What are some examples of movie poster quotes, taken from the press, which aim to promote one film but slightly undermining another film?

Good example, for Larry Clark's Kids:

"Makes Trainspotting seem like 70s Blue Peter" - The Guardian

More recently, for Gavin O'Connor's Pride and Glory had a quote on its DVD sleeve, which I can't quote verbatim, but which said something like

"Makes The Departed look like The Bill" - Johnny Vaughan

There is, of course, Monty Python and the Holy Grail's parody of such quotes:

"Makes Ben Hur look like an epic"

which was translated on the French poster, slightly missing the joke, as

"Le film à côté duquel Ben-Hur ressemble à un documentaire" [The film that makes Ben-Hur resemble a documentary].

Anyone have any other good examples?

If you ask a Mod we'll be happy to shift threads if they're in the wrong place (rather than double post)
