...Bozo the Clown?
Oh, I never want to go back to work! Facebook will do the thinking for us now, as Homer might say. Well, it looks like Johnny Depp's asking price for Pirates of the Caribbean 4 just went up. Alice in Wonderland kicks ass for the third consecutive week in a row! Does it think it's Avatar or something? This is getting out of hand. Clearly the youth bubble hasn't burst yet. At #2 is something called Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Sorry, jocks and cool kids, but you need a new John Hughes to give you voice. Meanwhile, you gotta put up with stuff like this. It's Gordy's revenge, I tells ya. And Ernest. Probably Larry the Cable Guy as well. I get that vibe from it. Then there's The Bounty Hunter. You still got it, Aniston, what can I say? Not quite #1, but hey! They can't all be Marley and Me good. The last debut this week is the new organ donor comedy Repo Men. It's 2004 again and Jude Law's back. A little older, a little wiser, and a little less handsome, I dare say. He's let Hollywood excess finally get to him, but appearing on SNL will usually help a movie debut out, as far as I know. And being on The Daily Show is a new springboard for supporting characters, and the occasional star. Keep your chin up, Josh Gad.
