: Dude, I just wanted to take a second to say thank you for this fine film
of yours. I was definately bummed when I saw the weekend numbers, but I'm
still giddy as all else knowing that it was the biggest VA opening EVER,
and that alot of us cats (all right now you've got ME sayin it) are gonna
see it again this week (personally, I've seen it three times already- the
test, the sneak, and on sat), and make it not the sleeper hit of the
summer, but the word of mouth hit of the YEAR. Remember Scream? It
didn't hit #1 until it was out almost a MONTH! We're gonna beat em by
hitting #1 next week, dammit! I know, I know word of mouth on "Bubble
Boy" is so fantastic, how the hell are we gonna do it? simple. by being
the best fans of the best movie made FOR fans EVER. So thanks Kev, and
I''m already waiting in line for the next pic.... and the dvd.... and
Fletch Won... and Cell Out.... and....
'Something About Mary' worked the same way. In fact, SAM came out at
almost this exact time, and opened at number 5 or something, and then shot
up to #1 a couple of weeks later (thanks to word of mouth), and couldn't
be knocked from the top spot for over a month!
I've got to think word-of-mouth will be better for this film. It's far
funnier; even though Ben Still is comedic gold.
