Ugh, the posters for Night At The Museum 2 have the most obnoxious tagline - "Something Funny's Going On".

GEE, THANKS FOR LETTING ME KNOW THAT YOU WERE TRYING TO BE FUNNY!

I mean granted, with such an all-star cast list as Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and Ricky Gervais, I might need a bit of help understanding that they're going for the comedy angle.. But seriously, having to tell people in the tagline for your movie that it's supposed to be funny rather defeats the point. Nobody needs or wants to be told "The people who made this movie think it's hilarious!" - that's a very Ricky Gervais thing to say in the first place, and that does not bode well.

Well, given that cast, and the trailer that I saw for the first film, I would say that a more suitable tagline would be "Something Very, Very Unfunny's Going On".

So I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and say they were going for irony.

I was ready to be all "Yes, well done for seeing what I did there", but the second paragraph/line saved it :o)
