Video: The Proposal With Ryan Reynolds & Sandra Bullock

Here is the trailer for "The Proposal" featuring Ryan Reynolds & Sandra Bullock and also featuring Betty White. 

You might remember last month we posted a funny behind the scenes comedy piece of Ryan going off on Betty White. So far, comedies, which there has been a lack of so far this year, are what people want to see in this craptastic economy.  Not explosions. Not car chases. But straight funny comedies. Note to the industry: comedies are cheaper to make than whack movies like "Land Of The Lost."

Will "The Hangover" hang on to number 1 with "The Proposal" and "Year One" opening this weekend?-Dr.FB

The Hangover Goes Another Round At #1

"The Hangover" did what most movies have not been able to do this year and that is repeat at #1 for the 2nd week in a row.

Not only did it retain the #1 spot but it only dropped about 26% percent from the week before.  It raked in 33 Million, about 11 million less than the week before.  Land of the Lost was down over 51 percent.  You could not get me to see Land of the Lost even if I was going to see it with twins.  Not. Gonna. Happen.

It's nice to know that it seems I was the only one who thought "The Hangover" was gonna be a smash as Hollywood insiders are still surprised at what it is doing. Good word of mouth goes a long way as the movie has grossed over $100 million in 10 days.-Dr.FB

The Hangover Is Box Office Patron

On May 26th, I wrote this and at the end of the story I said "If people thought Terminator opened up poorly, wait til June 5th to see “Land Of The Lost” bomb." The movie is sucking donkey balls.

"The Hangover" is killing the box office and only bloggers out of touch are saying this is an unexpected hit. 

The promotion started early and stars Bradley Cooper from "Wedding Crashers", Ed Helms from the cult pop culture TV show "The Office" and a crazy appearance by Mike Tyson.  Add on top of all of that, it is directed by the director of "Old School" which is one of the funniest movies of this decade next to "Wedding Crashers" and you knew this movie was gonna be big.

This movie had hit written all over it and it looks like you all agree and why I covered "The Hangover" premiere and ignored "Land Of The Lost" completely. 

The first real comedy of the summer and it is one hangover you are going to want to experience.-Dr.FB

The Terminator has one movie to pass to make number 1 and it couldn't do it.  What stood in Christian Bale's path?  Ben Stiller.

It was a dismal Memorial Day Weekend and it is because there was no salvation for the Terminator.  Grossing $53 million over the weekend and $67 million over 5 days, it was out performed in less days by Stiller's "Night At The Museum 2" pulling in $70 million in just 4 days. 

A lot of people I know did not see the movie because there was no Ahhhhnold.  If people thought Terminator opened up poorly, wait til June 5th to see "Land Of The Lost" bomb.-Dr.FB
