Review: (#1) A breezy look at the star of a new movie, one you can barely make out who it is. That’s not effective advertising even if it ties directly into a scene depicted in the trailer.

(#2) A more traditional poster that, while not quite as bland as the first, is still rather bland in comparison to its contemporaries.

Trailer Rating: B- / B+

Review: (#1) This might be a bit too dense for some audiences. A war comedy? While I love Tina Fey and I’m sure she’ll absolutely kill this, the mixture of genres seems strange.

(#2) More of the film’s plot emerges and it makes the film seem a lot funnier than it was. Anyone who’s a fan of Tina Fey will have their curiosities piqued, but it might not have a lot of cross-over appeal.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
