Comedian Dane Cook says his new film with Kate Hudson, My Best Friend’s Girl, is the “best/funniest film I’ve done yet.” But he’s hardly crazy about the film’s poster – and he’s taking his gripe public.
“Although I’m not a marketing major, I have a bit of a trusted reputation after 18 years self promoting,” he writes on his MySpace blog. “I’d like to inform you I had no say in this marketing campaign, but if I did, things would be different since it is obvious that this poster is boring/odd.”
Cook, 36, rattles off a list of 10 different things “that truly blow” about the poster – and he doesn t hold back. The funny, often raunchy list includes problems with the characters stares, the set, his lips, head, skin and hair.
“It looks like I’m wearing Maybelline Water Shine Diamonds Liquid Lipstick,” he jokes in item No. 4. “My character’s name is now Winter Solstice and I’m a hooker with a heart of gold.”
Lionsgate, which will release My Best Friend’s Girl on Sept. 19, did not return calls for comment.
