Hollywood, you are officially the worst

13 Dec

What the hell is wrong with America? Do we have to remake every decent piece of entertainment that comes out of other countries to make it more ‘accessable’ (stupid) for American viewers? Let the Right One In, Lost in Austen, Being Human and now this:

Has become this:

“This is one sad family.” What? Did whoever write that go to school and major in writing obvious taglines that I think are supposed to be sarcastic but are just stupid? If so, they nailed it.

Not to mention the trailer looks like they used the same exact script except they took out the believablity and replaced it with heinous overacting, which I think can be inferred just by comparing the posters. “Okay Luke Wilson, look skeptical. No, more skeptical, like really REALLY skeptical. And girl standing in the middle, look like you’ve just seen something shocking, but also look sexy. As a matter of fact, look more sexy than shocked. And guy standing next to girl in middle who isn’t Tracy Morgan, make the dumbest face possible. Perfect.”

America, please stop it.

    They should have just told Luke Wilson to look like someone told him his former acting career has been supplanted by cell phone commercials. Tracy Morgan is just Tracy Jordan on this poster. I’ve yet to determine if they’re actually two separate people.

      Hah! I know, I think I almost put Jordan instead of Morgan and had to stop and think for a minute. As for Luke…fallen so far my friend (from Old School? yes, from Old School).

    I was studying something else about this on another blog. Interesting. Your position on it is diametrically contradicted to what I read originally. I am still pondering over the diverse points of view, but I’m leaning heavily toward yours. And no matter, that’s what is so great about modern democracy and the marketplace of thoughts online.

      Oh yes, that is a great aspect of the web. Where did you read the opposing view? I would actaully like to read that.
