Da Vinci Code Cracked

The numbers from the weekend are in and X-Men 3 took $102 on its opening weekend. Da Vinci Code only managed $34 million which was a massive 57% decline from its first weekend.

This would tend to indicate that the film is not going to be anywhere near as successful as the book was, which was always on the cards.

The subject matter was touchy and controversial to say the least. The release strategy was also bizarre. They wanted to open early to avoid the heart of the summer but only had one weeks grace before they were swamped by the X-Factor.

As for MI:3, it opened with $48 million but since then has only managed weekends of 25, 11, 7 and 9 respectively.

This week, the new film opening is The Break-Up starring Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston which is meant to be a huge turkey.

Our Rachel hasn't had much success with the big screen but then again her choices have been pretty awful. She's the One, Picture Perfect and 'Til There Was You were all her being typecast as Ms Green.

Office Space was great but her part there was more of a cameo. Good Girl was so-so as was Rock Star. Bruce Almighty and Along Come Polly were just further examples of her playing the second fiddle. Rumor Has It and Friends With Money both didn't do much.

She has three more movies on her slate in which she is starring and is also producing as well. Easily the most profilic of the six Friends since the show has finished but not even this has helped her in making a successful transition.

Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer all appear to be busy as well - not that it has helped them break the Friends mold. Then again it's not that easy to cross over - just ask the cast of Seinfeld.

Lisa Kudrow and Matt LeBlanc don't appear to be as active but not that it matters. They each made at least $40 million from the last two seasons of Friends, not forgetting what they made in the first eight as well as endorsements and the like.

I like JA and hope her luck turns as she deserves better. She hasn't had the best of luck with her relationships and there are also all the well documented problems with her mother.

Brad was no idiot. If you are going to leave a great girl like JA - it ain't going to be for just anybody.

PS: It's amazing what a difference it makes if a woman covers up her nipples and areola.

The Da Vinci Code truly bored me at the movies. It's a shame, it had so much potential. However, mmots Dan Brown fans know that Angel & Demons is the better book.
