It Will Be Expelled from Theaters in About a Week
In my searchings, I didn’t find any positive reviews that weren’t associated with religious or right-wing political publications — and then only two of those.
He then presents excerpts from a dozen reviews, every single one of which savages the film brutally.
The movie will do good box office this weekend, because the producers have done a good job promoting it to the folks whose logical reasoning capabilities are about as sophisticated as Wild Thing’s.
But after the first week, word of mouth from the few people who wandered into this film by mistake will kill this turkey dead.
In emails I’ve received from the promoters, they talked about how they wanted to get this film onto the list of top ten opening weekends for documentaries. I’ve lost that link, but aside from a very few high profile films (e.g., Fahrenheit 9/11), most documentaries have small opening-weekend box office. The main reason for this is that documentaries don’t start in too many theaters. Supposedly Expelled will be in 1000 theaters. They’ll be able to make their goal. The real question is how many theaters will it be in next week? Very few, I’m sure.
