When Bad Posters Strike: Did You hear About the Morgans

Just shoot me now, it'll get it over with quicker.


Like, I know this movie is a ripoff of For Richer or Poor and they couldn't use the American Gothic-inspired design of that movie, but couldn't they have come up with something a bit more original that this? You movie stars Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker for crying out loud. Can't you put them on your poster? I actually think the idea of the buffalo and the taxi is a funny idea, but could have been executed far better.

It's just all that white space though. That white space is killing me.

Don't you think that maybe the occasional posted - like this - with a lot of white space, will actually stand out in a cinema foyer? Since most movie posters are still full of colour, etc.
