Calling all gluttons for punishment! Prepare for 12 rounds of movie taglines that are so brilliant, or so awful, that you can’t help but laugh even though in your heart you know you shouldn’t. Inspired by A Good Day To Die Hard’s tagline, these incredible feats of verbal ingenuity are yours to vote on, so have a look, weigh them up and let the world know if these taglines are brilliantly terrible, terribly brilliant or just plain ol’ dumb...

The Best / Worst Movie Poster Tagline Jokes | Dead Snow (2009)
Dead Snow (2009)

"Ein! Zwei! Die!"


It’s not often that a rudimentary grasp of German is required for a good-bad pun to work, but then again it’s not often that a group of Norwegian high schoolers get bloodily butchered by a brigade of Nazi zombies, so perhaps it’s best to let this one fly.

Better than the film? It depends on your tolerance of Führer-fueled gore. If the idea of two young lovers getting it reich in the neck as they bump uglies in a bathroom stall has you raising your hands in the air, then… it’s probably level peggings, really.

2 RE: The Best / Worst Movie Poster Tagline Jokes
The first thing I thought about when I saw the Crank 2 tagline was John Cleese in The Holy Grail saying 'I got better' after claiming he got turned in to a newt. More

3 From Paris
I LOVED the one for From Paris With Love cause even it's saying no thank you to it's premise. More

4 Other great taglines
I have a few crackers that were missed out from the list: "In space, no one can eat ice cream!" - Killer Klowns From Outer Space "Their crime was against nature... nature found them guilty" - Lost Weekend "This might hurt a little" - Sicko "Get a grip on yourself" - Spanking the Monkey "You can tell yourself IT'S ONLY A MOVIE... but it won't help!" - Night Train Murders (an Italian Last House on the Left rip-off) "It will take your breath away... all of it" - Dead and Buried "By pick, by axe, by sword, bye-bye" - The Mutilator "Herbert West has a good head above his shoulders... and another one in a dish on his desk" - Re-Animator "If you have guts... he wants them!" - Nightbeast "Where shopping can cost you an arm and a leg" - Chopping Mall More

7 Best Tagline Ever...
Is from 'The Dentist 2', Brian Yuzna's 1998 schlocker. I've never been tempted to watch the film as it would ruin the tagline. "You Know The Drill." Genius! More

8 You missed "He sits. He stays. He shoots. He scores!!"
...the tagline from "Airbud" about a basketball-playing dog that made me laugh out loud. Not enough to watch the frikkin movie of course. l'm not 3..... More

9 RE: The Best / Worst Movie Poster Tagline Jokes
Two of the so-called terrible ones aren't taken in the right context. From paris With Love - Two agents, one city, no merci. No merci could also be read as "No thank you" which is what I wish I'd said before watching this piece of shit. AVP - Whoever wins, we lose. This works on two levels If the movie had turned out to be good then it would have been a BAD ASS tag-line. As it stands it was an awful film so it's pretty apt. More

10 Or how about
The brilliantly succinct tagline to the South Park movie? "Uh-oh" More
