POSTERS

Preview: Buzzkill (2012)

Synopsis:

A road trip sex comedy about an unlucky and self-conscious man whose ability to function is continually in doubt.

  • Poster: C-

Review:

I don't really understand how this is meant to entice people into the movie. Apart from the "Second City" mention, there's nothing even remotely tantalizing about this.

  • Trailer: D

Review:

The reason I even checked this trailer out was the tagline "The Second City presents". In its day, Second City's variety show SCTV was better than Saturday Night Live, but didn't last as long as it should have. Today, the comedy troupe seems at a loss to field a worthy effort on the big screen with the tiny cameo of Andrea Martin the only bright spot in an otherwise unfunny trailer.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
