Quotes?[edit]

Is it true that the marketing people can twist quotes to make the seem more favourable? For example if one reviewer said "Not exactly the greatest film ever" then the marketing people would be able to quote that person as saying "The greatest film ever".

That probably does happen, but I think in the UK at least, it would be picked up by the Advertising Standards Authority. Devoninspiration 10:38, 11 September 2007 (UTC)DevonInspiration

POV?[edit]

This article seems very biased and not a "neutral POV" on the subject -- as written it seems to have downright disdain for the topic. The article needs to be rewritten (possibly merged as part of a reorganization of film marketing articles as a whole?) -- I noticed a dreaded "some people" statement or two. -Jca2112 07:23, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

  • The article discusses a necessary task movie studios must perform. Sometimes it _is_ distasteful, and may interfere with someone's experience of, for example, a TV show. If done tastefully or ironically, such placement can enhance the enjoyment of show, if it is well written. Find some documentation of anyone enjoying product placement. --Lexein 15:09, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

>Right expression[edit]

Isn't a "movie junket" often called "press junket"?


Agreed, "Press Junket" is the only way I have heard the term junket applied when referred to by the television media.


Why are press junkets not discussed here?SUNY Boy (talk) 21:27, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

About the "Quotes" thing...[edit]

Yeah, I keep wondering about that, too. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Anon126 (talkcontribs) 07:10, 21 February 2008 (UTC)
