Trailers can be treacherous; I have learned that they intentiously will mislead you. One perfect example of this is the 2011 official Bad Teacher trailer with over eight million views on YouTube starring Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake. I usually stay clear or “comedies” because I rarely find them to be comedic but I expected a somewhat good one this time because the promising appearance of the trailer. A trailer needs to not be better than the movie, note to you trailer makers out there.
I haven’t yet seen these movies but the trailers do make me want to. Am I going to get disappointed?
