  • hello

    It is a hit financially and it is critically acclaimed. Bravo.

  • JESSICA

    PEOPLE LISTEN UP AN ACTOR/ ACTRESS CANNOT OPEN A MOVIE, IF THE MOVIE APPEALS TO THE AUDIENCE THEN IT WILL BE A HIT. SPORT MOVIES DONT DO THAT GOOD. BUT THEN AGAIN THE BLIND SIDE OPENED WITH 3O+ MILI. INFACT BRAD PITT IS NOT APPEALING ANYMORE.

  • busted

    Well let’s see.. Jenny poo could not make 6.8 million on her movie by herself.

    the JenHens are very very silly.. You are setting yourselves up yet again to look like the pathetic fools you have looked like for almost 7 years. I guess all that bashing and whinnying about Brad didn’t keep people from seeing and praising Moneyball. Sucks huh.. has you precious Aniston ever had a file where the critics raved about her..

    Oh pull out The Good Girl. LOL

    You better get used to hearing Brad’s name.. You will for months to come.

  • nakedoldjennifer

    Did I mention how Good Brad looked – HANDSOME Just Gorgeous!

  • JIONI

    WOW WHAT A FLOP. BRAD PITT CANNOT BEAT A 30 YEAR OLD CARTOON AT THE BOX OFFICE LOL.. SHAMEFULL

  • hello

    The total is for 1 day, that means a blockbuster worldworld. This is an international superstar. There is no need to mention JA, he said he does not waant to be encumbered with his past. He made mention of how bored he was in his previous life and how things changed for the better. Move on.

  • betta

    The movie was projected to make about $7 million for Friday and it did. How is that a fail. Sports movies never do well. You can look at the BoxOfficeMojo chart for sports movies and very few have reached anywhere near $100 million. Not a fail at all.
    Pitt and all of the cast were absolutely fantastic in this in.

  • BRAT SPITT

    I AM SURE IF JEN WAS IN A MOVIE WITH SUCH GREAT REVIEWS THE MOVIE WILL OPEN IN THE TEEN NOT FREAKING 6 MILI ON A 50 MILI BUDGET. LIKE COME ON THE BOUNTY HUNTER WAS TRASHED BY CRITICS BUT STILL OPENED TO HIGHER NUMBERS ON A WAY LESSER BUDGET. BRAD PITT IS OFFICIALLY A Z LIST ACTOR LOL

  • ladyboy iz his name

    Sony was hoping for an 8 million day. Ladyboy failed. 60% of the people watching monkey all are over 50. Ladyboys fans r old AZ chit lol

  • MONEY BALL IA A FLOP

    MONEY BALL FLOPPED. MY PRAYERS WHERE ANSWERED. YAYYY

  • Linda

    Moneyball ruled Friday box office. Great for Brad. I can’t wait for award season.

  • hello

    Congrats to Brad and the fans. Good going and more to come during the oscar seasons!!!

  • Carly

    Brad never made bad movies ever since 2005. He has been in his most creative phase of his life.

  • loser brad pitt

    @betta: your funny.. lets see how far he will go selling a base ball movie abroad. if americans did not respond to it, is now foreigners who hv no knowledge of the sport. brad pitt is no sandra bullock.

  • bdj

    These delusional hens are too funny. Moneyball is a great flick. It is one of the best movies of the year. Baby Jane and her two hens are spinning, spinning, spinning. Baby Jane can’t open a Donut shop. Run back to McGreedy and McNeedy thread and praise the fake romance. It is more your speed paid hen. Geez, the Bounty Hunter has been used as a poor example throughout the Internet. Hens have their talking points. I guess it is to pump up Gerry’s critical bomb out today. Baby Jane rom com has been pushed back to never land and hopefully straight to Lifetime channel. Nice try hens.

  • ladyboy iz his name

    @MONEY BALL IA A FLOP: ~prayer circle~ Old people not allowed….that means u ladyboyfans.

  • anonymous

    @JustinIsHot:

    Fool that’s for Friday only not the week end, that is what you Jen hags wish for his movie Money Ball to fail, instead it is going to be number one, eeking out Abduction, you and that old hag did not win, I went solely to see Brad Pitt. Not only that it is getting strong reviews for an Oscar, I can’t wait to see Brad and angie on the red carpet for the oscar’s.

