I am so confused that I cant come up with a smart-ass remark for that one. Darn you.

Yeah..any female friend who wished to see that movie probably had a stroke during Sin City...or several.

Actually she's quite blood thirsty. Her favourite flick is Ginger Snaps.
She just has trouble with the concept that just because a trailer makes you laugh, doesn't mean the film will too.

So you mean that the trailer can be perfect but the movie still suck? I should never believe what I see in films. But what if the trailer sucks, or makes you question established facts.

It can go either way. A skilful editor can assemble various scenes from a crap film to make it look better than it is, equally an editor that doesn't understand the material can grossly misrepresent the product.
A few examples off the top of my head would be the original Phantom Menace trailer that actually makes it look like it's going to be a proper Star Wars film and I think the original trailer for The Usual Suspects was shockingly bad and had little to do with what the film was about.
That tends to happen when the film-makers don't get a say in the marketing side of things.

I remember seeing a trailer someone made for Fight Club that made it sound like a light-hearted romantic comedy. They even got the John Leader voiceover down pat.

That's different. That's intentionally taking something out of context, like so. [Wink]

Most of the long-version, 5-minute-or-more trailers I've seen *ruin* movies...the funny or action-packed parts are *all* stuffed into the trailer.

Yeah, the less the give you is sometimes better. I'd much rather see a 30 sec trailer and see just enough to get me hooked than see a 5 min trailer that condenses the movie and tells me pretty much all i need to know.

An example of a good trailer...
Transformers, the hit of this summer.
The trailer had basically nothing in it, yet hooked millions of people, and was the most downloaded trailer on yahoo videos. I cant wait for transformers 2.

I just saw Voyager "Macrocosm". And they say Enterprise was bad.

On balance I'd say Voyager had more good episodes than bad compared to Enterprise.
