The Great Sofa Shortage Of 1974 - Family Portrait

“I’m the one in the horrible pink velvet dress. I grew up with a mother who was always dressed in the best while we wore fashions typical of these. Not only was it our best, but look how small this dress is on me (way too short and the cuffs are halfway up my arm). Thankfully I was thin so it wasn’t like it was too small (to her). My 2 older sisters were hidden in the back because their dresses were so short also. Of course, she is in the middle and looks like a million bucks.”

10+ Hilarious Movie Tagline Fails

10+ Hilarious Movie Tagline Fails - Awkward Galleries

Think of the best movie taglines of all time. Jaws has “You’ll never go in the water again.” Alien got “In space, no one can hear you scream.” Ferris Bueller went with “One man’s struggle to take it easy.” What do they all have in common? They’re succinct, they evoke their films’ tones, and they’re just vague enough to be intriguing. We still remember them decades later.

Now think about how thousands of movies get made every year. It should be no surprise that not all taglines are created equal. Today, thanks to our pals at Flashbak, we’re taking a look at some of the worst movie taglines of all time. Some are way too on-the-nose. Some are just done in bad taste. And none of them will make you want to watch the movies.

They also raise a philosophical question: does a bad tagline doom a movie, or is a bad movie doomed to have a bad tagline?

Photographer Photoshops His Dog To Make Her As Big As She Thinks She Is - Awkward Galleries

Ever meet a tiny dog that thinks she’s much bigger than she really is? Maybe she tangles with larger dogs on the reg, or she just thinks she’s the leader of the pack and all the humans are her followers. Surrealist photographer Mitch Boyer has a dog like that, named Vivian, and he used his photography skills to make Vivian’s self-image come to life. Check out this gallery of a gigantic Vivian in New York City. And to be clear: if you meet a dachshund that’s as big as a longhorn steer, it’s probably best to let her do what she wants.

Meet The Mullets - Family Portrait

“This is a picture of my Dad, Mom, and brother the year before I was born. It says ‘1994’ right on the photo, but it definitely wasn’t necessary cause it’s so obvious it was the 90’s. I mean, my Mom and brother’s hair say it all. He had that mullet for 4 years. And I just love the look on my brother’s face, he had evil plans.”
