Hugh Laurie Falls For His Best Friends Daughter In First Trailer For The Oranges

May-December relationships always seem to make people uncomfortable, particularly when the older party is a man. On some level people feels like someone is being taken advantage of, even when the couple involved genuinely like each other. But do you know what's going to make an age-gap relationship even more awkward? When The man is best friends with the father of the younger woman he's dating. And that's exactly what's going on in the upcoming film The Oranges.

Yahoo! has launched the first trailer for the upcoming comedy, which has a stacked cast that includes Hugh Laurie, Oliver Platt, Leighton Meester, Catherine Keener, Alia Shawkat, Allison Janney and Adam Brody. Check it out below!

I will admit that I have a soft spot for this movie as I actually grew up one town over from West Orange, New Jersey, but even if that weren't the case there's still a lot to like here. It's great to see Laurie doing funny work again after spending so many years on House (not to say that I didn't enjoy the show) and I look forward to seeing the chemistry between him and Platt in the movie.

The Oranges was written by Ian Helfer and Jay Reiss and directed by Julian Farino. The title made its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival last year and will recieve a limited release on October 5th, courtesy of ATO Pictures.
