Anticipation (Before Trailer): 25 out of 100
Anticipation (After Trailer): 30 out of 100
Why do trailers sell movies by mentioning movies you might not possibly like? The trailer for Love the Coopers seems fairly generic. Then it happens:
“From the producers of The Family Stone” flashes on the screen. Really? You’re telling me I want to see this holiday movie by mentioning another crappy holiday movie. I’ll pass. Probably. (OK, I saw Fantastic Four so you know I’ll watch almost anything.)
Side note: Ed Helms doesn’t help either.
