Default Jessica Simpson movie makes $384 opening day

http://www.obsessedwithfilm.com/movi...-of-the-48.php

2007 began with news about ZYZZYX ROAD, the Leo Grillo/Katherine Heigl/Tom Sizemore film that made history by becoming the lowest grossing movie of all time ($20 from one screen).

It’s perhaps fitting that as the year comes to a close we hear about BLONDE AMBITION, a Jessica Simpson movie that has just racked up an astonishing $384 opening day.

/Film gives us the following:-

“Blonde Ambition averaged $48 per screen on Friday for a total box office of $384. Based on an $8 ticket price, that means that 6 people paid to see the movie at each of those theatres, and only 48 people went to see the movie! That’s amazing! One of the worst performances a movie has ever had.

“I am projecting that Jessica’s “star vehicle” will gross just $1,190 this weekend or $149 per location.”

Simpson’s movie only played on eight screens, but if these numbers are proof of anything, it’s that Jessica is not a movie star. She belongs on reality television and the run of dreadful sounding movies she’s doing will likely ensure that she returns to the small screen.

With BLONDE AMBITION, Simpson’s clearly riffing on Melanie Griffith’s turn in WORKING GIRL, and up next she’ll ape Goldie Hawn’s PRIVATE BENJAMIN in the ironically titled MAJOR MOVIE STAR. There’s also been talk of her taking a run at PRETTY WOMAN territory in a remake (read: “re-imagining” to navigate copyright laws).

Spare a thought for Luke Wilson, though. Not only has he appeared in this travesty he’s also seen his film IDIOCRACY buried by Fox. That film may yet acquire a cult following thanks to the emergence of Brawndo as a real product.

However I can’t see the same happening with BLONDE AMBITION. The only thing this film seems good for is a pre-Waterboarding torture warm-up for detainees at Guantanamo Bay.

On one hand, it's nice to know that people won't just go to the movies to see anything. Sometimes it seems that way, when you hear about all these stupid movies doing well, but not this time.

On the other hand, now that people are ignoring it, it makes me wonder if the movie is actually good. I know it stars Jessica Simpson and it doesn't sound interesting... but maybe they pulled it off. That's just how I think. I usually don't share the majority opinion. The fact that this movie wasn't seen by alot of people almost makes it interesting to me. I won't watch it, though. I've got better things to do.

On a side note, though, I did stay up to see The Negotiator (starring Samuel L. Jackson) on TV last night despite the fact that I was dead tired. Now that's a good movie.

One can tell just from the name of the movie thats its gonna be shit, let alone the cast, funny shit. Oh well, i'm sure the people that spent their money watching that movie did so just to oogle on Jessica Simpson in an empty cinema.
