BWAAAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

I knew it JJ didn’t have the balls to call out Aniston on her bomb film. I guess Huvane pays really, really well! Yet, the last 2 weeks your site has been landblasted with Aniston and her paid BF articles, yet you make no mention of their flop! Boy, boy, boy how the mighty has fallen.

Yay for Act of Valor! I didn’t see it, but I went to see Deeds with some girlfriends. Will try to see Valor this week.

a nice #8
Aniston, please spare us with your boring borfest films.
I guess not many rushed to see you expose yourself naked & free as you pointed out.
nice PR..cheap nudey PR
LMAO
and still as FLOP

# 8

I guess the whole PR promotion of giving Jen a Hollywood star didn’t help her movie 5.8M I wonder if they regret giving it to her now.

As someone above said she better on TV she can’t carry a movie but a TV show she can, but sadly I think she thinks she too good for TV now like she above it or somthing.

# 9

She can’t even carry a tv show unless it is an ensembled. that is just a lie sold to the public. To me she was the least memorable as far as acting not the gossip mill amongst all the Friends cast

LMAO..JJ not mentioning the box office rundown.
what a jip to the fans.

I don’t know why I give this place a hit. Maybe to see pics of Brad Pitt.

JJ what’s up.. this was the heading of the Box office on Sun. Sept.25th

‘Lion King’ Bests ‘Moneyball’ at Box Office

Now why don’t we see that kind of heading when it is Aniston.. Why is it not. EVERY OTHER MOVIE BEATS WANDERLUST AT THE BOX OFFICE.

Such the double standard.. and peoples say that there is not a different take when it is Brad or Angie..

Sorry Jared that sucks big time.

US Weekly had the gumption to not kow tow up to Huvane.
It called it a BOMB.

Act of Valor is hardly a movie.
It’s Department of Defense propaganda (started out as a NAVy recruiting film, then switched to full blown bad film). It filmed with taxpayer money.
The saddest thing is they used activity duty military personnel as the leads in this film and they do not get a film credit NOR are they or will they be paid any money for the film. As the child of a Lifetime Navy vet dad that angers me, they did the work and they neither get the credit nor get paid for it.
BOO!

Poor Jen, cannot even hold up to movies running on their 3rd week! She’s not a bad actress, but I guess people are just really sick of her doing the same thing over and over and over again. Can she not do anything else besides a romantic comedy?

Jen & Pauls movies will make money..always has..

@ellie’:
it needs 60mil just to break even..not gonna happen

Interesting how Jen’s fans claim to love her but do not actually go see her films. Proves that she’s not a respected actress, but merely a tabloid fixture and “celebrity”.

@ellie’:

How is it going to make money? Oping weekend is the most amount of money a movies going to make and it’s only going to makes less from then on so how is it suposed to make money.

Jennifer Aniston is a good actress but she chooses terrible movies. How much bombs is she going to put out before the stuidios realize she doesnt have IT.

@nomore I honestly think it’s because Jen is more of a star than actress, if that makes sense? Her divorce is talked about more than her actual films. But since she has had a movie open at #1 since ’09 does this mean she’s a TV star?

devil's advocate @ 02/27/2012 at 8:30 am

Everyone in my trailer park is still confident that Wanderlust will
earn over $100 million and that Jennifer will win an Oscar for
best actress for her role in it.
