Kirsten Bell and Kirby Howell-Baptiste are taking extreme couponing to a new level! In the first trailer for the upcoming comedy Queenpins, which is based on a true story, Bell stars as Connie, a suburban housewife who starts an illegal coupon club alongside her best friend JoJo (Howell-Baptiste). "The system has set us up to fail.

You know who gets rewarded? People who don't follow the rules. It's time we start bending them a little," Connie says in the clip. "When you send these companies a complaint, they send you a coupon for free stuff.

All of these free coupons come from one factory." "It's like Robin Hood. We gotta steal these coupons, sell them to families who really need them," says JoJo, adding later, "We're queenpins, bitch."

Postal Inspector (Vince Vaughn).
