If I were forced to choose between seeing this and copulating with yoda, I'd cut my eyes out and take Yoda.

Which do you think is the worse trailer:

THIS or The Mask 2 with the dancing CG baby?

God I guess it just goes to show that people will make anything. I mean...the original wasn't exactly a rousing success. Though I guess a 27 million gross against 13 million budget is enough to warrant a sequel.

But...I mean...like...I...don't even know what to say.

Baby Geniuses, Mask 2, Anaconda 2. They must be profitable but I can't imagine anyone is actually going to enjoy these!

After watching that, the trailer for something like Paparazzi doesn't seem quite as bad as before.

Then you're missing out on seeing Academy Award winner Jon Voight at his finest.

Wow. Just wow. There have been some horrific movies, and there have been some horrific sequels to horrific movies. But that one takes the cake.

Boy. This must be the year of the sequels that I never would have thought would have earned a sequel. I mean The Whole Ten Yards, Pitch Black, and now a sequel to Baby Geniuses. Come on Hollywood execs, think!

Why, why, why, why???

It makes me sad that the guy who directed a classic like "A Christmas Story" has turned to doing crap like this. What went wrong?

I think they should do a midnight opening for this like they did with Catwoman. Clearly, there's a market for this.

Home video, my friend. Family films can easily triple their BO gross on home video.

Wow, that was just...painful.

Apparently the cocaine problem in Hollywood is worse than we thought.

While the film only made $27 million, I've heard from various sources that the film's budget was quite a bit less than the reported $13 million over at IMDB (I've heard $6-10 million). It was done on the quick and cheap, and the producers scored big. Especially when the film hit video.

While the sequel might not make as much as the original, I'm sure the buget is quite low enough for it to be profitable to the film's producers. Hell, Scott Baio can't cost that much.

How the mighty Scott Baio hath fallen.

Then again...

Perhaps this movie will make enough to warrant a third movie and then we can finally have a triology worthy enough to rival that of the orginal Star Wars!
