    Somtimes taglines for movies are hilarious, or quite literally make no sense at all. You could come up with better ones through a random word generater. Anyone think of some good ones?

    On the Twelve Monkeys extras, they show the director and advertising people thinking up taglines.

    "Here's one....'The Future Is In The Hands Of A Man That Has None'"

    "Ah right......he has no future. Hhmm, wait, it sounds like he doesn't have any hands.....forget that one."

    The original teaser for Seinfeld's 'Comedian' had some great inane taglines.

    All About Eve, a great film from 1950 about a woman that moves herself into the circle of a great actress and slowly starts to plot and copy her idol into fame and fortune, was apparently promoted with the entirely nonsensical tagline:

    It's all about women---and their men!

    Perfect timing for this topic... on Friday I saw the bus stop poster for Cellular and I can't remember the exact tagline but it was ridiculous/pathetic enough to be funny. Something about If she loses her signal... she loses her life!

    It's If the signal dies so does she.

    The T2 poster said, "It's nothing personal." [​IMG] I think the joke was lost on some.
