Movie poster mayhem

Fool’s Tan

Judging from the movie poster for Fools Gold, never before has the success of a movie rested so much on the toned abs and limbs of its photogenic leads.  Already there have been aspersions of doubt cast upon the authenticity of Kate Hudson’s bikini body and the question of Photoshop lingers in the air like the scent of Matthew McConaughey’s armpits. 

I have nothing to add to the debate other than Kate looked pretty fit the last time I saw pics of her at the beach, but then again it could be anyone behind those dark glasses, proving how completely fungible she is as an acting commodity.

And really, aren’t there more serious matters at stake, like trying to figure out what happened to the movie poster for Mad Money? My guess is that at least one hed is pastede on (yay) and at least one actress has been given a South Park-style makeover.

Mad cut and paste

    Kate Hudsons proportions are extremely weird in the movie poster. Her waist (right where the script hits it) must have been tampered with and her lower body is much, much smaller than her upper body. Her arm is too long, if she’d stretch it, she could touch her knee. This is really bad photoshopping – and obviously it does happen to simply everyone.

    I submit that her rack is faked-up.

    good use of the word fungible.

    And I don’t think that’s her body–look at the boobies. In the poster, she has some

    Did someone do up an APB on Diane Keaton’s butt? It’s missing.

    Hmmm, cheap tacky poster you say?

    those are the most photo-shopped boobs of life…a more honest approach would have been to attach her head to a piece of cardboard.

    and really? why do actors feel the need to relive former glory with one another, if you can call “how to lose a guy in ten days” former glory.

    Is this the sequel to “Because I Said So”? It looks like Diane Keaton’s playing the same character. What’s with the sunglasses, anyway? She wears them everywhere!

    Is there a way to writ the writers? Maybe make a recommendation on something we’d want reviewed?
