The Longest Week Trailer: Jason Bateman and Billy Crudup Fight Over Olivia Wilde

Here's a trailer for The Longest Week, starring Jason Bateman as a wealthy, aimless heir named Conrad Valmont who is forced to move in with his equally wealthy best friend Dylan (Billy Crudup) after his parents cut him off. They do fancy best-friend stuff like play squash and wear bow ties, until Conrad decides to mess it all up by falling in love with Dylan's girlfriend (Olivia Wilde). We know that matters of the heart are painful no matter how many vintage convertibles you own, but it's still pretty hard to feel bad for either of these dudes (as Jenny Slate's character puts it: "How am I supposed to care about a group of overprivileged affluent types who go gallivanting around without any sort of a moral compass?"). Still, we'll give it the benefit of the doubt, mainly because Jenny Slate is in it. She's delightful!
