A few minutes ago I was NOT at all interested in watching the upcoming movie “Couple’s Retreat”. Sure it stars Vince Vaughn, and I like the guy. But I have never seen a movie trailer that looked more like a “made for TV” movie in my life. I could’ve sworn this was a TBS movie when I first saw the trailer. Can you figure out why?
I’ll make it easy.
As soon as I see that I think of the TBS color scheme.
The font is almost the same too. I always expect the last little blue screen to say “Very Funny”. Really who makes a trailer like that?
But I learned something today that perked my interest in the movie. The director, Peter Billingsley, is the kid from A Christmas Story! That movie is a Christmas classic at my house. We watch as a family just about every year and my mom complains every time. So based on that alone I feel like I need to give the movie a chance. I’m still put-off by the advertising and the fact that it seems to be very formulaic. But Billingsley worked wonders with A Christmas Story. Maybe he has the magic touch here too.
