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.
