Chomp


Who approved this movie poster?  It looks like Julia Roberts is about to take a massive bite out of Tom Hanks' neck.

Thoughts on Julia Roberts and/or Tom Hanks? I think most folks either love them or hate them.  I can't stand her (I think she has an EXTREMELY limited acting range, AND she acts with her teeth), but HE is even worse.  UGH.  UGH!  I refuse to watch anything with Tom Hanks in it.  And before you ask, NO, I did NOT like him in Big. I have never liked him in ANYTHING.

Side note: My favorite Julia Roberts inspired moment EVER is contained in this clip:

That's it! That's EXACTLY it! Liz Lemon mailed it.
I'm not a big fan of either Roberts or Hanks. I won't go out of my way to watch a movie with either of them in it. Their just meh, I guess.(What was Lyle Lovatt thinking?) - G

nicole said...

hahaha u crack me up!!! awful poster! she may or may not -make me want to stab my eyes out with blunt spoons, depends on the day, and movie.

liz said...

every poster she's in looks like that. I can't stand her either. I hate that "i think i'm america's sweetheart" laugh she does.

Tom Hanks is awful. Just, awful. Match made in heaven.

LOVE LIZ! Did you see my facebook post? My muffin top is all that whole grain low fat you know you want a piece of that but I just want to dance.

can't stand Tom Hanks. Or Julia.

Jill said...

I'm so sick of her braying laughter. Enough already!

Mikelle Jade {The Honeypie Archives} said...

Not a fan of either... but won't avoid watching their movies.

you're right (and hilarious) that movie poster should not have been approved.

Trixie said...

OMG!!! BIG WAS AWESOME!!!! I LOVE IT!

Other than that I find he's the same character in every movie. Also I get him mixed up with Dustin Hoffman for some reason. I can't stand Julia Roberts. I CANT STAND HER!! She has a GIANT MOUTH! Why are women with GIANT TEETH always immediately considered attractive!? WHY?

Kristine said...

She is insufferable and so over rated and I can't stand the honking laugh. I've never seen Big or Forrest Gump and I think I will be okay if I never do. I saw him in some AWFUL movie where he is stuck in an airport and it was so contrived and hideous and I felt downright HOSTILE throughout the whole thing.

Kitty Stampede said...

AGREEEED!!!! how did these bullasses become stars?! I'll never get it.

LMAO at Trixie's comment.

georgia~gigi said...

Happy Saturday Drollgirl!!!

SAD! I'm not a huge Julia Roberts fan but I do love Tom Hanks!

kimbirdy said...

haha, i like some of tom hanks' movies, but i totally agree about julia roberts. she is exactly the same in every single movie, which is the exact opposite of being a good actor. she's terrible.

The Seeker said...

You always amaze me with the funny things you find!!!!!!

Wish you're having a great weekend

xoxo

TK Kerouac said...

Yet she ranked one of the top paying actresses at one time, go figure
I always felt her laugh wasn't real, very forced

Sherry said...

LOL!! You're so right - awesome poster!!! Just came across your blog and I'm loving it!!

Claire Kiefer said...

I have no strong feelings either way toward Julia Roberts, but Tom Hanks takes me right back to my childhood (Big, but even more so, Splash!).

Heather Taylor said...

This movie trailer was hideous. Julia Roberts is trying way too hard to one-up Cameron Diaz in Bad Teacher, what with her rum shakes and getting out of the car all wobbly and whatnot.

Audrey Allure said...

Haha, I'm indifferent about both of them.

SabinePsynopsis said...

I'm so glad you feel the same way as I do! Julia is neither here nor there for me, but Tom Hanks... Hate him with a vengeance. The only guy who annoys me even more is Robin Williams.

the homewrecker thing with julia bugs me too...can't stand jolie for the same reason...hanks is just kind of nowhere for me.....the poster looks like somebodies parents or something....not romantic or compelling at all....who are they marketing this movie to?....goofballs?

I think you need to become a fan of this page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Crue-You-LadyThe-Amazing-Wives-Women-Girlfriends-of-the-band-Motley-Crue/341046503000

You're welcome!! (singing)

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I think they are both ridiculously annoying. I'm not sure how they became such huge movie stars. It's one of the biggest mysteries of life, in my opinion.

Phoenix said...

Tom Hanks never bugged me when I (or he) was younger but nowadays, with his more and more saccharine movie choices... I'm not the biggest fan.

Julia Roberts just terrifies me. Always has. I would have to think really hard to think of a movie that I liked her in, but I don't want my brain to burst.

Marisa said...

Julia Roberts I can take or leave but Tom Hanks....well I loooovee Apollo 13.

Jo said...

"Corn!" Gotta love Liz Lemon!

adrienzgirl said...

Yeah that poster is just weird. Really really weird. I like them ok, neither are my favorites and I certainly wouldn't run out to see a movie because those two were carrying it.

Miss Absinthe said...

Right there with you. Hollywood is TIRED!

Pretty Little World said...

I kind of like Julia Roberts, but agree that she's very, very limited in terms of range. I like Tom Hanks as a movie producer - have you seen The Pacific? Amazing. Amazing.

Also, because of the group of vespa (??) riding peeps in the back of them, this appears to be some sort of zombie film. Like, they're chasing Jules and Tom, but Jules and Tom don't seem to understand the severity of the situation. Except Tom maybe gets it a little, because his smile is a tad nervous.

Alisa said...

I love Liz Lemon! (and Tina Fey!)

beth said...

i'm in the minority here, but here goes.

i love julia and especially loved her in "pretty woman" and tom hanks, i love him, too. he was great in "cast away" and fantastic in forest gump.

so now all you julia and tom haters can beat me up, as i plan on seeing this movie the day it comes out :)

i enjoyed big very much. but you understand i was a late bloomer. i still enjoyed some of his movies. i suspect it's the voice. and the plots.
