Justin Timberlake is So Bad in This Trailer, It's Not Even Funny

6/7/2013 11:00 AM PDT, by

Sorry, guys, that headline was misleading: Justin Timberlake is bad in the trailer for his new movie with Ben Affleck, "Runner, Runner," but it's very funny. Sorry for any confusion. 

Is there some kind of intervention that can be done for Justin here? Maybe Ben Affleck and Lance Bass can just him down and be like "listen up, friend, you've had a good run with your career as a singer/actor, but the time has come to choose between the two." And he'll choose acting, of course, since that is his greatest love, but then Ben will be like "choose again." And then Jessica Biel will walk in and hold him as he cries, and afterwards Jay-Z will show up to carry him back to the studio. And for the rest of his days, Justin will watch his battered old copies of "Alpha Dog" and "Yogi Bear," reminiscing on what could have been. What could have been if he had any real talent.

But hey, how bad does this movie look?

It's not his acting... it's this movie. Why did they even make this movie, like for what? It's been done so many times and this looks so generic and awful. I don't even know if i'll rent this from redbox, even with a free rental.

Timberlake's acting his bad...you could see how bad his is w/his delivery at 0:26.

The movie's plot is ridiculous but something tells me it will be a hit at the box office anyway.

I'm embarrassed by how embarrassing he is in this trailer. Sit DOWN Justin Timberlake!

He's *almost* as bad as Ben Affleck's spray-tan that makes him look like an overgrown Oompa Loompa.

Wow, if the trailer is any indication, this movie looks like a real stinker. Timberlake's oddly manic acting doesn't help, and his character doesn't appear to be remotely likeable or engaging. Ben Affleck looks unusually orange and puffy--doubtless on account of the spray-on tan Turd Ferguson mentioned. Looks like a major misfire. One of those we've-seen-it-all-before movies that's not original enough to go out of your way for, and not quite bad enough to be amusing.
