Never thought those two things would co-exist. Also stars Emile Hirsch, Juno Temple, Gina Gershon, and Thomas Haden Church. Directed by Oscar-winning director William Friedkin (The Exorcist, The French Connection), too.

It'll earn all of $27 at the box office, but $10 of that will be from my wallet.

if the other $10 is mine, who's the cheap one who will go on a tuesday?

I hope you're wrong about your little box office prediction though. This film looks great.

MM can act and I like him. Heck, how can you not like a guy that plays the bongos naked? (or something like that). He just plays in too many movies where the subject matter is something I could care less about. e.g How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days, Ghosts of Girl Friends Past, Surfer Dude, Failure to Launch, Bernie.

I've always found MM and/or the movies he's in to be dull, dull, dull.

After his performance in Reign of Fire, I could easily have seen him becoming an Action Hero type instead of the chick flick stuff.
Oh well....

That would have been ok by me, but maybe not the chicks. Maybe he needed $$$.

My favorite movies of his are A Time to Kill, followed by Reign of Fire and Lincoln Lawyer.

That was no big surprise. And it was too bad because the book was great just like most of Cussler's others with Dirk Pitt. It's strange why they're aren't more movies made from his books, especially when Hollywood seems so hard up for new material.

(Reuters) - Author Clive Cussler told a court on Tuesday that a Hollywood production company ripped the heart out of his book "Sahara" when it was turned into a movie that flopped at the box office.

Oh, I didn't realize that. Although I think most, if not all, my reading of his books was post 1980. And, I don't think I read that book, but not sure...

Anytime is see a NC-17 rating that means full frontal nudity. I know to stay away from that movie. I think its a shame for actors in Hollywood to disgrace themselves.
