“NEW YEAR’S EVE” FLOPPED BECAUSE THE AUDIENCE REMEMBERED HOW BAD “VALENTINES DAY ” WAS
There’s a good reason why the box office returns this past weekend were at a record low: the new releases were incredibly bad. “New Year’s Eve” only pulled in $13.7 million dollars (Jonah Hill’s poorly reviewed “The Sitter” took second place with 10 million.) Last February the same team who did “New Year’s Eve” released the similar “Valentine’s Day” to an opening of $56.3 million. So why didn’t the audience flock to see this year’s Garry Marshall star studded extravaganza? Because the audience REMEMBERED how disappointing “Valentines Day” was. A multitude of attractive stars (above) cannot save a LAME script and a tired predictable story. Hopefully the movie audience is actually getting smarter about their choices.
