As tradition dictates, it's time to take a look at this week's Box Office horse race. But before we do that, let me just preface it by saying something that might shock you, surprise you, even educate you. Everyone's heard about the infamous Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon game, but it wasn't always called that. It originated in the bowels of Microsoft when the internet was first taking off, and it was called the Six Degrees of Bombs Away, a movie filmed in Seattle. Apparently they didn't copyright it as vigorously as Windows 3.1 'cuz they would've made a ton of money off it, off of T-shirts alone.
And so, in honor of this nugget of history, we now take a look at the Box Office. At #10, The Da Vinci Code ... starring Tom Hanks who was in The Ladykillers directed by Joel Coen who also directed The Big Lebowski starring David Huddleston who is the father of Michael Huddleston who is the STAR of Bombs Away. Need more be said?
9. The Break-Up featuring Judy Davis who starred in Absolute Power with Gene Hackman who appeared in Wyatt Earp who also featured Michael Huddleston as Albert, who STARRED in... BOMBS AWAY.
8. Waist Deep directed by Vondie Curtis-Hall who appeared in Falling Down starring Michael Douglas who produced One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest starring Christopher Lloyd who appeared in Three Warriors with Michael Huddleston, the STAR of ... BOMBS AWAY!!!!
7. The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift starring Lucas Black who appeared as Ebb in The War starring Frodo himself, Elijah Wood (as Stu) who was in the LOTR trilogy directed by Peter Jackson who also directed The Frighteners starring Jeffrey Combs who appeared in Castle Freak as John Reilly which was produced by Charles Band who co-wrote Bad Channels starring Michael Huddleston as Corky who also... was that more than six? Close enough.
6. The Lake House starring Sandra Bullock (incidentally, was that a nip slip on the cover of Vanity Fair? Or was it totally planned?) who made her first debut in Love Potion No. 9 which features Anne Bancroft as Madame Ruth, who also played Dr. Catherine Holland in Mr. Jones which also stars Tom Irwin as Dr. Robert Shaye who played Gary in Men Don't Leave which also features Arliss Howard who was in The Prodigal with Susan Ludlow who played Lilian in ... B.A.
5. Nacho Libre starring Jack Black who appeared in Bob Roberts starring (and directed by) Tim Robbins who appeared in High Fidelity with Joan Cusack who starred in A Smile Like Yours with Michael Santo who is in ... Bombs Away! oops, one step too many, better tweak the software.
4. Cars starring Paul Newman who starred in The Hudsucker Proxy directed by Joel Coen who directed The Big Lebowski starring David Huddleston who is the father of Michael Huddleston who STARS in Bombs Away
3. Click starring Adam Sandler who was in Anger Management with Heather Graham (unbilled) who appeared in Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle directed by Alan Rudolph who also directed Trouble in Mind featuring Mara Scott-Wood who IS the voice of M.A.R.Y. in ... YGI! (you guessed it)
2. In a surprise move, about as surprising as Waist Deep, it's The Devil Wears Prada starring Meryl Streep who played Karen Traynor in The Seduction of Joe Tynan which also starred Rip Torn who appeared in Jinxed! with Bette Midler who appeared in Bette Midler: Ol' Red Hair Is Back (1978) (TV) which was co-written by Pat McCormick who stars as The Dispatcher in ...BOMBS AWAY
And finally... 1: And finally, Superman Returns which stars Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor who also stars as Subway Thief in Heartburn which was written by Nora Ephron who made, well, let's face it, she was the real star of Sleepless in Seattle which was Second Unit photographed by Marty Oppenheimer, the First Unit big cheese cameraman on... BOMBS AWAY!!!!! Small world, that Daily Planet, indeed...
Whew! got through that. Well, hope you enjoyed yourselves. Catch ya later on down the trail. And remember, if you want Box Office analysis, you didn't get it here! :)
