New Fred Claus Movie Poster

in: Comedy


Fred Claus Poster

I didn’t like the earlier Fred Claus posters, and I think I like this one even less. And I really don’t like what they say about the movie.

What is the problem? It’s Vince Vaughn in a tricycle, looking like a 5-year-old. It’s Giamatti’s overly theatrical expression. It’s all the elfs. It’s, in other words, the kind of humor that the poster is using. A humor that is quite silly, in a bad, kind of stupid way.

Of course, this is a matter of taste. I’m sure that there are going to be people out there who go crazy for Vaughn in a tricycle. And perhaps it will play really well with the young ones. But is not a kind of humor that appeals to me, and I think it is not the kind of humor that people who liked Vince Vaughn’s comedies so far are into.

But we’ll see.

    Agreed. That very first trailer of the two of them just sitting on a sofa bickering was great. Everything I’ve seen from this film since then leads me to believe that this is going to suck some major ass.
