22 Movies Whose Product Placement Was Out of Control

Listen, funding a movie is hard. You know how much those things cost these days? No longer can you fund your indie darling with favors from friends and an ocean of credit card debt. Even a quiet little non-blockbuster can cost millions in the modern era, so when a big corporation sidles up with a fat check in exchange for a teensy little mention of their product, it can be hard to keep your integrity intact.

But some movies go way too far. Filmmakers can tell themselves that it’s only natural, in a big car chase, to linger on logos and marvel over features, but audiences are going to notice, and not in the way you want. Instead, they’re going to ask themselves what the odds are that everyone in this cinematic universe loves Diet Cherry Coke. So when user Kovhert asked r/AskReddit, “What movie was basically just an ad?,” Redditors had no problem recalling the two-hour commercials they sat through.
