Lucy Punch Co-StarsFun fact: rising funnyman Tyler Labine -- seen this year in "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes" and "A Good Old Fashioned Orgy" -- is a graduate of the semi-legendary Canadian kids TV sitcom "Breaker High." His co-star? Ryan Gosling. It's like some kind of Canuck "Mickey Mouse Club" or something. And this is all to say that Labine, Malin Akerman and Lucy Punch have come aboard the dark comedy "Cottage Country" and there is already a first look at the film.

Dry Humping, Vomit, Boobs & More We Things Learned About From The Cast Of The FilmWhen you get a group of people together who are as funny as the motley crew in "Bad Teacher," things not only get outrageous onscreen but offscreen as well. Such was the case a few days ago in Manhattan, when we joined the press to visit Lucy Punch, Thomas Lennon, Phyllis Smith and the radiant Cameron Diaz to talk about the film.

Review: 'Bad Teacher' Only Deserves A Mildly Passable Grade

After the critical and commercial success of "Bridesmaids," and an escalation in the discussion of women's place in comedy both in the more niche-y blogosphere and in mainstream popular culture (illuminated most wonderfully earlier this year in a gonzo episode of "30 Rock"), "Bad Teacher," about a foul-mouthed, irresponsible, self-centered, drug-addled teacher (who also happens to be a woman) seems particularly well-timed. And while the comedy is periodically laugh-out-loud, shoot-soda-out-of-your-nose funny, it also ultimately feels like a missed opportunity; like a substitute that breezes out of your life a semester too soon without ever making much of an impact.

Tribeca Review: 'A Good Old Fashioned Orgy' Is A Good New-Fashioned Slob Comedy

The slob comedy, an invention of the American counterculture of the sixties and seventies that tore down movies’ perception of onscreen propriety, has miraculously survived in various forms since Bill Murray and his “Saturday Night Live” cronies started smirking on the big screen. Every time someone thinks that the influence of “National Lampoon’s Animal House” can no longer be felt, a film like “The Hangover” emerges, tapping into the zeitgeist and pulling in record-breaking numbers, further establishing the modern onscreen male as proprietor of snark, juvenile tomfoolery, and general bad behavior.

Jason Sudeikis seems to have arrived out of nowhere to become one of the hottest comic actors in film right now. The "Saturday Night Live" veteran pretty much was the only redeemable factor (along with Charlie Day) in last year's Drew Barrymore rom-com "Going the Distance" and this year he's already set to star in a trio of comedic vehicles: the open relationship pic "Hall Pass," the Black List-approved "Horrible Bosses" and the ensemble comedy omnibus "Movie 43." Well, you can now add one more film into the mix.
