Choose both! Someone sent this link in about Tucker Max’s movie adaptation of his best-selling book. Yes, Tucker who. I didn’t know anything about him or his book, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell until I read the article. Apparently he’s having trouble getting the ads run. (Props at least for the classic THE ADS THEY DON’T WANT YOU TO SEE approach.) While I usually wait to critique something until after I see it (or hear it), watch this trailer and tell me this isn’t Shallow Hal’s special cousin. Sexist ads? Well, it’s that for sure. In the case of Borat though, Cohen at least hid the misogyny behind a European dolt. Here, the ad and trailer just aren’t funny.
