Sybarite: The Adventures of Pluto Nash
"In space, no one can hear you laugh."


Sometimes I think the marketing guys are just throwing chum to the critics. When that movie came out, I imagine thousands of reviews starting with "In the theater showing Pluto Nash, no one can hear you laugh either."

I will say that I thought some of those taglines were pretty good, and the "author" was just stretching to meet a deadline.

Specifically "Your paranoia is real" is pretty damn good considering the movie.

Also:

The problem? The tagline refers to the unnamed, unknown "he" of the film - for the record, it's the formidable George C. Scott, playing a marine biologist/linguist who teaches dolphins to speak English in high-pitched dolphin-squeaky voices - instead of focusing attention on the real draw of the movie: a dolphin assassin. Repeat: a dolphin assassin!

First, it's not exactly a giant leap to assume the "he" refers to George C. Scott, the star of the movie, whose name is on the damn poster. Second, the tagline specifically mentions there is a dolphin assassin. What the f?

This link makes me irrationally angry.

Arlington Road was the worst piece of shiat horribad movie.... with the best goddamn ending. That movie was way, way too bad to deserve an ending that good.

I don't see what the problem is with the "Sisterhood of Traveling Pants" tagline. It's an incredibly sappy movie, but the tagline pretty much sums up the plot. What am I missing?

I can't find it anywhere, but I swear there was a movie with the tagline "In space, EVERYONE can hear you scream." Maybe it was a secondary tagline or it was just something that was said in a trailer. I remember it distinctly because it was just about the dumbest thing I'd ever heard.

Anyone have any clue what I'm talking about?

Just doesn't use the word "scream."

Sounds like a variation of the proposed tag line for Alien 3 (when it was supposed to take place on Earth): "On Earth EVERYONE can hear you scream"

Nitpicking here, but its pretty bad grammar. It's trying to say something along the lines of "your paranoia is confirmed".

"Your paranoia is real" is meaningless. Of course its real. It exists. It may be irrational or rational... but its certainly real.

Yea, I understand that. I just think that "Your paranoia is real" is much more snappy and bold than "Your paranoia is understandable considering the events occurring, and it happens that your suspicions, as unlikely as they were, turned out to be correct."

I think I read somewhere that was going to be the original tag. Too long or something. Would have got me to the theatre!

Arguably the worst tagline in history, this reads as if 1) it's perhaps missing a critical chunk of verbiage, e.g., "Talking Just Causes Witnesses to Die!" or 2) as if the phrase was first written in English; was translated into another language; and was then clawed back into English by someone who had not slept for several days. And had a raging fever. And did not write English all that good.


wat?

That project failed because the dogs just dove under their own tanks.
