Lame, pointless web site

Fast Food Nation is an excellent film directed by Richard Linklater. It's a fictionalized version of the (I'm told) excellent book. Here's Lorika's review.

However, some junior fuckhead at Fox Searchlight pictures is marketing the film through a lame, stupid web site "doyouwantlieswiththat.com". They have pretty cool "burger-and-crossbones" stickers with that URL, but the site makes you admit you're a liar and ultimately just redirects you to the actual film web site.

Worst. Website. Ever. (But go see the film! Beware if you get queasy at the site of cow blood.)

were you at the lagoon last thursday for the free premier? we were there. the place was packed so i probably wouldn't have seen you anyway.

and i agree. super sucky site. and they wouldn't give me any stickers. all i got was one of those grody brochures from PETA that show bunnies and kitties with razors in their eyes. *shudder*

Gosh, and last month I said it was interesting:

But that was really for the inside page (once you get through the annoying Q&A), which has some cool aggregation stuff going on:

heh. yeah, the actual film site is interesting with the aggregation. but the Q&A thing to direct you there sucks dead cow balls. (ouch!)

btw sorry for the long delay posting comments. they're better after they age for a day anyway, right?
