Below is the trailer for Shrink, starring Kevin Spacey. Here is the marketing pitch:

Jonas Pate's Shrink is a striking, fast-paced exposé of the "other" Hollywood, featuring folks living outside their comfort zone and the people who put them there. Henry Carter (Kevin Spacey) is a psychiatrist with an A-list clientele, including a once-famous actress (Saffron Burrows), an insecure young writer (Mark Webber), and a comically obsessive-compulsive superagent (Dallas Roberts).

Pros: 1) Kevin Spacey can still be good, particularly when he's playing normal guy who goes unhinged; 2) Landry is in it; 3) good use of a Jackson Browne song in the trailer.

Cons: 1) Kevin Spacey has a history poor movie choices; 2) Landry is not in it enough. Also, his character's name is Jesus; 3) The pothead shrink was done just last year (Wackness); 4) the marketing pitch is terrible; 5) the announcer in the trailer is awful.

Cons win. Sorry, Shrink. You lose. Thanks for playing.
