Those who love the high-pitched Bernadette on The Big Bang Theory are going to get a whole heaping helping of her antics this spring when star Melissa Rauch takes the lead in the raunchy new comedy The Bronze. The film served as the opening night movie for this year's Sundance Film Festival, and some have called it a laugh riot. The first trailer has arrived, which also features a strong ensemble that includes Gary Cole, Thomas Middleditch and Cecily Strong.
Acclaimed short filmmaker Bryan Buckley directs this tale of a flawed female antihero. The movie has been compared to the hit HBO series Eastbound & Down, with Melissa Rauch starring as a once promising gymnast who has seen better days. She has no job, she still lives at home and she is firmly stuck in the past. But that's all about to change for the once Olympic hopeful named Hope Ann Greggory.
The Bronze is full of foul mouthed zingers, which is why we're getting a red band trailer. And it is most notable for a hilarious sex scene that had critics in stitches this past January. It is a wild, insane ride, and it should hit well with comedy fans when it arrives in theaters just in time for spring break. Here's the official synopsis.
"In 2004, Hope Ann Greggory became an American hero after winning the bronze medal for the women's gymnastics team. Today, she's still living in her small hometown, washed-up and embittered. Stuck in the past, Hope must reassess her life when a promising young gymnast threatens her local celebrity status."
The Bronze opens in theaters March 11, 2016. Fans of The Big Bang Theory will surely enjoy seeing Melissa Rauch become the main center of attention. Check out the first footage for this sure-to-be classic in the sports comedy genre. Then be sure to mark your calendars. This is not a movie you want to miss! (Or maybe it is, you might have better tastes than me.)
