(Awful) Trailer Tuesday: The Heat

Welcome to “Trailer Tuesday” where I talk about trailers for upcoming movies, since I’ve always found them to be endlessly fascinating.

Sometimes a trailer comes out that is so bad it’s mind boggling that the film was ever made.  I get the appeal.  People love Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, and I’m sure some executive thought this would make a lot of money.  After all, Identity Thief made $174 million dollars.  Take a look:

If it’s true that comedy trailers always include the film’s best moments, then The Heat will be absolutely horrible.  I did not laugh at all, but that’s just me.  Every time I’ve seen this in the theater, the crowd seemed to really get into it.  It’s almost a shame, too, because I’m a fan of Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, from early in their careers (Speed and Gilmore Girls), but this is just a waste.

What do you think?  How many times did the trailer make you laugh?  Did it even make you smile?  What’s the worst trailer you’ve seen lately?  Let me know in the comments!
