Sundance: They Came Together Interviews with Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Max Greenfield, Ellie Kemper & Jason Mantzoukas
If you like your comedies extra spoofy, you’ll love They Came Together, the latest outrageously funny collaboration from Wet Hot American Summer team, writer-director David Wain and writer Michael Showalter.
Set in New York and starring Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler, They Came Together is a rom-com spoof which follows what happens when Poehler’s indie sweet shop is threatened by the big, bad corporate candy store Rudd works for.
Flicks And The City caught up with the stars of the film at its Sundance premiere. Here’s what they had to say…
