Craig Thomas Feb 8, 2017

Here's why Netflix's Santa Clarita Diet, with Drew Barrymore, deserves to be on your list (though not necessarily as a dinner companion).

Coming Distractions: Bob Odenkirk is a greeting card writer on the run in the Girlfriend’s Day trailer

17 January 2017 4:12 PM, PST | | See recent The AV Club news »

Pioneering the new genre of greeting card comedy noir, Netflix has released a trailer for Bob Odenkirk’s new dark comedy Girlfriend’s Day. The film sees Odenkirk play a down-on-his luck penner of smarmy odes to mothers, fathers, and all the other standard recipients of Hallmark’s industrially packaged warmth, whose life takes a turn for the surreal when the government announces a greeting card contest for a new holiday, and all the best entrants wind up dead.

Besides the pleasure of Odenkirk as a deadpan, bumfight-loving former romantic, Girlfriend’s Day is stuffed with recognizable comedy names. Andy Richter, June Diane Raphael, Natasha Lyonne, Toby Huss, and even Odenkirk’s old Breaking Bad co-star Steven Michael Quezada all stop by to turn his hapless protagonist’s life into a saccharine-tinged hell. Girlfriend’s Day debuts (of course) on Valentine’s Day, February 14.

First Trailer for Netflix's Film 'Girlfriend's Day' Starring Bob Odenkirk

17 January 2017 2:20 PM, PST | | See recent news »

"I hate optimistic people. They bum me out with their upbeat attitude." Netflix has unveiled a trailer for a dark comedy called Girlfriend's Day, co-written by and starring Bob Odenkirk as a greeting card writer. The wacky plot involves Odenkirk getting entangled in a web of murder and deceit as writers vie to create the perfect card for a new holiday: Girlfriend's Day. It's described as a "clever and quirky story about love, loss and the worst place to get a paper cut." The full cast includes Amber Tamblyn, Natasha Lyonne, Ed Begley Jr, Stacy Keach, Rich Sommer, June Diane Raphael, Andy Richter, Stephanie Courtney and Echo Kellum. This looks much darker and weirder than expected, but I'm not so sure about this one. Here's the trailer (+ poster) for Michael Paul Stephenson's Girlfriend's Day, from Netflix's YouTube: Ever wonder who penned the perfect words to the Mother's Day card you sent last year? »

Andy Richter is everything you wanted in a high school drama teacher -- or everything you wanted to avoid.

Unfortunately, Sam gets cast as Clarice's understudy in the production, prompting Heather (Betsy Brandt) to try and confront Julius about the decision.

"Look, Mrs. Hughes. If this is about the part of Clarice, I can't discuss it," Julius tells Heather while running rehearsals. "We at the school have a strict Pnis policy. We're very firm!"

"You have a what?!" Heather asks, clearly confused.
