Just Like 'Heaven'

Analyzing movie poster clones -- We compare and contrast posters from ''My Date with Drew'' and ''Just Like Heaven''

Movies have been cloning one another's publicity posters for years. The latest look-alikes? Billboards for the upcoming comedy Just Like Heaven and the comic documentary My Date With Drew both feature a guy, a girl, and flowers. Which one does it best? Here's a breakdown.

THE GUY Drew director-star Brian Herzlinger's slightly ripped jeans are code for cool, while Mark Ruffalo's drab colors make him look slouchy. One point for Drew.

THE GIRL Drew Barrymore and Reese Witherspoon both have attractively windswept blond hair and sexy smirks, but in Hollywood close-ups rule. One point for Heaven.

FLOWERS Not that size matters, but Herzlinger's sunflower is mighty tall. And we like them that way. One point for Drew.

VERDICT Drew wins this edition of the identical one-sheet wars. Now quote that on your poster!
