A UK satellite channel was showing Star Trek IV, apparently with this plot....

"Captain Kirk and his crew must return to Earth to face trial for their crimes against the Klingons"

Um, really?

Any other howlers you've seen?

I can't remember the exact quote, but somebody had their signature line from a local TV guide that said "...after commiting a gruesome murder in a surreal world, a young girl teams up with three strangers to plot another killing..." or something like that.


It was for the Wizard of Oz. :D


ROLLO!

That is awesome! I never thought about it before but I suppose that is a pretty accurate description of the movie.

It stuck with me. :D I wish I could remember who used it as their sig line... :(

Those monthly movie brochures you can pick up at theatres are usually pretty worthless. I've read some real whoppers in those. :rolleyes:

ROLLO!
