A good trailer fills you with excitement and anticipation, it makes you want to see the movie it's advertising right now. An especially good trailer invites itself to be watched over and over again.
In short, a good trailer is everything this trailer is NOT.
How bad is the trailer for "Beverly Hills Chihuahua"? Bad enough that the venerable "NY Times" (the NEW YORK TIMES!) wrote about its awfulness. Bad enough that it's spawned a whole series of Youtube reaction videos.
Bad enough that star George Lopez (the STAR of the movie!) called it "the most annoying trailer you've ever witnessed in your life."
"If you've seen the trailer, it's either the greatest trailer you've ever seen if you're 10, or the most annoying trailer you've ever witnessed in your life if you're an adult," Lopez confessed, laughing. "Disney's doing a fantastic job of hooking the kids -- they can't wait. And if they hook the kids? The parents GOTTA take them!"
(Sample line from trailer's song: "We're the real hot dogs. Yo! Hold the bun.")
Really, we have to give Lopez credit for his daring honesty. Bless him. And since we're crediting his honesty, we'd be remiss if we didn’t add that he also truly thinks it's going to be a "good film."
