Movies that are nothing like they are advertised... in good and bad ways.

Have you ever watched a movie and thought "wow, that was nothing like the trailer advertised it"? This seems to happen for me often and fortunately it is usually in a good way. Often the movie trailers are so dumb or advertise the movie with certain aspects that really don't do the movie justice and don't give a good picture of what it is really about. A recent example is the movie "Bridge to Terabithia". I hesitated watching this movie when it was first released and even when it first came out on DVD because it looked more like a fantasy land story with giants etc. and I didn't think my kids would want to see it or should see it. However, when we were able to request it and get it free from our local library, I figured we would give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised that the fantasy part was really only a small part of the film and it really had a good story and I thought it was really well made. Have any of you seen it? What did you think? Do you have any examples of movies not being like they were advertised in a good or a bad way?


  • I had the exact same thoughts about this movie. It was really quite moving. I also thought it might be too much of the fantasy garbage, but was pleasantly suprised that was mostly just the sub plot.
