poster convergence: ‘When in Rome’ and ‘Leap Year’

I hope this isn’t going to be a trend for 2010: posters that reduce women to simpering little girls.
Really, Amy Adams? Might you just faint your little old self at the prospect of an engagement ring? Is this 1815? Are you a character in a Jane Austen novel? Hell, I take that back: Jane Austen’s characters were more grownup than you are.

Really, Kristen Bell? Are you a naughty little thing who just got caught with her hand in the man jar? Oh my goodness: boys! Tee-hee-hee!

Why do marketers think this crap still sells? Or maybe the more pertinent question is: Why does this crap still sell? Why are so many people completely incapable of seeing women as adult people?
