Are they for real?



I can't believe Marilyn Monroe is on the dvd cover. I saw this flick a long time ago, but as far as I remember she had a small part and said few lines. It's iven worse than the new cover for Smoke.

(By the way, I am at work now but wasting my time with this pointless stuff) :)

When you think about it deeply, all life is pointless.

i was relieved to find out you were at work; i thought you may have been avoiding your own family at home while posting, and that, good sir, is inexcusable.

Marilyn is on the cover because it was released as part of a Marilyn Monroe dvd collection. They included everything that they could get the rights to and this was one of them. Actually, I think that they released two collections and this one was part of the second one, which is probably why they picked one where she had a small role. That's the only reason why she's on the cover of the dvd.

OK, this explains it. Thank you.

Yes, Marilyn's boobs are for real.

I wasn't bothered by them putting MM on the cover. What annoys me is the blurb on the back of the box, which states, "The chemistry really explodes when his voluptuous secretary (Monroe) gets a taste of the potion." Actually, her character doesn't drink the formula, and is barely involved in the second half of the film at all. In other words, they are telling us a flat-out lie. I'd say that crosses the line between misleading and completely unethical.

It's advertising...

Yes. You won't be the last person to be duped into purchasing a dvd/video that fails to deliver on what it clearly implies or promises.

When I read the title of this thread, I thought it referred to Marilyn's breasts, which resemble a pair of rockets taking off.
