    Good Trailers for Bad Movies

    I'm making a list of bad movies that had good trailers.
    Who has some suggestions?

    Why don't we just finish the job by flushing our brains down the toilet?

    All-time-favourite in the category:
    "Bad Boys II"

    Also:
    "Pearl Harbor"
    "The Descent"
    "The Legend of Zorro"
    "Fun with Dick and Jane"
    "Rumor Has It"
    "The Dark"
    "Matrix Reloaded & Revolutions" (though they weren't particularly bad ... just not up to the first movie)
    "Dreamcatcher" (what an aweful movie-experience)
    "Tomb Raider" (the trailer was at least intriguing)
    "Men in Black II" (one of the worst movies in years)
    "Mindhunters" (likewise)

    I'll update the list as movie-titles spring to mind .

    Best regards,
    VSG

    Since when is "The Descent" a bad movie? You might have mixed that one up with "The Cave" which is similar but bad.

    Actually I didn't, though I don't know "The Cave" (yet).
    I quite enjoyed "The Descent" and considered it really scary - until the splatter started. Then, to me, it was just unimaginative and outright silly. Until the ending, that is, that had this forced "Cube" and "X-Files"-flair to it.
    So, calling it 'bad' might have been a poor choice of words. To me it was disappointing and a wasted opportunity. But those are just my two cents - your's might read entirely different .

    Hey, I liked that movie
    If you can stay calm, while all around you is chaos...then you probably haven't completely understood the seriousness of the situation.

    I liked Signs too, it seems to me that it's all a matter of personal taste, for example you can have bad hollywood movies but you can also have bad bad movies, movies which are so bad they aren't even known to the general public.

    Well personaly i would call everybody that liked signes morons... that movie sucked so bad that its not even a matter of taste.. its a matter of stupidity... i would rather se a 50 year old alien movie with cardbord sets, homemade costumes, and aliens made of gardentools and papermache... im not even gonna name the 100000 flaws and stupiditys in signs cos most of em are so ovious that a blind man could se em...

    Only movie in recent years i can remember sucking so bad was War Of The Worlds.. what a **** fest...

    Heck even Independence Day was better then those 2 stinkers... even if it was kliche and badly acted...

    Godzilla - Very nice trailers, quite bad film (no wonder the trailers didn't give away the plot)
    Batman & Robin
    Batman Returns (I know I'm gonna get flamed for that one...)
    Ocean's 12 (OK, wasn't that great, but at least you could stay awake through it)
    Scary Movie 4
    Die Another Day
    M:I-2
