“Four Christmases” Plows Towards $100 Million…How?
Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon have a mystical hold on the United States. They are able to star in crap like “Four Christmases” and, after two weeks, get seventy million bucks worth of dumbasses in the seats. Of course, my ass is unfortunately included in that collection. Yes, I realize that I am knocking people for going to see this movie when I was one of them. The difference is that I am ashamed of this fact.
The best box office news of the year is the performance of “Role Models”. It’s made $61 million and will probably top out around $64 or 65 million. It’s great news because it features two underrated comedic actors (Paul Rudd, Seann William Scott) and it’s an insanely vulgar R-rated comedy. I can only hope that this proves to studio heads that Paul Rudd can play a lead in a comedy like this one. We need more Paul Rudd.
