While watching a video clip online, I was subjected to a terrifically stupid trailer for the movie “You’re Next”. That trailer is available on YouTube1, but if you choose to save the 15 seconds of your life, just know that the voice-over tells you:

  • Don’t bother locking the doors. Animals…don’t…use…doors!

Now, first of all, that’s not true. Hell, dogs and cats have their own doors, and when they don’t, they use the ones humans do. But let’s suspend disbelief for a moment, and accept this statement. Given what the ad has just said, why in the world does it end with this:

The You're Next end screen

You just said not to bother!
