With the recent end of March Madness, we know sports can be a very serious thing. Luckily, not for everyone.

Intramural is the epic sports film for those who don’t really know or care much about athletics. Jake Lacy (The Office) stars as Caleb, a fifth-year senior and former college intramural champion who gave up the game after his best friend paralyzed his “little friend” on the game-winning play. Back for redemption, Caleb reunites his team in the hilarious send-up of inspirational sports movies (think training montages, lots of training montages) to face off against their rivals, reigning champs the Titans. Twilight‘s Nikki Reed also stars in a cast that includes SNL regulars Kate McKinnon, Jay Pharaoh, and Beck Bennett. Andrew Disney (Searching for Sonny) directs. Watch the trailer below: READ FULL STORY
