The First Lady on the Fourth Anniversary of Let’s Move! (by The White House)
Well, both Amy Poehler and Michelle Obama said they are best friends so IT MUST BE TRUE.
Like, you know, whatever.
And Amy Poehler won the Golden Globe.
I’m so psyched for her. It was so fun to celebrate her that night. I feel like she is always the funniest person in the room and whenever she doesn’t win I’m like, How can the funniest person not win? So finally the funniest person won, which I thought was pretty cool. It was just awesome to have our leader up onstage just leading the night and crushing it like she does.

|Wain:||There's a reason why this sort of movie works, so it's a hard line when you're trying to divert from the formula but still stick to a story that's satisfying to the audience. In our case, though, we really are trying to undercut everything: It's a true, silly, insane comedy that more than anything is spoofing the genre and making fun of it. At the same time, we have Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler at the center of it, who have a true chemistry and charm and affection for each other that you can see onscreen and that kind of overrides the spoof elements.|
