Most Annoying Movie Posters Ever!!

Movie posters/covers so annoying they actually make me angry as I stare at them while going through on demand or in old videos stores (remember those?).
“ Milk Money (1994) Ed Harris Melanie Griffith
For me, this is the poster that started it all! I could never figure out how the giant over exposed head was supposed to be Melanie Griffith's. She plays a prostitute so the straw is symbolic and Ed Harris's kids want Melanie to stop sipping from "straws" and accept the flowers from their father.
This poster had put me in therapy for several weeks in 1996. I'm not kidding. ”
“ Everybody's Fine (2009) Robert DeNero, Drew Barrymore
This *poster drives me nuts, either it's the stupid drag&drop Christmas tree behind Sam Rockwell, Robert DeNero's lackluster smile -or his amazing handling of a 1997 Cannon camera by getting everyone perfectly in frame (Or is that someone else's hand?).
* This is the poster used for on demand and on the DVD/BluRay cover- IMDB has a different poster on the IMDB page & figure someone will bug me about it. ”
“ Race to Witch Mountain (2009) Dwayne Johnson
Dwayne Johnson looks really really annoyed at the spaceship behind his head in this poster. I have no idea why The Rock didn't use his "action face" but instead used his "terribly annoyed" look. ”
“ The Banger Sisters (2002) Goldie Hawn, Susan Sarandon
Look out! These sisters know how to have a good time.... I've personally never seen this movie, but I'm betting it had at least one "dressing room mirror" montage and one "trip in high heels at a function while all dressed up" scene. Goldie Hawn is supposed to look like the wild sister of the two at first, ...but I bet Susan Sarandon later comes out as the more outrageous sister near the end (Hence the symbolic pearl necklace around her neck).
The poster owes a lot to photoshop, Goldie Hawn has no neck and her face looks like it's in a G Force speed simulator. The tattoo idea is horrible ..and who would want to be the tattoo artist who sat with these two sister sitting back to back talking about menopause. Ugghh ”
“ Funny Money (2006) Chevy Chase, Geena Davis
I'm guessing this poster was drawn by some temp from Mad Magazine with the unsuccessful attempt of making Chevy Chase look younger ...and funny. ”
“ The Bucket List (2007) Jack Nicholson, Morgan Freeman
Wholly Sh*t -Was taking ecstasy on the Bucket List?
The only reason I wanted to see this movie when it first came out -was entirely for Nicholson, as he looks like he's playing a character more intense and insane than Jack Torrance in The Shining. ”
