Q: Tell us about Thanks for Sharing...
Stuart Blumberg: Thanks for Sharing is the story of 3 men who are in a 12 step recovery program for sex addiction in New York City and it tells the story of how through their friendship and their fellowship and their struggles, they help each other recover and be the best people they can be.
Q: Can you walk us through each storyline?
Sb: Sure. There is the character that Mark Ruffalo plays, named Adam, and Adam is a successful environment consultant who has been in the program for about 5 years. And he had a really sort of tough, checkered past, full of lots of sort of dark stuff and when he got into the program he »

If you checked Our 11 Most Anticipated Films We Can't Wait to See at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, then you already know a bit about They Came Together, and you know that it's the film I'm most excited to see. Wet Hot American Summer director David Wain returns to the indie festival with his loving, romantic comedy parody that stars Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler in a You've Got Mail love story situation. The first poster takes the space usually reserved for accolades from film critics and replaces them with simple facts from a story that Deadline wrote about the film. Ed Helms does indeed star in the film. Here's the first poster for David Wain's They Came Together from BuzzFeed (watch a clip there too): They Came Together is directed by David Wain (Wet Hot American Summer, The Ten), who also co-wrote the script with comedy cohort Michael Showalter »

Spoofs have become weak over the last decades. Satirical swipes and lampooning of generic conventions have made way for tasteless toilet humour and irrelevant pop-culture references. Fortunately, it looks as though They Came Together, the upcoming romantic comedy starring Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler, may very wellbe the shot in the arm that the genre needs. Judging by this simple clip and the fantastic poster, the comedy focuses on exactly what is being spoofed.
They Came Together comes from the writers of cult classic Wet Hot American Summer, David Wain and Michael Showalter. The poster contains the usual quotes from industry personel, only this time they are taken from news articles that state facts. Meanwhile, even David Wain’s press release is absolutely hilarious:

Filmmaker David Wain’s reputation in the comedy world has seen a steady increase since the release of his first feature film Wet Hot American Summer, as he has followed it up with well-received movies such as The Ten and Role Models, as well as working on shows such as The State and Childrens’ Hospital. Many of Wain’s fans were intrigued to learn that he was back to working on another film, interest which was further piqued by the announcement of Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd in the lead roles. Wain takes on directing duties once again, splitting writing duties with Michael Showalter. The first clip from the movie, which will be making its debut at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, has now been released, and can be seen below.

David Wain and Michael Showalter, the team that brought us Wet Hot American Summer, has a new comedy coming to Sundance this year called They Came Together. The movie stars Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd, and the movie is supposed to be spoofing romantic comedies. I'm not really a big fan of spoofs, but there is smart way to make a spoof and a stupid way to make one. It looks like they did this one right.
After having already made world-changing cinematic statements on adolescence (Wet Hot American Summer), religion (The Ten), service (Role Models), and community (Wanderlust), I teamed up with Michael Showalter to take on a topic that (to our knowledge) has yet been seen in the movies: Romance — particularly heterosexual romance between two white people.
Our next idea was to mix this romance story with humor – so you could almost call this a Romantic-Comedy, so to speak. »

The romantic comedy genre is both an easy target and somehow difficult to spoof properly. We have high hopes, however, for Role Models writer-director David Wain, who is putting the box office disappointment of Wanderlust behind him by putting two of his Wet Hot American Summer ensemble, Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd, back together for They Came Together. The first clip is below.They Came Together takes – well, rips – a page from The Shop Around The Corner and remake You’ve Got Mail for the tale of small business owner Molly who somehow finds love with corporate titan Joel (Rudd). And yes, they apparently both like fiction. Small world!With the movie due to premiere at Sundance, Wain has also released a typically witty director’s statement: “After having already made world-changing cinematic statements on adolescence (Wet Hot American Summer), religion (The Ten), service (Role Models), and community (Wanderlust), I »
Ahead of its debut at Sundance in a week and a half’s time, the first clip and poster have debuted over on BuzzFeed, giving a great first look at the kind of comedy we can expect.
They Came Together relates the epic love story of Joel, a corporate executive for Candy Systems and Research, a mega candy store chain, and Molly, the owner of a small sweet shop called Upper Sweet Side. When Joel is tasked with shutting down Molly’s mom-and-pop operation, »

We're going to be seeing a lot of films at Sundance this year, but as any festivalgoer will tell you, you can't see them all. Scheduling complications always come into play, but it still stings that we're going to miss David Wain's latest, They Came Together. The rom-com send-up stars Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler, and as you can see from the first clip, this is Wain operating in the absurd style of The State, Wet Hot American Summer, and Stella rather than his more traditional features like Role Models and Wanderlust. Also, the poster will easily be one of the best of 2014, and I hope it gets used in the wide release. Hit the jump to check out the poster and clip. The film also stars Ed Helms, Cobie Smulders, Max Greenfield, and Christopher Meloni. They Came Together will make its world premiere at Sundance on January 24th. »
