Genuinely terrible movie taglines

12 July 2011 6:18 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A good movie tagline can, at the very least, help in the promotion of a film. But what about when it goes wrong? Er

The art of the movie tagline is a tricky one that generally involves locking clever people into a room until they come up with something catchy. Yet, sometimes the coffee machine isn't working. Everyone is in a bad mood. There's no Toby Ziegler figure to come in and solve everything.

And that's when you end up with this collection of oddities. Here, we're looking at taglines that just do little to sell the film. In all truth, we quite like some of the ones we're about to show you (Hombre is a corker). But do they do their job? Er, not really.

Without further ado...


This Charlton Heston-headlined 1974 disaster movie was, in fairness, released at a point where poster taglines were just a little bit minimal. »
