You just have to love Hollywood, in a “loser brother-in-law who won’t get a job, drinks all your beer and keeps you entertained due to your sheer amazement at his stupidity” sort of way. Now they’re blaming Bush and his ilk when their films tank.
Paramount Films’ “Alfie”, about a womanizer, played by Jude Law, was a total floater at the box office after it opened. Wayne Llewellyn, the president of distribution at Paramount, said that the conservative ethos reflected in last week’s election results might have hurt the film. Quoted in the New York Times (so you know it must be true) , Llewellyn said, “It could be the mood of the country right now. It seems to be the result of the election. Maybe they didn’t want to see a guy that slept around.”
There you go. It’s Bush’s fault, and it’s your fault. Could it be that their film blew chunks like a Saturday night beer bonger after a marathon frat party? Nah!
Think about it. They’re now accusing mainstream Americans, in angry condescension no less, of having good taste! That’s an insult we should gracefully accept.
