So I've seen the commercial for this movie about a billion times already. Must've gotten the Bucket List rotation spot.

And not only is brutully unfunny and a waste of Jonah Hill and (maybe? kinda looks like..) Paul Rudd.

But they keep showing this footage of this fucking Shark and this goofy laugh that these knuckleheads are making over it and I DO NOT GET IT.

And they show it TWICE!!

Anyone else seen this? And can you explain what in the dang is going on with this shit? Because if I hear that laugh again I am going to fucking lose it.

I guess the repeat of the laughing is the joke. I don't get it.

Also, Jonah Hill's wheezy laugh is irritating as hell.

No, they show it 4 times!

When they showed the shark the first two times it was stupid as hell. Then the 3rd and 4th times I started laughing for no reason.

I laughed the next few times they showed the commercial.

Now it's getting old...

I'm pretty sure the shark's mouth/teeth are supposed to look like a big, bushy mustache, evoking the image of some Wilford Brimley type guffawing at the camera.

It's about as low as humor gets, and I'm ashamed to admit it, but I laughed. Then again, I actually kinda liked Grandma's Boy.

I thought this thread was going to be about that freaky ancient shark found off the coast of Japan a little while back. I'm disappointed now. Now that thing is strange wilderness.

I can't believe Steve Zahn went right from his brilliance in Rescue Dawn to this :\

And yeah, the shark segment is one of the most ridiculously odd things I've ever seen in a mainstream trailer.

It's an awful looking trailer that's trying to skate by because it has a guy from Knocked Up in it.

I can't believe this movie is finally coming out... I remember hearing that it was filmed a couple years ago right after Grandma's Boy but it's just one of those shitty movies that got shelved for a while before release.

I was dying when they showed that. I replayed the trailer about twice because of the shark scene. They've sold me a ticket, Mac guy notwithstanding.

Jonnah Hill's character looks absolutely irritating. I liked him in Super Bad, but this... this is not good.

I would've said it was an effective marketing campaign except for the fact that I had no idea what they were advertising. So it's for a movie?

Yeah, I can pretty much agree with this. Repeating it four times was the key, it gets funny because of meaningless overdoing.

It's because the shark has big, buck teeth. Picture a hillbilly with buck teeth and that laugh and you'll get the joke.

I'll see this just for Kevin Heffernan from Broken Lizard. I love that guy.

Hey people think Tim and Eric are funny so there must be a target audience for the repeat stupid laugh/word/moan/etc. over and over and over humor.

I just want to be clear that you're not comparing T&E fans to Grandma's Boy fans. Popopopopopopopo.

Just the commercial fans. I actually did like Grandmas Boy. The kung fu monkey was awesome.

Grandma's Boy was fucking greatness! This movie doesn't interest me too much though...but I have to admit the shark scene in the commercial had me laughing.

I've seen 3 variations of the commercial.

The first time had ONLY the shark, no mention of any movie.. Just a laughing shark, who went by 4 times laughing like a dork. I was like WTF is that?!

Then I saw it with the actual movie before it and the shark laughed once.

Saw it again with the shark laughing twice.



That fat dude (Jonah?) is not that funny. .He can be alright as a spot actor, but oversaturation is in full effect.

He's been in a bout 4 movies in about a year now.

I have the trailer on my PS3 and about the only funny thing in it for me is that shark scene, the more they play it, the more I laugh. I don't think of it as a hillbilly joke. It seems to me that the noise they are making sounds like their making fun of big toothed Chinese men.

My half-Chinese wife agrees with this theory and laughs at it as well.

At least that trailer has a "joke." I saw another trailer for it that had 0 comedic moments. It was the first time I heard of the movie and thought it must be incredibly horrible to not have a single "gem" to put in the trailer.

So I saw this movie today. Before I watched it I checked out the rottentomatoes.com score and it has a fucking ZERO score. I have never seen a movie get a zero. So I was expecting the absolute worst going in. The movie was actually decent. For anyone who has seen it, the whole goose scene alone makes it worth at least 1 view :lol
