OK, you fucking assholes. It’s time to show us what you’re made of. Below is the trailer for From Prada To Nada. It’s roughly a billion times worse than the title. It stars Alexa Vega (Spy Kids), Camilla Belle (10,000 BC), Wilmer fucking Valdermarra, and a bunch of other morons. I’ll be up front about this one — no Human Centipeding this time around:

I watch a lot of trailers. A lot. I could probably argue that I see almost every trailer that’s released every year, and that’s a fucking assload of trailers. This may well be the worst one I’ve seen this year, and yes, I’m including Zookeeper.

Here’s the full, obnoxiously long synopsis. It is possible that by reading it, your soul will revolt and punch your eyes out from the inside.

From Prada to Nada, a modern twist on Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility is a new romantic comedy starring Camilla Belle, Alexa Vega, Wilmer Valderrama, Kuno Becker and Academy Award nominee Adriana Barraza. It’s a whimsical fish-out-of-water story of two spoiled sisters: Nora (Camilla Belle), a law student, and Mary (Alexa Vega), an undergrad party girl, living with their father in a luxurious mansion in Beverly Hills. Mary has become so “90210” she refuses to admit she is of Mexican descent. When dad suddenly passes away, their posh lives are turned upside down. They discover they have been left penniless and are forced to move into their estranged aunt Aurelia’s (Adriana Barraza) modest but lively home in the Latino-centric Boyle Heights neighborhood of East LA. They are terrified to leave their world of privilege; neither Nora nor Mary speak Spanish or have ever had to take on actual responsibility. The girls gradually adapt to their new environment; their BMW and Prius are traded for the public bus and a used car. As they embrace the culture that for so long they refused to accept, they both discover romance, the true meaning of family, and they learn that the life of PRADA actually means NADA without love, family and community.

So now. You sat through Zookeeper, you sat through Human Centipede, you sat through Yogi Bear. Put all of that behind you. This is a true test of your strength. Can you make it through From Prada To Nada? Show me something. Show me that you’re worthy of Pajiba. Show me just how scathing and bitchy you can be.

You didn’t watch it, did you.
