Just comes out of NOWHERE. Whatever remained of my childhood innocence was gone.
I read the book as a kid at school and loved it. I'd be interested in seeing the film.
then you'd be more prepared for the bleakness and the whole "we'll just have to take your word for it that there is a glimmer of hope in this film" vibe
have to say, I got pretty teary.
Totally missed the earholes and nostrils. I called trading standards obviously.
Actually, Love and Other Drugs was advertised as a rom-com, slick salesman meets kooky mentally unhinged woman, they shag. By the end of the film it was a hundred miles away from that sort of thing, and all the better for it.
No reservoirs, no dogs.
nae fucking trains
Trailer portrayed it as a knock-about comedy meets rom com. Was better than that...
Loser was portrayed in exactly the same way, and of course that's what it is, but this ignores the fact that it's ostensibly about a gang of men who lure young girls to parties, give them drugs, and rape them.
Adventures on the high seas it was not
They weren't. At all
Not a biopic of the sport-based radio presenter and erstwhile Ipswich striker after all
Not a documentary set in the paint section of B&Q
It was more of a limited company
that download was certainly not 1080p
It did not cost a billion dollars to make. (I don't think).
in morrisons earlier
Not until about half way through do you realise you're watching a superhero film.
As great as the plane crash bit is, its pretty early on in the film and the rest is about addiction
Japanese romantic comedy of manners.
when for the first 70 minutes it's like a quirky rom com
Advertised as a horror / shocker movie. Actually not a bad black comedy.
It's cunt awful.
Feel good hit of the summer. Apart from the tarring of children's eyes.
Thought it'd be a family film a la Dark Crystal. Turned out to be some violent domestic taking place during a war.
Romcom? or evidence of the failure of 70s feminist awareness?
is convinced to give up the game by living with a multi-millionaire, proving it's not about money. Or it is.
Marketed as knockabout comedy Coens. Dark as all fuck.
poor idiot brad's face still haunts me
considering it was marketed as a kid friendly horror, its more creepy than most stuff out there
Promoted as sci-fi horror. If you squint, I guess there's a bit of horror to it.
*waits for obvious (and obviously wrong) joke*
advertised as a film
not just lying to and misleading people, but to children!!!
my friend at school took a girl on a date to it, and was very angry that it wasn't a film about boxing.
