least flattering movie synopsis ever

From the Netflix envelope insert of "The Fountain":

"A man travels through time in an epic struggle to save the woman he loves and to understand the mysteries of life in this sci-fi drama. In three parallel stories spanning a millennium, Tom (Hugh Jackman) searches for a legendary tree believed to grant eternal life in 16th-century Spain; tries to discover a cure for his wife's (Rachel Weisz) cancer as a present-day scientist; and traverses the universe as a 26th-century astronaut."

"Travels through time?" "Astronaut?" "Traverses the universe?" "The mysteries of life?" Sure, all of these things are technically accurate, but could they have made it sound a little less L. Ron Hubbard? I would never have rented this movie based on this synopsis. In fact, I'm thinking about quitting Netflix based on this synopsis.

oh my goodness thank you.
Forget that buddy, that was a great movie. Get blockbust t otal access. I pay less then $20 a month and get unlimited new release movies. I just order crap movies from their online then take them in to the store and get anything I am in the mood to watch at that moment in time. Totaly worth it.....oh and to answer a comment you left me about 2 months ago...yes I was single but now I am not and dating a wonderful young lady. I won't go into detail cause I know how you hate "email like comments". I also know you hate people who don't spelll check, but I already gave you one things so have fun redaing this.

Love ya man,
