What Sucks… American Movie Goers

Okay America, this weekend is your big chance. You have a bevy of films opening up this weekend and I’m just saying that perhaps you should go see them, or check out the ones that you’ve been putting off seeing because well, FOR THE PAST TWO WEEKS BEVERLY HILLS CHIHUAHUA WAS NUMBER 1!

Let me repeat, Beverly Hills Chihuahua was # 1, TWO weeks in a row? What. The. F. By the way, I thought we were in an economic meltdown- people still have money to spend on Beverly Hills Chihuahua? These are end of times, aren’t they? Sarah Palin could be VP, banks can’t stay open- and it’s not like they have long hours or anything and now a movie about talking Chihuahuas is number one at the box office two weeks in a row.

Look, I’m not much for dolling out advice, but here’s some- don’t start any new books, you won’t get to finish them, - the four horsemen are on their way.

Here's my theory why this turd of a movie is so successful in these tumultuous times: People are going to see it because they're working up the nerve to kill themselves, and they think that sitting through an entire screening of "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" will be enough to put them over the precipice -- that extra little bit of motivation that life is completely hopeless and devoid of all joy, and that the only escape is the cold welcoming arms of death.

weren't movies pretty popular during the depression? granted they cost a lot less, but i thought they were well attended cause people couldn't afford much else and needed to be carried away. maybe they are sticking to calgon for that now.

I don't know anything, but if for the last 2 weeks 4 people went to the movies each week and 2 each week went to see this movie, wouldn't it be the number one movie? Just a thought!

Does this have to do with the "tweens" basically controlling the marketplace nowadays?
