I don't think that reasoning is gonna fly this time. If it opens low like tracking suggests, it ain't gonna make it.

It'll have 4 weeks of no competition until New Year's Eve comes out. That plus the fact the last comedy to do decent numbers was 50/50 and Tower Heist disappointed. The market is ripe for a Sandler comedy and it should hit 100m.

It doesn't look as kid-friendly as Bedtime Stories, but it looks as kid-friendly as, say, Marely & Me. But then again, the fact that Marley & Me wasn't really all that kid-friendly didn't hurt it. But that was based off of a popular book and had the whole dog story line. I don't get why the studio wouldn't just settle for the PG-13.

I would definitely say Marley and Me looked more appropriate for kids, like there wasn't anything that looked like you shouldn't take your kids to that. Marley & Me just had a more adult-oriented, and more human, storyline that you typically don't see in kid-friendly pics.

It definitely has competition in the coming weeks. It's a family film actually, or claiming to be, or not, considering the marketing looks like it can't decide who to market to, and there are plenty of family films coming out in the coming weeks that will hurt its chances. Edited by Jay Beezy

It's a family film? I thought it was rated PG-13? I take that all back then.

It's definitely PG. Whether it's actually appropriate for families despite its rating is another matter entirely.

I think it looks hysterical. And I'm not joking either.

Well, tracking doesn't seem to agree with your opinion.

We didn't get futures this week because RS was late. Have to wait until next week.

Doubt BD1 will get that high. Does this really have anywhere near the hype of New Moon.

I see 135-140m.
