An American Carol: Bad FridayOctober 4, 2008
Box Office Mojo reports that it is finishing ninth as of Friday. As I’ve mentioned in an earlier post, I do not intend to see this movie because the humor doesn’t appeal to me. I know it appeals to a lot of people. The type of people it appeals to will not go out after work on a Friday to see this. They will likely watch it on a Sunday afternoon after church and to get matinee price. As you may notice from the link, Religulous featuring Bill Maher is 10th. This is not a victory for us. An American carol is playing at 3 times the number of theaters as Religulous. We cannot also say that it was for lack of advertising. I live in new York City where this film appeals to virtually no one, but I saw ads every day on television. If this movie does not finish 6th at least, it is a failure. Please get out there, by a ticket and walk into Beverly Hills Chihuahua which will be ten times as entertaining.
