Laughable Tagline Dept.

The April issue of Premiere magazine has a half-page add for an independent film entitled The Hillz. First, you can tell it's all fresh and hip-hop and stuff because it uses a 'z' in place of an 's'. Also, the featured personage in the ad is co-star Paris Hilton, so, I mean, it's all right there, right?

However, it's the tagline that sells it. The Hillz, we're told, is "American Pie meets Pulp Fiction...with a dash of A Clockwork Orange."

That's pretty close, but personally I'd call it "Citizen Kane meets Home Alone 2: Lost in New York...with a dash of Raiders of the Lost Ark."

Tomato, Tomahto.

I always felt sorry for John Goodman. It was almost like you could see the life run out of him as the show progressed.
