The official trailer dropped for the indie comedy Bernard and Huey, directed by Dan Mirvish, co-founder of the Slamdance Film Festival. Freestyle will release Bernard and Huey in select theaters starting June 8th.
Bernard and Huey is the story of roguish Huey (David Koechner) and nebbishy Bernard (Jim Rash), who are unlikely friends in late 1980s New York. Years later, a bedraggled Huey crashes at Bernard’s upscale bachelor pad. As the two reconnect, Bernard starts a relationship with Huey’s estranged daughter Zelda (Mae Whitman), an aspiring graphic novelist. Huey slowly gets his mojo back and tries to seduce various women in Bernard’s life, while reconnecting with his family. As the two friends return to their old ways, at least one of them finds himself in danger of marrying a woman old enough to be his wife. Bernard and Huey is directed by American filmmaker Dan Mirvish, co-founder of the Slamdance Film Festival, and director of the films Omaha (The Movie), Stamp and Deliver, Open House, and Between Us previously. The screenplay is written by Oscar/Pulitzer-winner Jules Feiffer.
