If TLK is supposed to be the movie by which all others are measured, then certainly Disney should have the best shot at making movies that meet such a lofty standard.
The fact that it hasn't and doesn't and can't IS the problem with the company and its hopefully former strategy of putting out profitable "singles and doubles." And that's why the steroid user known as PIXAR was purchased. (Yes, enough with the baseball analogy already!)
CL was a single, which, in baseball terms, is better than striking out. It will be forgotten in about three months. Maybe I'll see it when the price is right: included as part of my basic cable package, which gives me ABC Family Channel. Or, maybe I'll BORROW it from the relative who gets DVDs at a cast-member discount. (Usually, we buy from him at the discounted price.)
My kids were lukewarm to it. That tells me a lot. (Yeah, they're expert movie critics!)
Money isn't everything when it comes to determining the greatness of a movie. It's a slightly positive correlator of indicativeness, but the teen market skews the data pretty badly.
