Went to a screening on Saturday night, and after deciding that we just could not lose any more of our lives watching this movie...so we snuck out! Now my date insists I owe him a car or something, what a mess! We couldn't even demand a refund because it was a complimentary screening - waaahhh!
BTW I asked one of the WB publicists if they went with this Jen -I'm-still- your-TV-Friend-Rachel photo on the one-sheet to try to lure her People Magazine crowd to it. She said that it was a very conscious effort to use her other image, as opposed to an in-character image, to try to promote the film.
I told her that I still believe that many of the people who claim to love her just don't necessarily spend money to see her, thus the long list of unsuccessful films. Exception to the rule is of course the Meg Ryan formula - stand near the real draw for a particular film, and ride the huge box office winner - Tom Hanks (Sleepless In Seattle, You've Got Mail) or Jim Carrey (Bruce Almighty) or Ben Stiller (Along Came Polly).
