F-Bombs Fly Across the Table in “The Oath” Red Band Trailer

Ike Barinholtz made us laugh with his performances in both The Mindy Project and last summer’s Blockers.  Now, thanks to his penmanship and direction,  Ike is at it again, this time with the politically charged dark comedy, The Oath.

Roadside Attractions is distributing the film, which just got a hilarious red band trailer that showcases the hard-R nature of the story and dialogue, as well as the intensity that a Thanksgiving dinner can create - especially when you and your family don’t see eye to eye politically.

The trailer, which is highlighted by a long barrage of “fuck you” declarations, is simple and straightforward, laying out the plot before transitioning into a wealth of one-liners.  Based on what we see here the film will primarily take place over the Thanksgiving meal, though it does appear that chaos reigns down when a pair of government officials show up at the front door.

Co-starring Tiffany Haddish, John Cho, Carrie Brownstein, Billy Magnussen, Meredith Hagner, Jon Barinholtz, Nora Dunn, and Chris Ellis, The Oath declares itself in theaters on October 12.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
