It’s a sad fact in life that, sometimes, bad trailers happen to good films. Look at 21 Jump Street for instance; a clever satire of the buddy-cop drama made to look just like… well, just like an actual buddy-cop drama. We’ve decided to hold these trailer crimes accountable and have selected the top 10 worst offenders to be sent before the Best For Film judge…
In the trailer for The Devil Inside the film rather proudly states that the Vatican did not give its endorsement. Well, neither did they endorse 21 Jump Street, but you don’t see them banging on about it do you? Anyway, perhaps they just weren’t fans of the movie. Big cinephile, The Pope, didn’t you know? Well, you will after reading his scathing critques of these other films the Vatican doesn’t want you to see.
First, two of the comedies he wrote came out in quick succession to huge box-office takings, and now Tarantino’s invited him to star in a film. Michael Bacall is a lucky bastard, and we hate him for it.
What do you get when you mix a re-hashed 80s teen drama, a deeply unoriginal “fish outta water” scenario, yet more bloody buddy-cops and Channing “meat face” Tatum trying to be funny? A sparky, self-aware, genre-flipping and consistently entertaining comedy-action fest, where LOL veteran Jonah Hill takes a back seat to that bloke out of Dear John. Honestly, we’re as surprised as you are.
