Dane Cook tears apart poster for new film

My Best Friend's Girl movie posterDane Cook really, really hates the poster for his new movie, My Best Friend’s Girl. On his MySpace page, he writes: “I’d like to inform you I had no say in this marketing campaign, but if I did, things would be different since it is obvious that this poster is boring / odd and has zero to do with the movie I performed in. Here are a few things that truly blow about my upcoming movie poster to promote the release of the film opening on September 19th — Graphics: Whoever photoshopped our poster must have done so at taser point with 3 minutes to fulfill their hostage takers deranged obligations… My head: The left side of my face seems to be melting off of my skull… Are they going for the bells palsy thing here?  Lips: It looks like I’m wearing Maybelline Water Shine Diamonds Liquid Lipstick. My characters name is now Winter Solstice and I’m a hooker with a heart of gold. Jason is my floral carrying pimp, while Kate is my first trick! Hair: It’s actually a close up shot of Tom Sellecks Magnum P.I. mustache they photo-slapped on my noggin’… Granted, one poster stinking up the joint isn’t the end of the world. Yet it sends the wrong message about our movie and I just wanted you to know, that I feel the pain. I really love the film and I know from past missteps marketing wise that the wrong poster sends the wrong audience into the theater… I just threw up all over this awful poster. Wow, wait … it looks better.” However, he does say the movie is “the best / funniest film I’ve done yet. It’s got a terrific cast. Kate Hudson, Alec Baldwin, Jason Biggs, and myself really kicked the funny around. This movie showcases our talents accordingly as it expands on them. It’s a fun R-rated flick. An edgy comedy with a dash of romance… Hey … I love my new movie.”

    Dane Cook should spend less time complaining about how he looks in the poster and more time on how truly one-dimensional he is as an “actor.” Oh wait, he’s a “comic.” Truth be told, seeing him try to act does make me laugh.

    Dane Cook is a friggin no talent loser, who is not funny at all. Who cares about what he said.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if this is just another part of teh marketing campaing. Seeign how studios are trying all kinds of different things to promote their films.
    I’m sure public interest in the movie increased.

    The poster does look like a high school put it together.
