While we appreciate the mid-trailer appearance by Jenny Slate to make a self-aware point about "The Longest Week" centering on rich people with petty problems, thus far at least, it's not enough to save the first impression that this upcoming comedy is well, about rich people with petty problems.

The Longest Week

While we appreciate the mid-trailer appearance by Jenny Slate to make a self-aware point about "The Longest Week" centering on rich people with petty problems, thus far at least, it's not enough to save the first impression that this upcoming comedy is well, about rich people with petty problems.

Jason Bateman, Billy Crudup and Olivia Wilde star in this one about Conrad Valmont, heir to a vast fortune who has been doing not much of anything, living on a handsome weekly allowance. But suddenly he gets cuts cut off—oh no!—and has to move in with his best bud, Dylan. The problem? Conrad immediately falls for his Dylan's girlfriend Beatrice. Fast forward a bit and complications ensue and beautiful people wearing expensive clothes have sorta existential problems about trying to be decent human beings. Hilarious!

"The Longest Week" opens on September 5th. Watch below. [Vlicious]
