Mammoth succeeds over beaver

The weekend box office receipts underline my earlier post about family films as Ice Age: The Meltdown racked in $70.5 million dollars, and Sharon what WAS she thinking Stoned's Basic Instinct 2 couldn't even subpoena enough people to suffer through it.

But hell's bells, do NOT think the movie was badly made or roundly thrashed by the critics...

The movie failed because [wait for it, wait for it] It's ALL GW Bush's fault!

Paul Verhoeven, director of the first "Basic Instinct" (which scored $353 million worldwide) as well as the widely ridiculed "Showgirls" (now regarded as something of a camp classic), attributes the genre's demise to the current American political climate.

"Anything that is erotic has been banned in the United States," said the Dutch native. "Look at the people at the top (of the government). We are living under a government that is constantly hammering out Christian values. And Christianity and sex have never been good friends."

Well, another thing we can be sure of. Paulie has taken the victimhood lessons to heart and he reads a lot of Pandagon.net.

Sharon must have been stoned. Or in debt big-time for some purchase or another.
