A few years ago, David O. Russell, most recently popular for hit films like Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle set out to make a movie that kept getting hit with budget and production issues and stopped filming right before the most important scene. The film in question, originally titled Nailed (which is more clever than what they later came up with), but is now Accidental Love (see?) is finally seeing the light of day after Millennium Entertainment took the broken pieces and glued it back together and has given us the first look at the film in the trailer below.

Accidental Love, which stars an impressive cast that includes Jake Gyllenhaal, Jessica Biel, James Marsden, Bill Hader, Tracy Morgan, and Catherine Keener, is about a small-town waitress who gets a nail in the head. This causes her to act unpredictably. After attempting a surgery that would remove the nail, the doctors won’t operate on her because she has no insurance. This sends her to Washington, DC, where she meets a young and gullible senator and tries to vouch for healthcare, but falls in love with him instead.

The trailer is very oddball and is full of crazy shenanigans that might play to laughs with the audience, but since the film was never actually completed, it’ll be interesting to see what Millennium Entertainment has put together to make the movie work. The film opens February 10th and you can check out the fun trailer below.
