"When they need to save the world, but it's just America...."
"When you've basically seen the entire plot of the movie and all main scenes in the trailer."
"The preview shows a girl who’s Just Too Focused On Career to find love going back to her small hometown for whatever reason."
"It has anything to do with Steven Seagal."
"When the main actors name is bigger than the title on the poster."
"If the whole synopsis is a terrible idea, like making a movie about emojis"
"If there are multiple trailers for a comedy movie, but they use the same joke in all of them."
"When it’s a Disney remake. Solid."
"If the character points out something that is blatantly obvious. IN A WORLD, WHERE ONE MAN, HAS TO SAVE THE WORLD. Man: ‘I have to save the world.’"
"Blatantly bad re-casting to the point where you wonder if it would have been better to just drop the character (Mummy 3)"
"If Adam Sandler is in it."
"Critics did not receive an advance screening in order to write a review. It means the studio is hoping to at least recover an opening weekend of ticket sales before word gets out."
"When the advertising is "[Famous movie] meets [Famous movie]"..."
"The female lead gets naked in the first 10-15 minutes.
You know they were already running on fumes for plot, so out come the ta-tas."
"Reviews state that it's "Scariest"/"Funniest" movie of the year. It rarely is"
"An exposition in which one character explains everything that's going on to another character that should already know what is going on."
"When I can tell how it's going to end by just watching the trailer."
"A comedian who hasn't been funny in ten years stars in it and plays multiple roles. (Looking at you Sandler, Murphy, and Myers)"
"It stars Amy Schumer."
"If it starts with a sex scene."
"Starts with too much exposition: "Mary, just because you have a medical degree from Harvard, I'm still your older brother!""
"When the opening scene involves a shoot out with so many cuts you litterally cannot see what is happening, or who is shooting at whom."
"If it's from the studio that brought you, "insert decent movie here". Dreamworks still milks Shrek."
"When they hype the movies soundtrack more than the film it’s self"
"Shaky cam and quick cut editing. Jumping over a fence? 20 quick cuts. Take it or leave it."
""Get ready to see ____ back in action in the big screen!" This line is used in many bad movie trailers of old properties which are made into movies"
"It's an edgy reboot of a children's property that stopped being relevant a decade ago"
"High RT critic score, low audience score"
"ANY movie made that stars Melissa Mccarthy where it happens to also be directed by her husband. She is incredibly funny and extremely talented as is he when they're acting. But when he's in the director's chair, It always spells out "doomed-to-fail.""
"It's been in production for too long.
There's always a reason, for a recent example; 'Chaos Walking'. It changed screenwriter, director and production company so many times over 10 years but was sold on it been "A Charlie Kauffman movie starring Daisy Ridley and Tom Holland". Kauffman left in 2013, Ridley and Holland filmed it over years due to so many reshoots and failed screenings. Then Lionsgate said the negative reviews were shocking to them.. Really??"
That's all you needed to say
Viewers gave it only a 69%.

I was never fond of superheroes and all their surroundings. It puzzles me how something like Superdog became a thing...
"Gag me with a spoon?" The '80s wants their saying back, Valley Girl.
One to add: if it doesn't tell a story or there are extrme logic fails in the story, like several action focues films
Ever heard of Uncle Chucky?
