Did you hear?
Crazy Stupid Love opens today.
Of course you’ve heard.
We’ve been under a movie trailer attack for months! Surrounded. Bombarded.
Taken prisoner even.
Don’t get me wrong — I’ve loved the Crazy Stupid Love trailer from the first time I saw it — was totally sold on the movie.
Ryan Gosling? Check. Steve Carell? Check. Emma Stone, Julianne Moore, Marisa Tomei? Check, check, check. Ryan Gosling nearly naked??
Too many checks to include here.
And I personally love movie trailers. Love seeing them on television, love sitting through them at the theatre, love them for the art that they are.
But then I saw the Crazy Stupid Love trailer again. And again. And over and over and over again. On TV. In the theatre. Online. They were everywhere.
There was no escape.
Crazy Stupid Love’s marketing campaign has been crazy, stupid overwhelming. Their attempts to generate audience excitement have been bloody exhausting.
You know what? Just to show them how I feel, I may wait until mid-afternoon today before I go see it.
Yeah…that’ll send a message.
Note: Saw Crazy Stupid Love at the 1:15pm showing (early mid-afternoon). This is such a wonderful film — worth every crazy, stupid overwhelming trailer…and then some! — Carla
