We’ve been renting a lot of movies over the past month; I had a couple of Blockbuster gift cards for 5 free movie rentals apiece, and realized a few weeks ago that they expired on June 30. To make matters even awesomer*, we could only use them for one rental per day, so Scott and I had to go to Blockbuster almost every day during the past couple weeks of June to use up all the rentals. While we were there, one specific movie cover kept catching my eye, and not because it looked good. It’s really one of the most unintentionally offputting movie covers I’ve seen in a long time. Enjoy!
I mean, it’s not gross or anything, it just seems like it runs entirely counter to the purpose of the movie. Clearly it’s a romantic comedy, but Sarah Chalke could not look more uninterested and vaguely queasy, and what’s-his-face just looks doofily oblivious but in a completely uncharming way. The tagline is pretty standard-issue dumb, so I’ll leave that alone, but overall it looks like it was cobbled together in Paint Shop Pro within the span of about ten minutes.
(And no, I didn’t rent it, so I can’t tell you how good or bad it actually is, but I’d be willing to bet money on painfully bad.)
*it’s a perfectly cromulent word.
