Poster Review: 'The Heartbreak Kid'

The poster for 'The Heartbreak Kid' shows you just how
gosh darned *hilarious* this movie is going to be, with
nothing more than a simple still image and a few
carefully selected words.

*Ben Stiller. He's *always* funny. Hey, remember how
his name was "Focker" in those movies with Robert De Niro?
Comic gold!

*Wait a second... does he have cotton in his ears?
Say, that's unusual. What sort of wacky situation
has he gotten himself into now? That lady sitting next
to him seems to be making some sort of trumpet-like
gesture with her hands. How immature! That must be
really annoying for poor Ben. She must be crazy and
obnoxious. Can't a guy get a break? And since they're
stuck in a car together, it's not like Ben can just leave.
How is he going to deal with this irritating situation?

*Finally, there's the tag line. "Love blows." That works
on so many levels. Like, at least two. Do you get it?
Do you? Think about it for a minute, and you'll probably
realize just how clever that tag line is.
I won't ruin it for you.
