In this exclusive clip, Hough's character Lamb Mannerheim takes her first shot of booze – served by a bartender played by Russell Brand – with humorous results. Paradise also features Academy Award-winner Octavia Spencer (The Help), Academy Award-winner Holly Hunter and Parks and Recreation star Nick Offerman. It was written by Oscar-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody (Juno) and its official trailer can be seen here
