    Here's The First Trailer For "Father Figures" And It Looks Funny AF

    The fact that this wasn't officially titled "Paternity Quest" is heartbreaking to me.

    So today we got our first full-length look at Father Figures, a new comedy starring Owen Wilson and Ed Helms.

    The film was originally titled Bastards, which is still not as good as Paternity Quest (yes, I know they say it in the trailer, but I will never be over this pun).

    The comedy follows two adult brothers as they discover that their mom may have ~fudged the truth~ about who their real father was, sending them on "Operation: Who's Your Daddy?" to find the truth.

    The whole thing kind of sounds like a non-musical, raunchier version of the Mamma Mia! plot, and it honestly looks pretty fucking funny.

    The bumbling brothers are played by Ed Helms and Owen Wilson.

    Glenn Close plays their mother, who was apparently DYNAMITE in the sack back in her day.

    Genuinely believable, as she is a queen...or should I say GLENN-UINELY believable.

    And the prospective fathers (or, at least the ones shown in this trailer) are played by J.K. Simmons, Terry Bradshaw, Ving Rhames, and Christopher Walken.

    FR this cast, though.

    But we'll have to wait to find out who the daddy is until Father Figures heads to theaters Dec. 22nd, 2017!
