Lol In this case it means exactly what it says. The film is a disaster/survival/romance.

Is Idris Elba Icelandic for dog taco?

Where ya been, subby? The trailers for that movie have been everywhere.
I'm guessing in the book the movie is based on, things didn't go well for the dog.

Saw the TV commercial.   She seems to be aging in reverse.

My wife wanted to know if the dog survives before anything else.

Why?  Is there something wrong with the dog?  I know.  It's probably too stringy.

I'm disappointed by that, in two ways.

Is she trying to say she didn't give Harvey Weinstein a blow job?

Kate Winslet is batshiat crazy. I have first hand knowledge of this but due to non disclosure agreements and such, I can't offer up any details. Just read her biography and who her current husband is, how many times she has been married, and how many kids she has by various husbands and how old she is and I think you will get the picture.

You don't eat sweater puppies.  They're categorized as catch-and-release.

She has marvellous judgement, if not particularly good taste.

Probably not with all of those kids and nannies running around. Maybe ten years ago, which might have produced some of those kids.

Dozens of fictional people can die in a plane crash but they won't go see the movie if a fictional dog doesn't make it? What is wrong with people?

Dogs and babies are adorable, mostly defenseless, and have no standing or agency in an adult human world.  You don't fark with the innocent and expect to be viewed well.
