10 Incredibly Misleading Movie Trailers

The Rules of Attraction

What the Trailer Promises: A teen movie about college students drinking and screwing and doing drugs and generally getting themselves into lots of hijinks.

What the Movie Delivers: A demented, nihilistic, and extremely inventive story that centers around a sociopathic drug dealer played by James Van Der Beek — yes, that’s right, the guy who played Dawson. This movie should have been his breakout role, but no one went to see it because the trailer sucked so hard.
