  • For a movie to get bad reviews, isn't that rare.--Carabinieri (talk) 14:02, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
  • I'm open to suggestions for an ALT hook.. and offer a couple below... but when an anticipated film becomes a stinker in the eyes of reviewers, that critical disappointmet can become THE interesting factoid that can serve our readers. Schmidt, MICHAEL Q. 08:14, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
I agree that the irony of an anticipated film bombing is interesting, but there is nothing in the article that says the film was anticipated. ALT 1 assumes that people know of or like Lock Stock, and ALT 2 seems like a TV Guide listing. I think the opening line in reception is brilliant, and could be turned into a hook. ▫ JohnnyMrNinja 19:42, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
  • ALT 3: ... that critics described the 2002 comedy thriller Triggermen as "neither noticeably comic nor remotely thrilling"?
    • In agreement, I like ALT 3 plenty. Definitely catches the eye. Thanks for offering it. Schmidt, MICHAEL Q. 22:52, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
Symbol confirmed.svg Good to go with ALT 3. Long enough, new enough, well-referenced and no obvious problems with the text. Moswento (talk | contribs) 10:25, 24 April 2012 (UTC)
