I was at DCA this weekend. After seeing the 60 minute wait for Monsters, I went into the Muppets, which is right next door, to see how busy it was.
First, you walked right in. Second, the crowd awaited a little longer than normal and still did not fill half the theater.
It is not a bad show, it is just OLD! It is like eating left over spaghetti. You know it was once good, but right now it is nothing special.
When you have people falling over themselves to get into Monsters Inc, a RIDE, can Disney realize that 3D movies are dead? The Monsters ride is not that special, but it is new and it is a RIDE! Rides in Fantasyland are not new, but still are popular some 50 years later!
(I talked to a Canadian family later on. I asked them if they saw Tough to be a Bug, which I think is a better 3D movie than Muppets. They said they did, but did not like it. I guess even the best of the bunch is not going over with people.)
I just think it is time for Disney to throw in the towel and acknowledge that 3D movies are not popular and grow old on people much faster than ride do.
Do you agree?
