As a genre, Christmas movies tend toward themes of family togetherness and forgiveness, peace and goodwill. But in the hands of Evan Goldberg and Kyle Hunter, the writing/producing duo behind Neighbors and The Interview, the goodwill comes in the form of a small box of drugs given to Isaac (Seth Rogen) by his pregnant wife (Jillian Bell), and the togetherness consists of three bros painting New York City red, green and—this is a Seth Rogen movie—vomit.
In the slightly NSFW trailer for The Night Before, we meet three friends—Rogen’s Isaac, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Ethan and Anthony Mackie’s Chris—who have spent every Christmas Eve together since Ethan’s parents died. Now that Chris is famous and Isaac is preparing for a baby, the buddies are spending one last holiday together, and it’s going to be epic—although perhaps not in the way they imagined.
Throughout the course of their unconventional revelry, Isaac throws up in the middle of Mass, Ethan dons an elf suit and lady friends played by Mindy Kaling and Lizzy Caplan discuss the merits of Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball.” The Night Before hits theaters on Nov. 25, just in time for a Thanksgiving family outing.
