Trailer Is Misleading for Paddington

Ok, not THIS misleading
I saw the trailer for Paddington and wrote it off immediately. Lots of silly potty humor. I guess that gets the kids in but for me and my kids, we rolled our eyes. See for yourself:

I mean seriously. He's eating ear wax? This looked Alvin and the Chipmunks bad.

Well looks like the reviews are in and it appears this is a huge hit with critics at 97%. This begged the question, do the marketers of these movies believe that kids are just into this? Maybe writing off adults entirely? The trailer just stinks of cynicism with the basest humor, and it appears this isn't really representative of the movie.

Bad trailers really can make or break a movie and if this movie is good, I hope it can overcome very bad marketing. Kids need better than the Smurfs movie.
