When it comes to the domain of film poster taglines, there’s a thin line between acceptable and downright toe-curling; though, if you’re wondering, The Thin Red Line (every man fights his own war) absolutely nails it.

Not every film is as lucky, of course, and that also goes for the downright classics, which you probably won't remember for their cheesy poster taglines. Nor want to remember either.

But too bad - here are 15 of the most infamous of the lot...
