See Hollywood Icons Crazy For Brady For The Famous Quarterback’s Film
The first trailer for 80 For Brady features four Hollywood legends in an amazing true story.
Screen legends Jane Fonda, Sally Field, Rita Moreno and Lily Tomlin are teaming up for the new comedy 80 for Brady, which features the four superstar actresses as friends who are on their way to the Super Bowl in an attempt to meet the football superstar. A first-look teaser trailer was released today, giving viewers a glimpse of the ladies’ Super Bowl shenanigans. The romantic comedy is due in theaters on February 3rd, 2023.
80 for Brady is inspired by the true story of four best friends who take a life-changing trip to the 2017 Super Bowl to see their hero, Tom Brady. Directed by Kyle Martin (The Climb), the ensemble also includes Sara Gilbert, Harry Hamlin, Glynn Turman, Bob Balaban, Ron Funches, Jimmy O. Yang, Billy Porter, Guy Fieri, Rob Corddry, Alex Moffa and Matt Lauria, among others.
The trailer starts with the legendary actresses announcing their alma maters, in the style of NFL player introductions of the sort parodied by comedy team Key & Peele. With Field, Moreno and Tomlin all listing various colleges and high schools, the intro ends with Jane Fonda proudly announcing herself as a “college drop-out.”
The trailer proper then begins, with the fab four decked out in bedazzled red and blue New England Patriots jerseys as they watch a game on TV featuring Brady. They gush over the player’s looks and even chide Fonda’s character for writing erotic fan fiction about then-Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. “It’s fan fiction,” she demures. “Very sexy fan fiction.”
The women have an epiphany: They have become too boring and decide to take a crazy trip to the Super Bowl to see the football game — and their favorite player — in action. “The Super Bowl is no place for four old women,” protests Rita Moreno’s character. Tomlin laments that Tom Brady is 40, and nearing retirement. “That’s like 80 in people years,” she says. “We’re 80 in people years,” snaps Jane Fonda.
Once they arrive in Houston, they face the difficult task of getting into the game without any tickets. Jane Fonda flirts with a character played by Harry Hamlin in an attempt to get them in, while Sally Field enters a hot-wings eating contest with Food Network icon Guy Fieri playing the competition’s emcee. Finally, they convince Pose star Billy Porter to get them in, posing as members of his back-up dancers, leading to a dance sequence when a security guard demands that they “prove it.”
At an after-party, the four senior citizens accidentally take some high-dosage edibles, causing Rita Moreno to hallucinate that everyone has turned into Guy Fieri — including herself.
The combined star power of the four Baby Boom generation super stars should be enough to propel 80 for Brady to box-office success. Lily Tomlin is an Academy Award nominee, and Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno and Sally Field are all Academy Award winners. The film looks funny and heartwarming, designed to appeal to football fans or anyone who has done anything crazy for their friends. As Sally Field says in the trailer: “Isn’t that what friendship is? To face the unknown together?”
