(1 point per category)
|Clearest Title||Perhaps a fun movie about a magician||Perhaps a fun movie about quirky neighbors||Perhaps a fun movie about a guy named Ted||Definitely a Tyler Perry comedy with Madea||Madea is the clearest title. She’ll take this point into witness protection.|
Rated R for pervasive sexual content, brief graphic nudity, language, and some drug use.
Rated PG-13 for language, some drug use, and brief sexuality.
Rated R for crude and sexual content, pervasive language, and some drug use.
Rated PG-13 for some crude sexual remarks and brief drug references.

(out of 5 stars)
|Work all day. Work it all night.
3/5 Kind of Clever
|Find your family.
1/5 Kind of Lame
|The first motion picture from the creator of Family Guy
2/5 Not really a tagline
|Believe it or not, they know too much
4/5 Funny tagline with the picture in the poster
|The trailers next round will tell me what these movies are about. Madea will also get a point for best tagline.|
|Best Part of Trailer||I now know what this movie will be about. And I have never felt so dirty.||It was nice to watch a sweet family trailer starring people in clothing.||I laughed!||A little bit of a surprise for me - I laughed in this one too.||People like Us and Ted will split the point for the best trailer.|
|Coolest Lead Actor||Channing Tatum from Dear John, Step Up, and G.I. Joe.||Chris Pine from Star Trek and Unstoppable.||Mark Wahlberg from Boogie Nights, The Fighter, and The Italian Job.||Tyler Perry from all of his films.||Now that I’m particularly self-conscious about my abs, I’ll give 1/4th of a point to each famous actor.|
|Best Cast||Matthew McConaughey (A Time to Kill) and Joe Manganiello (True Blood)||Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger games) and Michelle Pfeiffer (Batman Returns)||Mila Kunis (That 70s Show) and Joel McHale (Community)||Eugene Levy (American Pie), Denise Richards (Starship Troopers), and Doris Roberts (Everybody Loves Raymond)||McConaughey, Kunis, and Roberts each have their own merit, but I cannot not give a point to the teaming of Banks and Pfeiffer.|
|Best Street Cred|
For the Production
|Director Steven Soderbergh has also directed Ocean’s 11, Traffic, and Erin Brockovich.||Writer and Director Alex Kurtzman has also written Star Trek, Mission Impossible III, and The Legend of Zorro.||Writer and Director Seth MacFarlane has also written Family Guy.||Director and Writer Tyler Perry has also written and directed a ton of his own films.||Steven Soderbergh does have the best street cred of these talented directors. Point.|
