Mr.and Mrs. Smith: The trailer makes this movie look like Prizzi’sHonorwith less talented actors. Of course, I spent the whole time looking for clues as to whether Angelina and Brad were getting it on behind Jen’s back. If you ask me, we like these two stars looking their most slutty, yet the trailer has them in too many clothes. Not only isn’t there any sizzle, there’s not even any steak. Where’s the beef(cake)?
> TheInterpreter:Thank god for movie trailers. This one will save you $9. Forget even such stale dialogue as “We’ve got a situation” and “Someone might get hurt.” It clearly shows there’s even less chemistry between Nicole and Sean in this Sydney Pollack whodunit than there was between Harrison and Kristin in Pollack’s last try, the stillborn RandomHearts.Nice to know the old guy still hasn’t lost his lackluster. Since this trailer seemed like a week long, then the movie will seem like a life sentence.
ThePink Panther: All I know from the trailer is that this movie must have been made for the foreign market, because it’s all about a murder in a soccerstadium. But in a summer sorely lacking in comedy, Steve Martin paired with Kevin Kline didn’t look too painful.
Hitchhiker’sGuide to the Galaxy: This movie trailer satirizes movie trailers, but it’s too clever by half. The arch British humor isn’t of Monty Python quality. Sure, sci-fi geeks know about Douglas Adams’ classic book, but the rest of the audience won’t have a clue what this incoherent trailer is hawking. It’s like a dog’s whistle that someone heard, but not me.
