    I can't stop laughing every time I see the ad for this film. They recently changed the ad, I guess to cut down on the laughs, but it's still pretty damn funny. I never thought Chapstick would make me laugh so hard.

    I assume you mean "The Mothman Prophecies"?
    I actually think the trailer looks pretty good. I'm hedging on whether Richard Gere can pull suspense off like this film needs, but I'm willing to give it a try.

    Sorry, I completely forgot that it was Prophecies. And, I'm sorry but this looks like it's going to be really bad. Someone guessing that Richard Gere has Chapstick in his hand is not very scary & it's pretty lame (but very, very funny).

    I would agree that the TV commercial for "Mothman" isn't nearly as creepy and cool as the theatrical trailer.

    I'm looking forward to it.

    I remember reading the book back in high school for some sort of report and thinking it was actually creepy, and the movie ads look NOTHING like what was in the book. But there has been some positive buzz around it, or can you say "plant?" Ah, the age we live in!

    You know, I'm kind of looking forward to this one. The theatrical trailer was pretty good. Plus, it opens on my birthday.
