I had to sit through this trailer the other night before watching The Watch and it was a struggle holding in the laughter. Gerard Butler in a surfing drama, are you serious?
Chasing Mavericks might be based on an inspirational true story, but that doesn’t make this laughable trailer excusable in any way. It’s filled with dramatic over-acting, a few shots of random waves and Gerard Butler trying his hardest not to say the word “dude”.
If you can get through the trailer without laughing then perhaps you’ll be able to tolerate the movie when it splashes in theaters on October 26th, 2012.
