Ain't all them Snooty movies at Cannes

From The Wrap:

And from the (reportedly) sublime to the (unquestionably) ridiculous, for most of the past 10 days we’ve avoided rounding up much news from the Cannes Film Festival’s evil twin, the marche du film, where schlock is bought and sold in the shadows of the high art being celebrated at the festival. But the Guardian’s Friday roundup of the 12 worst posters of projects up for grabs in the marche is irresistible.
There’s “Copposites” (“A crook. A cop. A body swap.”), and “Sharknado” (yeah, it’s a tornado full of sharks), and “Bring Me the Head of the Machine Gun Woman,” and “FDR American Badass” and “Abner the Invisible Dog” and eight more. We’ve put a couple of choice posters here, but it’s worth the trip to check out the whole batch, and to imagine the hundreds that just missed making the cut.

FDR American Badass was available for streaming months ago on Netflix. I watched about 15 minutes of it. Barry Bostwick plays FDR. It's pretty stupid and very vulgar--dirty, frat-boy level humor.
