Box Office Bitches

Will the real Sex and the City cast please step forward.

Box Office Mojo reports, “It was Princesses over Persia among new releases, but the Middle Eastern desert romps generated such little heat that a relatively low-grossing Shrek movie topped them in its second weekend.” Ouch. Look, both Princess of Persia (as I like to call it) and Sex and the City Par Deux seemed so uninteresting, that no kidding they didn’t live up to the expectations of the Hollywood suites.  My friend Annie likes to say, ”Who wants to see a bunch of middle aged woman acting like they are still in their thirties, drinking and talking about sex.” Though The First Wives Club was a smashing success, it is hard to predict what will make audiences respond. I think it is a shame that the studio, Michael Patrick King and Sarah Jessica Parker (as producer) could not get a handle on what is clearly a horrendous script and all around tacky fare. And as much of a Liza Minelli fan that I am, the thought of using her in such a faggity way is just a testament to why this whole group needs to be put to rest once and for all. I just saw Kim Catrall play against type in The Ghost Writer, and I suggest all these girls do the same. SJP is now spread so thin between her Bravo television stuff and being the new Halston (ish), who knows what will stick with her. She was so amazing in Miami Rhapsody, I wish she would find a script like that again.

Jake's pouty look reminds me of Loredana Jolie.

As for the Prince of Persia, I preferred Jake Gyllenhaal as an indie actor and this leap to action hero is so pretentious, that he might want to go back to his roots. I don’t care how cute he is…he needs to do meaningful films like James Franco and not try to compete with The Rock.

    Middle aged? Aren't some of them 60 + ?