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    Cr Moneyball Review.

    Stats and Balls

    The game of baseball is often portrayed as a romantic — even mythic — endeavor, evoking as many heroes, villains and struggles of honor and will as any epic tale. But beneath the simple elegance of a swing of the bat lies rows and columns of statistics and numbers. In the business of baseball, the numbers with dollar signs are the most important — and can mean the difference between winning and losing. “Moneyball” tells the true story of how numbers sparked a sea change in the way the game of baseball is played.

    Brad Pitt plays Billy Beane, General Manager of the struggling Oakland A’s. Ending another season without a championship, and gutted as their best players are lured away with promises of big paychecks, the A’s are a dying franchise. With an operating budget that’s minuscule compared to New York or Boston, Oakland can’t afford the big name players that mean wins and high ticket sales.

    A former player himself, Billy is frustrated by the inequality between rich and poor teams, and the way players are valued (or devalued) depending on intangibles like the “gut feelings” of scouts or the player’s photogenic qualities. Beane is determined to put together a decent squad with the limited resources given to him, but at a loss as to how. A chance encounter with an Ivy League statistics geek, Peter Brand (Jonah Hill), sparks an unlikely partnership. Peter theorizes that since wins are determined by runs, players should be chosen based on their ability to get base hits, regardless of their other abilities.

    With Peter in tow, Billy returns to Oakland armed with a pile of stats and a new way of building a team. As expected, their revolutionary idea does not sit well with the grizzled old-timers in the club house, nor with the team’s manager, Art Howe (Philip Seymour Hoffman), who has no say in the matter, and no choice but to make do with the odd-ball collection of players. The players Billy and Peter see as undervalued — older players past their prime, the injured, the inelegant, the occasional troublemakers — the rest of the organization (and their fans) see as the wretched refuse of major league baseball, more rag-tag than the Bad News Bears.

    As Billy tries to get the old guard on board with their new way of business, he also instructs young Peter in the back room dealings of baseball, everything from trades to how to tell a player he’s being let go. The chemistry between Pitt and Hill practically crackles the screen. Pitt, all glib confidence and bravado, vs. Hill’s meek, deer-in-the-headlights look of a young man thrown in way over his head. Pitt appears to be aging gracefully from hunky star to handsome character actor, with a tanned face like a well-worn catcher’s mitt and a mischievous twinkle in his eyes. Hill, free of raunch and wacky shenanigans, displays an intelligence and subtlety to his humor that shows a growing maturity and skill that compliments Pitt’s performance perfectly.

    Both actors have a field day with the witty, winning dialogue crafted by All Star writers Steven Zaillian and Aaron Sorkin. Sorkin, whose script for “The Social Network” made the founding of Facebook play like a Shakespearian tragedy, here helps elevate a story about the numbers and business of baseball to a David and Goliath story about the conviction of one man against an unjust system. And within that epic scope, there are the smaller stories of players shunted from ball club to ball club, just looking to play the game they love for as long as they can. Real-life characters like catcher-turned-first baseman Scott Hatteberg (Chris Pratt from “Parks and Recreation”) and veteran David Justice (Stephen Bishop) put faces to the names next to the rows of numbers and stats.

    Director Bennett Miller (”Capote”) echoes the grandeur of the script by keeping the film as tightly edited and as constantly in motion as a suspense thriller. It’s no small feat to keep an audience engaged through a two-hour film about baseball statistics. Ironically, “Moneyball” is probably more entertaining, enjoyable — and certainly faster-moving — than any major league baseball game. A home run, if you ask me.

  • ladyboy iz his name

    @TABLIOD: agreed. If they had put lindsay in the role of billy beans the movie would have made like twice as much as the one starring ladyboy. LoL

  • Another Fan

    Agree with tweet from last thread, Moneyball is even better watching the second time! The movie should have legs!

  • TABLIOD

    @JEN IN REHAB: you should be worried about the 48 yr old fake daddy and box office failure has been.

    Brad thanks you for adding to MB’s success. That’s one of the major differences (other than intellect) that separates the JP’s fans and you hags, we will NEVER pay to see one of Ticky’s bombs. But again, thank you. LOL
