Universal Pictures has released the movie trailer for It’s Complicated, the new movie from Nancy Meyers writer/producer of The Father of the Bride, director of the 1998 remake of The Parent Trap, What Women Want, Something’s Gotta Give, and The Holiday. Yes, it’s essentially an “old person’s romantic comedy.” If you like Meyer’s other films, this might be of interest. Otherwise, you might want to forward the link to your mom or dad. Even talented funny-men like Steve Martin, John Krasinski and Alec Baldwin couldn’t drag me into a theater for this film. I guess I’m probably not the target audience. Watch the trailer after the jump.

MGM has released a new trailer for The Pink Panther 2. Steve Martin returns as Inspector Jacques Clouseau, who this time teams up with a squad of International detectives who are just as bumbling as he is. Their mission: Stop a globe-trotting thief who specializes in stealing historical artifacts. I understand that this film isn’t made for someone in my demographic, which is kinda strange considering the 1960′s original was geared older, and even nominated for an Academy Award and a Golden Globe. I’m a big fan of Steve Martin (just got done reading listening to his new audio book, which I highly recommend), so it hurts me to watch him in something like this. Also, the film was shot in Boston, not France, which many Bostonians (like myself) will quickly notice.
