The ads for "For a Good Time Call..." are the epitome of terrible movie commercials. Very little about the movie, aside from a few "funny" clips, and interviews with the most irritating people at the screening declaring "It's like a guy movie!" and laughing like they saw a completely different movie.

And you just know those "funny" clips are the only parts of the movie that might get a laugh out of you, maybe.

They couldn't even afford the usual backdrop of a theater lobby covered with nothing but ads for the movie they're shilling for, just a white background.

A few years ago they introduced a new line of body washes and I signed up to be a tester and I was actually selected. They sent me a case with 4 bottles of each variety and yeah, all four scents were pretty bad. The nice thing is about 2 weeks into it the product hit retail and since my bottles were retail product I was able to exchange all of it at Wal-mart of the Phoenix scent (the only one that doesn't smell like total rear end).

I like Shock and Snake Peel

I've found that Axe scents may smell good to a man but a woman might find them very unappealing. I've tested Phoenix on many women and it's pretty much my go to bodyy wash at this point.

The unfragranced shower gels-like snake peel-are actually very good. I've been using the sport one and it's innocuous enough that you can't smell a thing when I've gotten of the shower.

The deodorants aren't bad either, if you can find the Fresh line, they're prettymuch just Degree sticks and don't smell too strongly. Shame Kilo's so hard to find in anything Axe (if they even make it anymore), that's the only scent I've had a girl like, to the point where she stole a can of mine. She was weird.

Edit: Not Gillete, you'd think I'd know the brand of something I use every day.

There's an IHOP commercial where a lady says "It's a great way to start your day" but mushmouths it a bit, so it sounds like she's saying "It's a great way to suck a dick." At least I think it does. I might just be a weird pervert.

Well, at 2am once every 6 months it's rumored that someone with a mop from 1957 actually cleans the floor in Waffle House, but that's an urban legend at best.

My state got it's one and only IHOP just a few years ago. The people/LLC that owned that location actually had to get special permission from, like, IHOP Headquarters, or something, to serve real maple syrup. The said (correctly) that not many Vermonters would go to a place for pancakes/waffles/french toast if they couldn't get real maple syrup.

Edit: Of course, why anyone goes there even if they have it is still a mystery...there's so many small restaurants and diners scattered around here that are good for one thing and one thing only: giant-rear end breakfasts full of meats, pancakes, and eggs that you then cover entirely in maple syrup.

I thought Perkins was pretty good in college. You could a really big muffin! Sadly, when I was in school, Perkins was one of the few breakfast places in town, I don't even remember a good greasy spoon diner.

I went to Denny's for breakfast for college orientation and had a Moons over My Hammy and I think that was the last time I went there. I was a Perkins regular though.

This is true. So true. The only reason me and a bunch of friends ended up at Denny's Sunday night, where we were seated by a woman with broken glasses and served by a waiter who look he wasn't going to wait until he got home to kill himself, was because our favorite 24-hour sushi place looks like it closed down and every other place we tried was closed.

IHOP is great because you can switch out your fries for some delicious flapjacks and if eating a burger with a side of pancakes ain't the most American thing ever, well by golly I don't know what is.

As for bad commercials, whatever car company is doing the one that has the impromptu midnight skinny dipping, with the group of people getting locked and using their phone to unlock it is stupid. There are a number of ways to showcase that feature with out seeming so douchey.

In a word, unreliability. Does the cook at that family owned diner used expired ingredients? Is the kitchen even cleaned with soap? Who knows? At least with a chain there are a certain standards that need to be met.

This was key to McDonalds' success- it wasn't great food but it was better than the greasy spoon experience. Fortunately at least some diners have stepped up their game in response.

I'm in southern Virginia and if I want a diner with food that won't loving kill me, I'm looking an hour or two in the car.

There's a decent burger spot, though. Only twenty miles.

There's some great after-hours places where I live that aren't greasy spoons and a step up from Denny's and IHOP, like Cafe Brazil. Problem is that Cafe Brazil is like twice to three times as much as Denny's or IHOP.

Steering the conversation away from diner chat, I really hate the Sargento "natural" cheese commercials. Stop lying, Sargento. Your cheese is not made in some dusty, old world shop. It's made in a cold, sterile, stainless steel equipment and concrete floor having plant.

Yeah, Denny's wouldn't tell a customer until he'd paid for the meal.
