Jessica Williams is busting out of her hilarious persona from The Daily Show and into the hilarious persona of The Incredible Jessica James.  Netflix released the official trailer for the film on Friday.

Chris O’Dowd stars opposite Williams.  James is a 25 year-old woman going through a ‘transitional phase’.  That phase looks pretty funny and charming as Williams literally dances all over the screen.  At first glance The Incredible Jessica James looks to be a pretty standard romantic comedy.  But, this protagonist is a confident woman trying to unapologetically find her own way; with or without the help of love or a relationship.  That’s a welcome twist.  In fact, when O’Dowd’s character says ‘I really like you’ the response isn’t ‘aw’ or ‘you had me at hello’, it’s ‘Of course you do.  Everybody does. I’m dope!’  That’s a woman to really like.

The Incredible Jessica James will be available on Netflix July 28th. 

Here’s the poster for the film.
