Woe is Me: More Bad Little Fockers Marketing

by | Oct 28th, 2010 | 1:52PM | Filed under: In My Humble Opinion, Other Bits, Trailers

Sigh. Remember the godawful trailer for Little Fockers? (If you don’t, refresh your memory here.) Now there are some bad posters to complement it.

Behold the embarrassing Photoshop work!

Little Fockers

I mean, who is Ben Stiller looking at?  ‘Cause it ain’t his on-screen father-in-law, I can tell you that much. And what’s up with the random box around the title?  Bad, bad, bad.

Here’s another one that straight-up stole its “gift-wrapped, multiple cast member” look from Love, Actually.

It’s not QUITE as bad as the first one, but those kids are scaring me. They look a little bit evil. And you know how much I can’t bear the thought of freaky little kids…

I will admit, however, that these two posters are significantly better. They’re playing off of fond memories movie-goers have of the original film, highlight the main stars, and aren’t too shabby in the airbrush department.

I still have absolutely no desire to see this movie, though. You? (If you answer in the affirmative… have you actually watched the trailer?)

    I could barely stand to watch the first film. Didn’t see the 2nd one. There’s no way I will be seeing this. I didn’t even watch the trailer. Though, I am mildly curious now that you say it’s so bad… like watching a train wreck, you can’t help yourself.

    I was hoping that it would be so bad and scary that it was a good Halloween watch, but also no just disappoiting.

    What is really scary for Halloween week? The apparent death of Redblog’s “contests”. Here’s hoping that they come back from the grave or coma or vacation or exile or limbo or whereever Locke and Erika placed the Tue/Thr 3′s, Poster Close Up, and Caption contests. It appears that only Freeze Frame has escaped.

    Umm…no. The whole “Focker” sounds like a dirty word thing was kinda funny in the first film, but it’s like they took that one gag and ran with it. I’m out on the sequels as a result.

    Are you kidding me? Did you have your funny bone forcibly removed? Ever since “American Pie” and “There’s Something About Mary,” American Comedy has figured out that the obscene, when presented innocently enough, can have you laughing so hard you’re crying. The idea of Jack ‘getting’ himself with his overly suspicious ways and then asking Greg to do something about it is truly hilarious! The only real problem so far with the movie is the title. It should be, “Meet the Little Fockers.” Anyone who has ever had to deal with in-laws gets these movies at a personal level. You marry the girl, you marry the family. These movies have a done a great job of dealing with that discomfort in a funny way. You should put yourself on the funny bone donor list. Maybe, if you list the fact that your job is being a movie critic, they’ll move you to the front of the line.
