempt to rescue Nardo, the trio embarks on a series of increasingly outrageous misadventures involving con artists, drug smugglers and even the Federales in this wild and wacky action comedy. Search Party opens May 13th everywhere.
