Gay cowboys battle fat crossdressers.

January 30th, 2006

Big Momma’s House 2 made $28 million in a single weekend.

Which is more than 1/2 the total amount of money Brokeback Mountain has made in eight WEEKS.

I guess America doesn’t really love gay cowboys after all.

What we really adore is crossdressers.

I’m glad we finally got that straightened out.

    And the Big Momma’s House has not had the benefit of 3-7 articles a day in every major newspaper. And that just includes the articles on the front page. It is amazing how much free press Brokeback got and yet it still did not produce great results at the box office. (except in San Francisco and the Village in NY)

    Remember that Big Momma’s House is in much wider release than Brokeback Mountain has been.

    Or, you can compare the last Martin Lawrence movie to the last Ang Lee movie for some trend lines.

    That’s true, Jay.

    On the other hand:

    Big Momma has a big average of $8,586 per theater.

    Brokeback Mountain’s average per theater is just $3842.

    And that’s despite the fact that Brokeback won four Golden Globes AND is certain to sweep the Oscars.

    I’m telling you, the crossdresser is kicking some serious cowboy butt. :)

    […] You probably figured my dislike for Brokeback Mountain (as illustrated here and here) means I dislike gay people. […]
