Go Phyllis!


  1. Go Phyllis! I hope she is a great success (not so much that she leaves us, but just so she makes lots of money and gets lots of recognition!). Phyllis is consistently one of the my favourite characters – so meek and mild and then she turns into a total viper. Love it!

  2. Agreed TobyFan! I love when she says “And you have to get two of ’em.” We love you Phyllis!

  3. My wife is a teacher, and we love Phyllis, and the writing team of Stupnitsky and Eisenberg makes us laugh on “The Office.” So, win-win-win!

  4. The Red Band trailer is kind of awesome. Phyllis swearing hard core rocks my socks.

  5. Woah! Justin Timberlake! Cameron Diaz!
    And with an all-star cast of Phyllis Smith from The Office, Jason Segel from How I Met You Mother, and Noah Munck from iCarly? It’ll be one heck of a movie!

  6. So cool – and this actually looks like it would be really funny! Phyllis is such a natural talent, I love her in the trailer and will not miss this movie given her, Gene and Lee’s involvement! (Okay, and I’ve been totally in love with Jason Segel ever since Freaks and Geeks, too.)

  7. As a teacher and an Office fan I can’t wait for this movie!! I think my co-workers and I need to go see this together!

  8. Wow. I haven’t wanted to see a Cameron Diaz movie this much in a long long time, if ever! Thanks to Gene and Lee, this looks hilarious! Also love Jason Segel. Definitely seeing it. And go Phyllis!

  9. “IT’S THE ONLY ARGUMENT I NEED, SEAN!” was hilarious, as was the “Twilight” kid. I have to see this.

  10. Go Phyllis! It looks like a good movie. Definitely in my top 5 movies to want to see.

  11. This…looks….hilarious! It’s on my calendar, I’ll be there opening weekend!

  12. I thought that Phyllis did a great job as school teacher Lynn Davies. It was a funny film, too. Modern Family fans will also appreciate Eric Stonestreet.
