    I like Sacha but the Howard Stern Show Curse has now officially

    fucked his movies chances of not bombing.


    I say it will come in no higher then number 4 and will make around $12 million over the weekend and will be dead and forgotten by the end of May.


    The Howard Stern Show Curse, movie stars should fear it

    I haven't heard the show today and only have seen the TV commercials for this flic but it looks like bomb to me :dontknow:

    Bruno also did a lot to ruin Sacha in the US market IMO, although I liked it ok.

    Pretty sure that means it has a limited premier on the 11th and goes wide in theaters on the 16th.

    Larry Charles directing makes me somewhat interested, but I'll wait for the reviews.

    I am using Microsofts Dawgsaloon Notes...

    I am not saying the movie will suck ...I am saying the HSS curse will fuck it at the box office..

    I said in the OP I like Sacha

    Well, the relay race clip was funny, but not much else.

    When his characters are bumping up against real people in real situations he's hysterical, but when things are scripted among actors, it's lame. He did a scripted movie with his Ali G character that was really weak.

    He's really talented, though. He was really good in "Hugo" and "Sweeney Todd". He's pissin' in tall weeds with big dogs: Scorcese, Tarantino, Burton, acting alongside Russell Crowe, Ben Kinglsey, DiCaprio, Helena Bonzo Carter...............he's in, and he's going to stay in no matter what "The Dictator" does.

    I will support the box office by paying if it's not too crowded.

    Have to admit...prior to a few days ago, I wasn't entirely aware of this movie.
    I saw "The Dictator" on some release schedules awhile back but never realized it was a Sacha Baron Cohen movie.
    And I like his movies. But yea there's doesn't seem to be much buzz about it.
    It's lucky it opens against Battleship because that is a terrible fucking piece of crap and is going to (or should) flop badly.
    But with the Avengers probably still cleaning up for a couple more weeks and Dark Shadows might end up cornering the comedy audience a week before and Men In Black 3 a week after....I don't think The Dictator is gonna do very well even if it's good. Probably gets lost in the shuffle.....

    I think Dark Shadows will do better though.

    it will get annihilated -- they were probably hoping for Thor type numbers from the Avengers when they scheduled it, instead they have this juggernaut that will rack up numbers til the 4th of July -- hell, I'm tempted to go see it again this weekend, in 3D this time

    I would rush out to see it, Borat is one of my favorite movies, but I feel like I got burned by Bruno -- I'm no longer in that I gotta see it the first day crowd

    The movie looks stupid, pretty much a knock-off of Murphy's Coming to America. The only thing I've seen Cohen in was a few minutes of the Ali G show, which was bloody awful. His fruit loopy king was the highlight of Madagascar though.

    It will probably bomb, but not as badly as Dark Shadows will.
