What did you think of the 'Year One' Super Bowl spot?

This isn't it, but it's pretty interesting to see a Shreve-made (or Sibley-made?) movie advertised on Super Bowl Sunday.

I hate to say this, but if I weren't already sold on seeing "Year One" that TV ad sure wouldn't have put my butt in the theater.

I would have assumed you would put the best stuff (or at least the most engaging stuff) in a Superbowl ad. But if those clips were the best of the flick, I shudder. Here's to hoping the better clips are still to come.

I was underwhelmed by it, too. It read more like an ad they'd run two weeks after its release.

This YouTube clip is a bit stronger. It will be a tonally strange film though. Not sure if audiences will go with the anachronistic dialogue, but "Year One" is probably aiming for the Monty Python faithful.
