We’ve seen a teaser and an international trailer for Little Fockers, the second sequel to Meet the Parents, and now there is a full theatrical trailer. What’s the difference?

Dreamworks has released the official movie trailer for Along Came Polly director John Hamburg‘s new comedy I Love You, Man, which stars Paul Rudd as a newly engaged guy sets out to find the perfect “Best Man” for his wedding. The film costars Jason Segel, Jaime Pressly, Andy Samberg, Jon Favreau, and Rashida Jones. I’m a big fan of many of the actors involved, but I just didn’t find the trailer all that funny. I also wasn’t a fan of Along Came Polly either. Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
