This is Mandela Effect level shit. But better than Mandela effect, because no one actually thought Mandela was dead. Whereas I defy anyone to tell me that they genuinely thought Paul Hogan was still alive.

He was ill wasn't he? I remember seeing him in one of the films looking very drawn. I suppose I assumed he must have pegged it from that.

The guy who played "Ernest" in those movies is dead and maybe that added to the confusion.

I mean those "Ernest" comedy movies they would show on Channel 5 on Sunday afternoons as filler.

Is that real? I thought he was dead.
At least Hogan, Cleese and Chase all look like they could conceivably be in the same shot. Although why Cleese is looking at the camera and Chase is looking at the back of Hogan's head, I've got no idea.

I think it's a film where Paul Hogan plays himself, but he "becomes" his famous character Crocodile Dundee throughout the course of the movie, a bit like Wes Craven's New Nightmare.

On the subject of Paul Hogan and Crocodile Dundee; I naturally assume that you've all listened to the podcast with the screenwriter of Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles and if not, why not?!

Surely there's a limit to how many names it's practical to put on a poster?

And risk missing out on the Rachael Carpani and Shane Jacobson fanbases?

All those people have gathered on the beach to laugh at the people without legs as they bob about.

They could have just been standing on the beach, as the reactions of the other characters is classic film poster trickery where they just insert a shot from any scene, they just really wanted the dog and bikini on the poster and built the rest around it.  The plot sounds atrocious, I do rate Owen Wilson though.

I do too. Pity that it's actually Luke Wilson in the movie.

I have auto correct the Wilson brothers software on my phone.

Who or what the hell is that standing behind Wilson on the right? He looks like the propped-up corpse of Val Kilmer.

That's such an awful poster (seriously, no-one noticed they didn't have legs?) I think it's given me an idea for a thread.

Jon Lovitz

I was hoping it might be Michael Cimino.

I know I’m late to this party, but why should the identity of the executive producer entice me to watch a film? What fraction of the audience even knows what an executive producer is or does?
