Quote of the Day: Jennifer Lopez

“Nothing that’s shitty is going to make $100 million.” — Jennifer Lopez, Elle
I agree with the sentiment — there are few examples of wholly meretricious box office success — but disagree with the threshold. To get to the good stuff you either have to head over $200 million (Star Trek, Avatar, Up, The Hangover) or under $50 million (Up In The Air, Funny People, The Hurt Locker, 500 Days of Summer). Its the stuff in the middle, that makes around $100 million (Watchmen, The Ugly Truth, Hannah Montana, Terminator Salvation) that makes up the dreck zone. Unfortunately, Jay-lo has zeroed in on the one box-office bandwidth that does reliably indicate shit.


  1. With The Transformers one and two being the exception that, etc.

  2. I know. What to do about Transformers. They genuinely distress me.
