"Marky Mark and the Fun Bunch." Precisely how Maya Rudolph came to incorrectly remember the name of Mark Wahlberg’s former music group is just one of the highlights of this great interview with her and Sam Rockwell, the two stars of 'The Way, Way Back,' the directorial debut of the writing team of Nat Faxon and Jim Rash. In the film, Rockwell and Rudolph play employees of a water park who help an awkward kid overcome some of his insecurities while he’s on vacation with his mother and her new, authoritative boyfriend. As a counterpoint to his oddly more dysfunctional domestic situation, the pair provide a stabilizing if unconventional influence on the boy, even if they aren’t quite funky.

'The Way, Way Back' premiered at Sundance and will be released by Fox Searchlight later this year.

Or maybe it comes across that way because both star Steve Carell. Now there's a trailer for the film.

Though Alexander Payne dismissed much of their original script, Nat Faxon and Jim Rash (aka Dean Pelton from 'Community') are Academy award winners. And so their next project lets them direct, and for their feature film debut 'The Way, Way Back' they plan on reteaming 'Little Miss Sunshine' stars Steve Carell and Toni Collette.
