I wasn’t planning on writing about this, because Dane Cook complaining about something isn’t high on my list of interesting things. But judging from the amount of people coming to our site looking for the poster he’s complaining about, I couldn’t resist any longer.
Dane Cook, comedian and sometimes actor, is in a new romantic comedy starring Jason Biggs, Kate Hudson, and Alec Baldwin. The poster (which can be found here in full size, or seen miniaturized below) is awful, to say the least. But Cook wrote a ten-point rant detailing all the reasons why the poster is horrendous. Among the complaints:
1. Graphics: Whoever photoshopped [sic] our poster must have done so at taser point with
3 minutes to fulfill their hostage takers deranged obligations.
9. The cast: Alec Baldwin is so f****** funny in this movie! Is he on the poster? I think so. He plays the wise talking plant Jason is clutching.
I totally agree with the Alec Baldwin point. More importantly, if you’re putting Dane Cook and Jason Biggs on a poster with the gorgeous Kate Hudson, wouldn’t you put her in the center?
Unfortunately, someone keeps letting Dane Cook make movies. Check out the poster below.
My Best Friend’s Girl stars Cook, Jason Biggs, Kate Hudson, and Alec Baldwin. The plot centers on Biggs asking Cook to take his ex-girlfriend (Hudson) on a horrible date so she remembers how great Biggs was. My bet is that Baldwin and costar Lizzy Caplan (Cloverfield) will be the scene-stealers. It’s set to hit theaters September 19th.
