When the trailer is more interesting than the movie.

David Pogue in his Circuits column writes about the new movie National Treasure and compares it to what he thought he was going to see based on it's trailer.
On the way home, what we discussed wasn’t the plot or the shaky grasp of history. It was all the good stuff we’d seen in the trailers (the ads) that weren’t even *in* the movie.

For example, in one of the trailers, there are shots of the pyramids and other Egyptian landmarks. None of the movie takes place in Egypt.
