Movie Taglines


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...

Hi VE,

What do you mean divorce means never having to say you're sorry, that's all it means. Sorry I met you, sorry I married you, sorry I stayed with you, sorry for this and sorry for that. And it means that you wish you could go to a galaxy far, far away from that person.

It would be okay if you did keep doing this list all day. Enjoyed them all.

God bless.

that love story tagline is utter bullshit for sure.

as for the eagles, this is the issue my family has with it all as well, even though they are big LOTR fans.

These are all good. I love the LOTR one. But if we were able to solve our problems so easily, there would never be any stories.

I love Mr Gab and Im always saying Im sorry...Sorry I wreaked the car(it wasnt my fault some bitch ran a red light but sorry) Sorry I have to go to the doctor so much but because that bitch ran the red light my life has changed forever and there is pretty much nothing I can do about it. Sorry I have to take so many medicines that cost an arm and leg and your insurance only coves a small part again that bitch ran the red light and hit me remember? Awww I'm sorry I guess I say that an awful lot now and really I do love Mr Gab a whole lot but I really think I got the worst end of the deal. Oh and guess what? The Bitch who ran the red light and hit me? She hurt her knee! I cant walk any more with out help I need to take a butt load of pain pills do physical theropy and sit with a heating pad on my back and not to go any where any more because of her! Bitter yep you bet!

But he does give us a couple of criteria or features to keep in mind as we look for what true human happiness is.
