Wine Country, Amy Poehler’s movie inspired by real vacations between the SNL veteran and her famous friends, is slated to premiere on Netflix May 10.
The new trailer for the movie shows pals played by Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch, Anna Gasteyer, Paula Pell, and Emily Spivey getting into all sorts of humorous scrapes around the wineries of California’s Napa Valley. Rudolph falls off a piano at one point, their trip itineraries fly out a party bus window, and it looks like all the friends eventually wind up rolling down a big hill while wearing shirts bearing the words “Antonio’s Pizzeria.” There are a few delightful cameos sprinkled throughout this teaser: Jason Schwartzman plays a soulful paella chef, Pen15’s Maya Erskine is a waiter at a pretentious restaurant, and Tina Fey is the owner of the AirBNB where the friends are staying over the birthday weekend.
It definitely looks like a cross between Sideways and Bridesmaids, two bona fide comedy classics. Check out the trailer above and stay tuned for more updates on the release of Poehler’s feature directorial debut in the coming weeks.
