I Love You Phillip Morris

Terrance the Trailer Trasher – @@@

I love the energy of this trailer. It comes out of nowhere and feels like one of the most original trailers of the year. The performances are fun. The story looks like it will twist in unexpected directions. I’m looking forward to it.

Michael the Moviegoer – @@

I think this trailer is trying much too hard to hide the fact that Carrey and McGregor are playing homosexuals. And I wonder if the gay community will be offended by Carrey’s over-the-top flamboyance. Aside from that, I have no idea what the story is about. They’re in prison, then they’re out of prison. Why? Might have some funny moments, but the trailer doesn’t fill me with confidence that this will be anything deeper than “Dumb & Dumberer.” And why does McGregor’s character have to be named after the tobacco company that was brought down in “The Insider”?

Terry’s Rebuttal:

OMG, Michael. Every single thing you said is lame. To be perfectly honest, until I saw the trailer, I literally did think the movie was going to have something to do with the tobacco company. I say this not to address your last statement, but to rebut your first. Knowing absolutely nothing about this movie, I could easily tell it was about a homosexual relationship from the trailer, so they didn’t do a good job hiding it. Carrey’s performance looks like Carrey at his over-the-top best and if the real-life person he’s portraying was not really that flamboyant in real life, we’d have heard the loudest cry ever from GLAAD already. And why do you ask stupid questions about a person’s name when the trailer points out a zillion times it’s a true story? I also don’t understand why you are complaining about not getting a perfectly clear story today when just yesterday you called the “Black Swan” trailer “perfect” because “It doesn’t give away hardly any plot” [sic]. Come on, Mr. Consistency. It’s not the trailer’s fault that you think insurance fraud carries a life sentence and you’re unfamiliar with the concept of parole. Or are you just auditioning for a lead role in “Dumberer & Dumbererer”?

“Phillip Morris” gets released December 3, 2010.

Tune in tomorrow for our stormy review of the trailer for a new adaptation of a play by some guy named William Shakespeare.
