TRAILER REVIEW: Justin Timberlake Touches A Urinal In The R-Rated “Palmer”


HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA — In an attempt to recapture the silver screen magic he brought to 2008’s The Love Guru, Justin Timberlake is back in front of the camera for Palmer (2021). The Apple TV+ original film, directed by Fisher Stevens, stars Justin “Justin Timberlake” Timberlake, Ryder Allen, Alisha Wainwright, June Squibb, Juno Temple, and urinal. Check out the trailer below.

If you don’t have time to watch the trailer, here’s what Palmer is about:

“After 12 years in prison, former high school football star Eddie Palmer returns home to put his life back together—and forms an unlikely bond with Sam, an outcast boy from a troubled home. But Eddie’s past threatens to ruin his new life and family.”

Sounds dramatic! But by the looks of it, Timbo the Himbo is bringing the acting chops to match this heartfelt tale of redemption. The rest of the cast doesn’t look too shabby either.

However, we couldn’t help but notice that at one point in the trailer, Justin Timberlake’s character, ostensibly a school custodian, touched a urinal. Observe below.

Given the extremely close proximity between Timbo the Himbo and the urinal, we feel it’s our duty to warn readers about the possibility that there could be further contact. Contact that is not suitable for general audiences.

You may be thinking, “c’mon, aren’t we jumping to conclusions a little quickly, here?”

What would you conclude about the film’s R rating?

That tells us all we need to know. Viewer discretion is advised. Take heed.

MEN’S HUMOR CONSENSUS: We have not seen the film. We cannot say for sure that something explicit does or does not occur between Justin Timberlake and the urinal. We are simply warning viewers that they should be prepared for the movie to contain an objectionable scene featuring Timbo the Himbo doing something to a urinal that you wouldn’t necessarily want to show your family. Otherwise, Palmer looks like it has potential to be a major awards contender!

Palmer is coming exclusively to Apple TV+ on January 29th, 2021.
