Brother Nature positions Bobby Moynihan (who?) in the ‘Jack Black wasn’t available role’ as the unwelcome and unwanted Todd. However, as the trailer progresses, there looks to be just enough in this that’s worth watching.
Roger (Taran Killam), a straight-laced politician has big plans to propose to his dream girl (Gillian Jacobs) at her family’s lake house. But everything goes awry when he meets his potential brother-in-law Todd (Moynihan): a full-time camp counselor with a heart of gold and a wild sense of fun, pining to be Roger’s best friend, and ultimately catapulting him into a series of unfortunate events. As Roger tries to take a stand amidst outrageous fishing excursions, propulsive water jetpacks and American history-themed musicals, he realizes that being a part of a new family may be more difficult than he’d thought.
Directed by Osmany Rodriguez and Matt Villines, the fact a below-average comedy needs two directors speaks volumes. Written by Mikey Day, Cameron Fay and Taran Killam, the film also stars Rachael Harris, Rita Wilson and Bill Pullman (Independence Day Resurgence)
Brother Nature is released in the US on September 9th, but as of yet doesn’t have a UK date.
