  • TV Movie Spots: Something that annoys me

    Ok so does anyone else but me notice this about commercials for movies on tv. One week you may see a tv spot for a comedy that's "the funniest movie of the year". Two weeks later, you see another tv spot for another comedy that's also "the funniest movie of the year". I just find that so annoying. Basically every comedy that comes out is "the funniest of the year", every horror movie is "the scariest of the year", every action movie is "the most action packed ever", and every family movie is "the best family movie of the year". Is anyone else a little annoyed by this?

    They will often say, "The number one Family Comedy in the country" if they opened the previous weekend and were the top comedy of the weekend. If they actually opened and became the top film of the weekend, they will lose the "Family Comedy" part and just say, the Number One Movie in the country...

      I am so glad I'm not the only one who feels this way. Every movie that comes out they say "The best movie of the year!" Considering how picky I am with movies.... I don't think so, bubba!

        I get annoyed as well. That's why I never believe TV spots because out of hundreds of reviewers, SOMEONE will call it the best of the year...and that's all they need. The only ones I believe are like for Batman Begins or Ratatouille where they show how many reviewers loved the movie instead of using just one quote.

          Look up the definition of the word "hyperbole." That's where we get the word "hype."

            Maybe if they did something like "The best (category) movie this week..."

              It's all about the marketing.

              Would anyone go to a movie that claimed, "It's just an average movie, but they got all of the lines right!".

              I don't think so...

              They'd rather get your money first, then disappoint you.
