A Promise For October 12th: Tiffany Haddish Refusing To Sign ‘The Oath’ Will NOT Go Over Well With Her Family (Trailer)

Ahhh, nothing brings family together for holiday dinner better than lively political debate… and live voltage from a taser! Wowww… Happy Turkey Day. And the bird isn’t the only one getting cooked…

A controversial White House policy turns family member against family member in THE OATH, a savagely funny dark comedy about surviving life and Thanksgiving in the age of political tribalism. When Chris (Ike Barinholtz), a high-strung 24-hour progressive news junkie, and his more level-headed wife Kai (Tiffany Haddish) learn that citizens are being asked to sign a loyalty oath to the President, their reaction is disbelief, followed by idealistic refusal. But as the Thanksgiving deadline to sign approaches, the combination of sparring relatives, Chris’s own agitation and the unexpected arrival of two government agents (John Cho and Billy Magnussen) sends an already tense holiday dinner gathering completely off the rails. As timely as it is outrageous, THE OATH is a gleefully wicked reinvention of the traditional holiday comedy for our divisive political times.

The plotline aside, the cast attached to the story that Storm Reid and Common are set to tell…Wow. Just saying, the Happening of having to do a school Career Day talk having just LOST the job; all by itself is good film fodder. But that is nowhere near all the hijinx driving this comedy! Then toss in actors ranging from Jennifer Garner to Rob Riggle to Keanu Reeves??

Watch the trailer. Get ready to chomp popcorn and chuckle for a while.
