Making Faces - Family Portrait

“Yeah! The first photo, I’m the one making the ridiculous face. Those were for the church directory and the photographer kept saying: everyone smile now! And I kept making silly faces. My mom was so mad when she saw them! This one was the most normal of the bunch.”

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.”

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?
