To be fair, there's not a single movie worth going to see right now. People want to go see something, so something has to take it.

Curious George at least has some artistic merit.

There being no god is old news. It was confirmed two weeks ago when Big Momma's House 2 was number one.


And Curious George was a cute movie, worth seeing. My boyfriend was laughing through the whole thing, and I was laughing inside. Not bad at all for G rated movie.

This is the greatest thing ever. Certainly in the OTT at least.

I think the Pink Panther looks good. Steve Martin is a very funny dude. Why all the hate?

well being that they pulled the movie from its original release date because it was so bad should say something for the quality of the film

The only movie on that entire list that ive heard good things about is Hoodwinked. I guess if people really have to go to the movies they will watch whatevers there.

It's the beginning of the year, where most of the crappy movies are released in theatres. Don't expect too much out of America's tastes.

Actually, I saw FD3 and liked it. The same creators did the first one, which I also liked, and also the better X-Files episodes (the early ones). The rest, I have to agree, are asstacular.

I second that steve martin hilarious but come on fd3 opening with $20 million you'd think death had enough of dumb kids that suddenly develop psychic powers that allow them to see people's deaths. The first one was bad enough already.

I hate to agree, I really do, but that scene where he's trying to pronounce "hamburger" cracks me up.

When the commercials first started airing I just plain hated them, but they've grown into one of those things that I love to hate (not a bad thing). Like watching a movie that's so bad it's good.

would things be any better if final destination opened at #1, or When a Stranger Calls stayed on top for another week?

Saw Pink Panther at a screening on Thursday, and then saw FD3 on Friday. Pink Panther was an incredibly stupid, fun movie. Every once in a while a dumb movie can hit the spot.

FD3... there was not one surprise in the way people where killed. No "bus" scene from the first movie. Can't really suggest it.

We just got Brokeback Mountain and there were tons of women coming to see it as well as guys that were tricked by their wives (at least until I spilled the beans and then they got pissed).

To be fair this is a kids movie and it did well with the kids. One of our employees dressed just like the inspector and sounded like him too. Also Nanny Mcphee and Curious George did phenomenally well as a family movie. I figured Final Destination would have been the #1 movie (not that it deserves it) but even Firewall did better at our theater.

Yeah, It gives you something to do with friends. But at this point it seems people will watch anything even if it's crap.
