From IMDb: “When Fred Flarsky reunites with his first crush, one of the most influential women in the world, Charlotte Field, he charms her. As she prepares to make a run for the Presidency, Charlotte hires Fred as her speechwriter and sparks fly.”

Poster Rating: C- / C- / D+ / D

Review: (#1) Cheap design with big, garish, bold lettering in unappealing colors paired with a fitting, but uninteresting image. (#2) The same blocky lettering is not enhanced by this scene from the film that only barely triggers interest in the viewer. (#3) This looks horrendously staged, cut poorly from a different scene and placed on a color-deprived background with that same tacky lettering.

(#4) PhotoShopped to death, this design is blocky, bulky and more fake looking than it should be.

Trailer Rating: B / B+ / C+

Review: (#1) A sometimes humorous, overall generic comedy trailer that benefits from the presence of Charlize Theron. (#2) A surprisingly hilarious update with more plot detail, but also more spot-on comedy that certainly makes the film seem a lot more fun than the first trailer.

(#3) The first trailers were quite humorous, but most of that humor was jettisoned here to focus on story and that doesn’t make the film look that exciting.
