Turn Who On, Now?

Sometimes, a fellow can spend all day on the iTunes trailer page, you know? Especially when there are films like Turn Me On, Dammit!, with taglines like this one:

Hee hee! I know the question is supposed to be rhetorical, but there are any number of answers. Here's one: maybe it's because a teenage girl who wants to have sex can usually get that taken care of, especially when she looks like this:

I mean, a film needs drama, right? Some difficulty, some obstacle to overcome? Nobody makes movies about teenage boys who want to have sex when the teenage boy looks like this:

Instead, they usually involve teenage boys who look more like this:

But it would be a bold filmmaker who cast the female version of McLovin in the lead of a teenage sex comedy. You know, the sort of filmmaker who'd make something like Welcome to the Dollhouse:

Anyway, it's fun (after a manner of speaking) to do another trailer comparison on this one. The iTunes version tones down the title - from "Goddammit" to "Dammit" - cleans up the masturbation scene, and dispenses with all the genital jokes in favor or an incredibly creepy (given the juxtaposition with a 15-year-old girl) Orson Welles(?) ballad. This other one? Dirty talk and funky tunes, and a much better sense of what the film is like. Content warning in effect.
