Top Ten Advertising Movies Reviewed
While we had a tough time getting past the first page of this site on which the very beautiful Susan Jones stares out at us, we finally made it to a story written by Robert Cherry in which he lists and comments on the top ten advertising-related movies. On the list, of course, is, perhaps, the truest movie of them all: Dudley Moore's Crazy People. Also on the list are Lost in America, What Women Want, How to get Ahead in Advertising and several we've never heard of before. So head over to Netflix and give yourself something to do over the holidays.

Favorite line from my favorite movie, Putney Swope (repeated endlessly, without variation, on viewing endless portfolios: "Hol'it right there. I ca see you wunna duh best i' duh bizness."
Usually these were the last words the portfolio shower ever heard from Mr. Swope.
Corrina, Corrina is another cheesy ad classic. Whoopi Goldberg and Ray Liotta singin', "Who says you shouldn't have instant puddin'?"
How to get Ahead in Advertising is hands down the very best of the bunch. "Boil, ooohhh Booooiiillll."
Don't you hate when someone has the same idea as you, but executes it better?
