Looks like Shout used a Meme Generator to make the cover for this

That's actually the original poster art for the movie. Nice that they're using it, but still...

Why… why add the blue border? Why repeat the title? Why? Ghastly.

Not a DVD cover, but the airbrushing/photoshopping of Jennifer Garner’s body is really disturbing me.

It looks like a cover to a video game I would have bought in the late nineties.

Somehow makes the film look like The Hangover Pt. 2.

I don't know. The style looks off for the movie (it reminds me of Criterion's The Organizer) and the cover is overloaded with stuff (especially in comparison with the previous main visuals for the movie which tend to be lighter in elements).

It's a reference to the style and color scheme of the original poster. It changes it from a close up to a wide shot from the same scene.

I don't see anything wrong with that cover. I quite like it.
