Remember this tear jerker? Ryan O'Neal and Ali MacGraw in "Love Story". I ran across this the other day and happened to notice the "tagline". A tagline is a shorthand to explain the theme or appeal of a film. These days, there's a fair amount of creativity and art to creating a tag line for a movie. But back to the "Love Story" tagline. If you cannot read it in the picture it says:
Love Story: "Love means never having to say you're sorry"
VE's retort: "No...Divorce means never having to say you're sorry"
And of course you know I could probably do this all day with other movies...
Rocky: "His whole life was a million-to-one-shot"
VE's retort: "His whole real life was a million and one steriod shots"
Star Wars: "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away"
VE's retort: "And geting closer, closer one sequel at a time"
Lord of the Rings: "One Ring to Rule them all"
VE's retort: "One Eagle that wouldn't fly the damn hobbits to Mt. Doom to end 9 hours of movie time watching them get there on foot"
Oh yeah...I could do this all day...
