So, here we have a film starring Vince Vaughn, with a side of Jon Favreau. As the trailer makes it clear, this is a comedy. Based on that, shouldn’t the poster be more fun? A bunch of people sulking inside a body of water doesn’t really spell barrel of laughs to me. At least not this execution of it anyway.
As a matter of fact, if you changed all the actors, putting in their place a bunch of 20-year-olds, this could be the poster for the newest angst ridden teen TV series. From the makers of Dawson’s Creek, it’s Vince’s Lake.
I have to admit I didn’t find the trailer all that funny either, but it was much more clearly trying to make me laugh.
