Merry Christmas Jessica Simpson
Lots of movies get very small releases with no promotion and do a quick visit to the box office on the fast track towards a Blockbuster near you but you'd expect a bad movie with Jessica Simpson would have some promotion and even. A new Jessica Simpson movie came out this weekend called Blonde Ambition, who knew and who cares. Sports fan know that she ruined the Cowboys game last weekend and was the butt of a few jokes delivered Terrell Owens. Blonde Ambition comes from the same director who spoiled a great idea of competing Bar Mitzvahs in the very underwhelming Jeremy Piven movie Keeping Up with the Steins.
But Blonde Ambition must have been a huge mess, according to imdb:
"... Blonde Ambition, co-starring Luke Wilson, took in just $1,190 over the weekend. True, it was shown in only eight Texas theaters, but that's still an average of less than $50 per theater per day, meaning about six people showed up to see it in each location each day."
According to another blog, "Blonde Ambition is a modern re-make of the popular Working Girl." I mean this movie was due for a remake, it is almost 20 years old. That film starred MElanie Griffith, Harrison Ford, Sigourney Weaver, Alec Bladwin, Joan CUsac and Oliver Platt. Who fucking comes up with these ideas? They should be hung. And shouldn't Luke Wilson know better, he already made two movies with blonde in the title, Legally Blonde 1 and 2. His blonde movie quota is full till the turn of the decade.
And Simpson's career might actually be over. Pick up the phone Jessica, Playboy is making an offer for a spread. I know someone would pay to see that.
Merry Christmas to my five readers.
