OK, I know it's not a film poster, but what the shit is this?



Is it not one of those lenticular covers, where the image changes, depending on how you angle it?

Don't think so. Here's a photo from ebay:

Ah, okay.  In that case, I agree; that cover is awful.

Yeah, I mean Empire are really letting their standards sli... oh.

A Fish Called Wanda, starring John Cleese, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Kline and Michael Palin – and introducing Wanda, the alien fish-woman:



I’d assumed this artwork was a DVD cover, but apparently not – this is the original US poster.

there is one good thing about it- the names are in the right fucking places, for a change.

They managed to find a cast where the pecking order was perfect. Rare.

Although according to Michael Palin’s diaries, all four were paid the same fee.

That one of Ricky Gervais leaping into the air in profile, with his head turned towards the viewer, with a huge grin on his face.  I can't recall the film title, but it just looks a bit daft.

A publicity photo of Ricky Gervais looking like a wally? Say it ain’t so!

That was for The Invention Of Lying.



Load of absolute fucking garbage. The film, I mean. Load of absolute fucking garbage. Smug, obnoxious horseshit from one rotten end of it right to the other.

It'd make a good double bill with Yesterday. I say "good," but it wouldn't be; you know what I mean.

If you didn't know beforehand, the poster alludes heavily to the title being 'Tell The Truth'.

Really does look like one of those fake film posters with such a ludicrously shit one-note concept that they're good for a cutaway joke in something like 30 Rock or Arrested Development, because it's immediately obvious how shit a film it would be if it was real.

I also sat through this and it was truly awful. Half-baked ideas, unfunny and weirdly nasty. If it was made in 2019 it would be a straight-to-Netflix exclusive that Ricky would claim is exactly the way he wanted it to be released.

I felt the same about this. I thought it was a prop from Arrested Development when I first saw it.

Its impossible to tell if they are holding the badges, or they have fucked up tits that resemble fingertips, and the police badge is clinched in the cleavage.
