: Actually, now that I think about it. Since Kevin DOES so much cool shit like that for his fans, it makes me wonder WHY you so desperately want the movie to flop?

: Seriously? I'm curious.

First things first, I think I'd be pretty "pumped" about a movie if the director flew me to an advance screening. Heck, see my post about Elvis' handlers and his black-belt. Maybe some of them actually believed Elvis knew Karate. Maybe...or not.

I don't want to see this movie fail, but I think it will. I have always respected Kevin because I have always seen him as being "outside" the Hollywood mainstream, doing his own thing, his own way. You can't get any more "establishment" than casting Ben-J'Lo in a picture. I always thought Kevin's writing was enough to carry a movie and although he employed big names in movies like Dogma and numerous big name cameos in Jay and Silent Bob movie, his writing and clever stories were enough to carry a movie. Most other directors/writers in Hollywood today have to rely on tricks or special effects or even big name mainstream "hot" actors. By putting Ben and J-lo in this movie, he has lost my respect. Who cares what I think anyway? More importantly, the American public seems to be sick of having Ben-and Jen shoved down their throats. I think this is at least partially to blame for the failure of Gigli and will also play a role in the success or lack thereof when Jersey Girl comes to the theaters. Hopefully, I'm wrong.
