So Dax Shepherd has directed his first feature-length comedy, "Brother's Justice," and after recently unspooling at the Austin Film Festival he's drawn the big guns, sending the trailer over to Deadline to try and help land some distribution for the film.

The wacky premise has the cast playing versions of themselves as Dax decides to leave comedy and become a mixed martial arts star. The catch? He has no training! Let the hilarity ensue. Honestly, we barely smirked though this thing as everyone strains for laughs. You know you're scrambling for comedy when Tom Arnold is one of the featured stars. Bradley Cooper, David Koechner and Jon Favreau all have parts as well but the meta-Hollywood laughs feel like something we've seen done about a hundred times before.

As Deadline notes, the bumbling martial arts guy thing has sort of been done already via Danny McBride's hugely overrated "The Foot Fist Way" but we suppose there's room for one more. You can see for yourself if Dax brings the funny by watching the trailer after the jump.
