50 Worst Movie Taglines

The Devil's Rain (1975)

The Tagline: Heaven help us all when The Devil's Rain!

Why It's Terrible: We're sure there's a word missing at the end of that sentence.

What They Should Have Done: Heaven help us all when The Devil's Rain falls!

Tourist Trap (1979)

The Tagline: Every year young people disappear.

Why It's Terrible: Statistically accurate, but pretty depressing. And it doesn't offer any hint as to the film's creepy setting - a museum full of killer mannequins.

What They Should Have Done: They're no dummies.

Knowing (2009)

The Tagline: What happens when the numbers run out?

Why It's Terrible: The most specious of rhetorical questions just begs answering - economic meltdown? The end of bingo? What?

What They Should Have Done: When you run out of questions, it's time to hear the answers.

The Tooth Fairy (2006)

The Tagline: You can't handle the tooth!

Why It's Terrible: A bad pun is one thing; a bad pun based on a 14-year-old movie that the target audience won't have seen is another.

What They Should Have Done: Other posters carry the line, The Tooth Hurts, which at least makes sense.

Sex And The City 2 (2010)

The Tagline: Carrie on.

Why It's Terrible: Carrie on screaming, more like.

What They Should Have Done: Sexier. Citier.

Ondine (2009)

The Tagline: The truth is not what you know. It's what you believe.

Why It's Terrible: That's the philosophy of every nutjob in the world. Don't encourage them!

What They Should Have Done: He caught her in his net, and bagged a whole load of trouble.

Leap Year (2010)

The Tagline: Anna Planned To Propose To Her Boyfriend On February 29th. This Is Not her Boyfriend.

What They Should Have Done: On 29th February, the rules of engagement are reversed.

Dracula's Daughter (1936)

The Tagline: She gives you that weird feeling.

Why It's Terrible: Please clarify - which weird feeling? Good weird? Bad weird? Or just plain crazy?

What They Should Have Done: You've met the vampire. Now here's the vamp.

Basic Instinct 2 (2006)

The Tagline: Everything interesting begins in the mind.

Why It's Terrible: It sounds like the tagline to Good Will Hunting , not an erotic thriller. Everything interesting in a Basic Instinct movie begins in Sharon Stone's crotch.

What They Should Have Done: Give in to your instinct. You know you want to.

Ghost Ship (2002)

The Tagline: Sea evil.

Why It's Terrible: A pun that doesn't quite work; it feels like the sort of thing a caveman would say.
