An underwhelming film is released.

No money left in the budget for complete sentences.

Critic Kenneth Turan calls this "ripped-from-today's-headlines thriller" a "slick excuse for efficient mayhem ... not half as smart as it would like to be." With a movie poster that puts a period after words like "Now they have become the target," we would tend to agree!

Thanks to Hollywood vulture vza for this catch!

Mr. Otis Regrets

Family comes to town. Vulture finds this sign posted in their hotel's elevator:
Vulture is delighted.

It's not the economy, stupid.

Nothing says "My business is a failure" like spray paint signage.
Nothing says "My life is a failure" like getting it wrong.

Coffee's Shop

This one is tough to see. If you squint just so, you'll notice that the fancy glass directory of services at the base of a building in downtown Los Angeles proudly proclaims "Starbuck's Coffee" is a tenant.

I'd sure like to meet Mr. Starbuck. Methinks Starbucks Coffee Company would not approve this signage!

Holy Baat Cave!

We are grateful to vulture Karen for sending in this frightening pair of signs spotted at an all-girls Catholic school in San Diego:

I'm not sure what's worse: multiple signs confirming the blunder, mysterious handwriting apparently incapable of representing the letter "M," or the fact that these are posted at an institution of learning?
