    Re: Poor Performing Princess (and the Frog)

    I noticed the screening we were at yesterday was probably 75% full. That is better than what I have been hearing so far. I think Disney did damage themselves with some of their lesser films and especially the Cheapquals. I think PatF will do some steady business, and then very well on home video.

    Re: Poor Performing Princess (and the Frog)

    The upcoming awards season will continue to bump the film along, hopefully they'll end up on Oscar's list as well. Those should be some cute TV and print ads, especially rolling into Valentine's Day. Plus the film's merchandise looks to echo the previous princess' performance, dwarfing the box office numbers at retail worldwide into the billions. It was rushing in the right direction before the holidays:

    Disney's Newest Princess Is A Hit With Consumers; Outsells Other Disney Princess Merchandise By Double Digit Percentages As Holiday Shopping Season Begins


    GLENDALE, CA — November 18, 2009 — Weeks before the theatrical release of Disney's upcoming animated feature The Princess and the Frog, the excitement for film-inspired merchandise is already building in a big way as anticipation for the film intensifies. Since its launch just a few weeks ago, retailers report that the merchandise has already begun out-selling other Disney Princess items by double digit percentages. More than 45,000 dolls have sold in less than a month with 17,000 selling last week alone. At one major retailer, The Princess and the Frog bedding has sold nearly triple the amount of regular Disney Princess bedding. At Disney Store locations nationwide and DisneyStore.com, the Princess Tiana role-play dresses are selling above all other Disney Princess characters.

    Yes ... yes he did.

    But in my defense, you have to do certain things when you have an 11 y/o son.

    I won't be giving him any the next time around.

    Hopefully then the next chapter won't end up being the best of the 3.

    And there is obviously no need for the defense of enjoying or supporting entertainment. Otherwise there'd be no more 'Saw' movies.
