Future Bullshit: Old Dogs (2009)

Bullshit movies tends to stay away from comedies. When a drama or an action movie or a horror film or any other 'serious' genre fails by being bad, more than likely an unintentional comedy is provided. The existential question I always ask myself: when a comedy fails at being a comedy, what do you have? On the basis of this trailer for the upcoming Disney comedy Old Dogs, a black hole that swallows intelligence, laughter, ideas, goodness, decency, sunshine, and sensibility right into the eye of the storm and belches it all back to you as a hard lump of coal.

Seriously: you watch this trailer and you will want to hit yourself in the head with your own shoe.



There, how does your head feel? Not too good. I cannot remember a recent comedy trailer where I felt the straining for laughs more acutely in the pit of my bowels. Remember to put your shoe back on...

Although there is one comedy that is potentially funny and awful.

Haha. I love that someone took the time to upload it all onto YouTube. Yes, we must definitely hit this up if only to embrace Hollywood's image of New Zealand as mulleted biker played by STEVE GUTTENBERG!
