I don't get people like this. Sure Jersey Girl has its work cut out for it because of Gigli. Sure, films released in January and Febuary are weaker compared to the summer and holiday film seasons. Probably the big reason why it was pushed to that time was because of Gigli. Miramax found out how bad it was and wanted to distance themselves from it. It won't be that big a gamble for them anyway because usually Kevin's films don't get Jery Bruckheimer ad campaigns. Plus, Hollywood doesn't hate Kevin. He won't be looking to get his job back at the Quick Stop. His movies have always been under budget and shot ahead of schedule. Though he has yet to enjoy a big payday at the box office, he hasn't lost anybody Waterworld type money so he'll continue to get work. It's the same reason Clint Eastwood still gets directing jobs. Bottom line, let's hold off on Jersey Girl until it comes out. Then if its bad, I'll be one of the first to rip into it.
