Yeah, have u seen no country for old men? while it was decent enough, it has no mass apeal what so ever, oscars, excluding gladiator and titanic, do not translate to box office success

mastermango, you'd better be lying, or you FAIL and won't make it, just to be frank.

Mango, how many people are you trying to get to flame you on all of these moronic responses and topics you have made?

I'm pretty sure the Spiderwich Chronicles have nothing to do with Disney. Therefore the comparison with Eight Below and Bridge should not apply

No, the article says that "Spiderwick Chronicles" is playing out like those two previous President's Day Family Films w/ a solid opening gross and decent holds that would lead to a solid (but unremarkable) sub-100 million gross.

Oh wait, I see what you mean; you're right, Spiderwick is not a disney film.

I too want to add Witless Protection was great. I could have watched On the Waterfront but I wisely chose to see my boy Larry. Check it out.

Why was Be Kind Rewind released on only 808 screens? Makes no sense.

It will and should get a wide-release. I saw it yesterday and theater was full.
It was better than what I thought it would be. The whole cast was exceptional(even Mos Def). One of the better films I've seen in a while.

Vantage Point is a piece of junk - don't waste your time.

It's to bad that Charlie Bartlett did so bad I though it was a pretty good enjoyable movie(B), I also saw Definitely, Mabey(B ) which is the best film I've seen in this young year so far.
