Misguided Attempt At Cultural Parody Poster Of The Week - Good Luck Chuck

Yoko Ono and John Lennon - Rolling Stone front cover (1980). Photographed by Annie Leibovitz

26 October 1993 - Sam Taylor-Wood and Henry Bond.

Good Luck Chuck - 2007

Wonder what went through the minds of the people that threw this together?

Obviously the joke here wouldn't be lost on the vast majority of the target demographic. After all the movie was described by The Washington Post as "sparing no effort to reach out to the crudest, youngest audiences it can."

Perhaps it was intended as a hidden message to those who had found themselves dragged along to see this by a younger sibling or that cousin who has an awful sense of humour:

"Don't fret. We are still able to produce comedy that pokes fun at high culture. The film is balls but stick with us and we'll give you something to reward you a few years down the line."

Rumours of a Duck Soup remake with Dane Cook in the lead will have to suffice for now.
