How Do You Know trailer, you guys:

It’s kind of a worn out comedic trope to refer to something as the “Sophie’s Choice” of whatever, but I’m pretty sure this is the “Sophie’s Choice” of make-believe celebrity boyfriends, right ladies? LITERALLY. I guess if it was Paul Rudd and James Franco it would be even harder, because who can think when smoke is pouring out of their vagina? Anyway: to help you decide, picture it this way: you and Owen Wilson and Paul Rudd have all just been hustled at gunpoint off the train at Dachau, and a guard says that you can only bring one of them inside the concentration camp with you, and the other one will be taken away into a separate line for immediate execution. Who do you choose? (Sophie’s Choice jokes, you guys. Literally the funniest jokes. Isn’t that right, my ancestors?) Quick! Choose now! The guard is tapping his boot!

  1. The choice between James Franco and Paul Rudd would be fucking impossible for me. How do you know me so well Gabe?

  2. This is a dark year for DC’s image in the entertainment industry. We get this bullshit, the worst Top Chef season ever, Real Housewives, C-SPAN, Salt, and surely some others I’m forgetting.

  3. Okay, scenario, you’re in a room with Paul Rudd and Owen Wilson’s characters from How Do You Know and you have a gun with only one bullet. Who do you shoot?

    Answer: yourself.

  4. I wish I could down vote this post…

  5. Hands down, Paul Rudd. He is in my celebrity top five to-do list…

  6. I hope she ends up with Jack Nicholson.

  7. Neither. Now if I had to pick between members of The Expendables, that would be a problem.

  8. “You lure me in with Comicstripgum and then this?” -Art Spiegelman

  9. Spoiler alert: she ends up with the doorman.

  10. No contest. Rudd FTW.

  11. I can’t choose! What if I choose poorly?!?!

  12. this is kind of a sloppy trailer.

  13. I dunno guys. Which way is her chin pointing most?

  14. There IS no choice here!

    Have you seen Owen Wilson’s nose? The first time I saw him in a movie I was like “Why are they not mentioning that this guy has some weird nose prosetetic? Did he get punched right before the opening credits and I missed it?”

  15. does this movie take place in real time? because shes wearing the same “im eating ice cream” blue sweatshirt in every scene.

  16. phew…i was worried our generation wouldn’t get its own ‘It’s Complicated.’

  17. More like Bro-phie’s choice. #neededtobesaid #noitdidnot

  18. She sure loves that oversized off the shoulder sweatshirt look

    • that is the time honoured for beautiful women to indicate that “if I wasn’t so damn perfect, I’d look shitty right now because I’m SOOOOOOOOOOOO sad, right? I mean, look! it doesn’t even cover both shoulders!”

      women such as myself don’t need a signal because we are covered in mud, tears, and hobos.

  19. Can I actually choose BY fucking?

  20. Finally, the sequel to “Overnight Delivery”!

  21. Soundtrack by Hans Zimmer! I am excited about the possibility of a slowed down take on ‘Torn’ by Natalie Imbruglia.

  22. Reese, you are too old for this. (She is not old, just too old for this.)

  23. What did Reese Witherspoon do? It took me until the 6th or 7th shot of her before I realized it was her. She’s all gaunt and olsen-twin-y. What’s the deal?

    Besides that tho, Paul Rudd is so awesome. I’ve been itching to watch Wet Hot American Summer, The Baxter, and Role Models lately. I don’t own two of these for NO reason whatsoever.

  24. The right answer is Paul Rudd, because Owen Wilson, with his Aryan good look, would never have been put on a train to Dachau in the first place, whereas DJ Bat Mitzvah would definitely need a rescue.

  25. I think the real question is – Celery Man or Nude Tayne?

  26. At least Paul Rudd knows how to use ‘literally’ properly.

  27. team paul all the way.

  28. Is it me or does Owen Wilson just really bums you out since the botched suicide attempt?

    • Absolutely agree.

      Whenever I happen to catch a bit of one of his movies on TV, the sadness is so obvious in his eyes – it’s pretty depressing.

      I read an article about this movie where Reese was praising Paul – saying that “he doesn’t have the tragic nature of the comedian, where deep down he’s a nasty person.”

      Seemed like a back-handed slap against Owen … ouch!

  29. How do you know?
    Is one Owen Wilson? ok.
    so, is the other Paul Rudd? ok.
    so…that is how.

  30. In other news, Reese is lookin FOINE. Broken homes be treatin her all kindza GOOD.

  31. I don’t know how to choose. I am confused and bamboozled by all the other parts these people have played in other romantic comedies.

    Maybe I’m stupid / probably I’m stupid: how many times can these admittedly likable actors play the same part in different movies? And not have people get sick of it?

    Paul Rudd, Broken-nose Wilson, Reese…It’s as old as the hills. As The Hills. I’ve never seen The Hills. But I suspect that it gets old afer a short while of the same same same.
