Brigsby Bear Review

Normally you’ll see Kyle Mooney on television whenever there’s a new episode of Saturday Night Live. He’s one of the primary cast members, and he’s made quite a name for himself as one of the driving forces behind the next generation of SNL Digital Shorts, following the departure of Andy Samberg and his Lonely Island counterparts Akiva Shaffer and Jorma Taccone. Now they’ve all teamed up, along with some other SNL talents, to deliver one of the comedy gems of the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.

Brigsby Bear is an offbeat, original comedy about a 25-year-old man who has his entire world thrown into upheaval when he learns a terrible secret about his parents and everything he’s been taught by them.

Intramural

The Saturday Night Live stars are the last people you’d expect to see in an inspirational sports drama, but they’re the perfect folks to send up the inspirational sports drama subgenre. Kate McKinnon, Jay Pharoah, and Beck Bennett all make appearances in the first Intramural trailer, which, as the title suggests, takes on the world of intramural college sports.

The video plays like a sort of indie Dodgeball, down to a shot of a cranky, violent dude in a wheelchair barking orders at his scrappy team. Watch the new Intramural trailer after the jump.
