On August 19, the world is going to be blessed with one of the greatest movies of 2016. I, of course, am talking about War Dogs, featuring Jonah Hill, Miles Teller, and Bradley Cooper. The second trailer dropped late last night, and it is a doozy.
What’s great about this movie is that Jonah Hill is fat again (when he’s at his funniest). Also this is a true story. The two kids from Miami, David Packouz (played by Teller) and Efraim Diveroli (played by Hill), had little to no college experience but became rich thanks to the government being cheap, and their company, AEY, bidding the smallest amounts on arms contracts. One had a few college credits while the other was a high school dropout.
Armed with some weed and a dream, these two became proud winners of a $300M contract to supply America’s allies in Afghanistan. I, for one, am pumped to see this movie. Plus, you have to love the little line Packouz says to his girlfriend about what they were selling.
“I thought you said you were selling bedsheets.”
“I told you and other stuff, too.”
“I thought you meant pillows.”
