Quicktime Trailer

This is one of those situations where the trailer is so bad that you have to assume that the movie itself is weird, and the studio doesn’t know how to sell it.

The endless series of cameos in the trailer clearly has little to do with the movie. And anyway, all you need to do to get John Stewart and Conan O’Brian to play themselves in your movie is to pay them. Are we really supposed to be tempted to buy tickets just because they got paid? I mean, watching them do what do is actually free.

Clearly, someone was instructed to put together a reel showing all the celebrity cameos, and also showing Tom Hanks and his son together on screen. It’s difficult to even identify the genre here. Drama? Comedy? Bittersweet Kaufmanesque stuff?
