Trailer Trash: The July 8th Quickie

Last weekend turned out to be quite a boon for me. I got to see both Larry Crowne and Transformers 3. Surprisingly, neither was intolerable. I'm curious if this trend will continue throughout July, but given the two releases listed at IMDb for this week, I kind of doubt it.

Zookeeper  I'm completely torn on this one. Usually I avoid anything with Kevin James starring like it were carrying the plague. Even by Kevin James standards, The Zookeeper looks excruciatingly painful. Without even seeing the trailer, the poster to the left is screaming at me to run the other way.  Having seen what the gorilla does in the trailer, I should have already headed to the closet to find my gun and end my suffering.

Then there's the other poster;

Ah, Rosario Dawson. The power this woman has over me is undeniable. Just to give you a clue, I actually paid to see The Adventures of Pluto Nash in theaters because she was in it. Of course, this means I will go against every anti-James fiber in my being to support her. At least my money will go to help this defeat those little blue CGI abominations in Fletch's March to the Box Office Madness.

Verdict:  It's Friday, I Don't Want to be Alone.

Horrible Bosses Hangover Part II and Bridesmaids have been this year's massive comedic disappointments, but I'm willing to wager this Strangers on a Train a.k.a. Throw Momma From the Train rehash will restore my faith in the gut-busting comedy. Bateman could use a solid hit and it's about time audiences embraced the funny Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis are dishin' out.

Verdict: Moist With Antici...Pation!

If anyone would like to convince me not to go suffer through The Zoopkeeper, by all means, stop me from the madness!

  1. I had no idea Dawson was even in Zookeeper until today when I saw her mentioned in these two posts of yours. I only thought Leslie Bibb was the love interest, but clearly, she's gonna go by the wayside in favor of Dawson.

    anyway, good move by Dawson and her people to keep her away from the marketing on this piece of crap. Hopefully, it won't hurt her career too much...

  2. She survived being in Pluto Nash, so I think her career is as resilient as it gets. I just wish she didn't have to slum in things like this and could be a bigger name.

  3. It really is strange she's not a bigger star. Hot as hell, good actress, funny. Someone needs to make her a lead in something already.

  4. You'll get no arguments from me on that. If no one else will do it, we'll have to get on it.
