Thank you, Mr. Bruckheimer

In front of the latest Harry Potter film, the good people at Warner Bros have thoughtfully included no less than five trailers for upcoming movies which, coincidentally, are predominantly Warner Bros / New Line movies.

Sandwiched between the impressive (The Two Towers) and the curious (Rowan Atkinson in a James Bond spoof) were trailers for three films which look simply god-awful. One was for a Hugh Grant / Sandra Bullock romantic comedy titled Two Weeks Notice where Sandra decides to quit her role as personal assistant to a wealthy obnoxious brit (guess who) in order to get him to notice her. Another was for "What A Girl Wants," in which a teenage american girl learns her absentee father is british lord, or something, and flies over the pond, and a hilarious clash of culture and attitude ensues, and ... whatever.

But here's the clincher: a fresh slice of hell called Kangaroo Jack. I dare you to watch the trailer. Bonus points for spotting the near-subliminal frame-and-a-half flash of Christopher Walken about 75% of the way through.

Oh God. That is awful. At least Cuba Gooding managed to steer clear of this one..

And I completely missed the Walken frames. But that trailer definitely needed more cowbell!

I kept waiting for it to end (oh god, the pain) but it kept going. I shut my eyes, but the sound just keeps coming. Ah, urgh, hurtful. it'll be over soon, right? These things are only a couple minutes right? The kangaroo didn't just speak did it?

I think I'm going to be sick.
