Umm, that's not quite right

A 8.5 x 11 flyer for a local art house movie theater appeared in my mail box a few days ago. It's the movies that are coming soon, with a paragraph describing each. Most of it is fairly expected stuff - only three of twelve movies are American; at least one of those is an Indie and another stars actors with Indie cred still, i.e., Christian Bale. Then there's the comedy Knocked Up that came out a couple months ago.

That seems a little out of place to me. And, well, I just noticed the flyer thinks that it came out in 2006, which is wrong, but whatever. It was a pretty funny movie; they can show whatever they want. Then it finishes with the sentence, "Full of laughs yet keenly observant of human nature, this terrific comedy was nominated for four teen choice awards."

Nominated for four teen choice awards. First, is that a normal art house badge of honor? Second, is there any irony at all in a Rated R movie being a teen choice award? I'm sure all the teens went to see it with their parents, though.

Uh huh.
