Terrific. Terrific.

Trivia: 1970s Farrah Fawcett was comprised of 63% cocaine and 37% Quaaludes, with a creamy caramel center. Oh baby.

OK, so let's assume she's 100% right. That 8 million dollars just came from female audiences. But now let's pretend we went back in time to this past weekend and somehow the SAME number of men also showed up to see the movie. Now that puts it at 16 million... which is still a catastrophic and fatal box office on the back of a movie that cost 50 million.

So wtf is she even talking about? She made a bad movie that nobody wanted to see. Not males, not females, not anybody.
I like your math.

Seems odd she should blame the Action-Movie Men for not coming out at all, when it seems like she should be blaming the Action-Movie Women for not coming out in a large mass.

After seeing the trailer on tv... the characters just feel annoying to me. Like superficial caricatures of women, or some kind of vibe like their aim is at 20-year-old college-age women who like to frequent clubs, but I doubt that demographic cares all that much for action movies.

That a trailer -- which is supposed to contain the good stuff to get attention and bring in an audience -- features character reactions about... a closet... yeah, seems kind of weak.

Ah, it's not out yet over here, comes out 29th November.

As much as I liked the trailer, maybe a IP like Charlie's Angels needs more cheese, like the Rock Baywatch movie, that was a big dumb fun movie with bright colors and action.

Elizabeth Banks before box office numbers come out: "This movie isn't for men." Elizabeth Banks after box office numbers come out: "Men are misogynistic pigs for not seeing this movie!"

Probably right. Or even go the other way and go with a more raucous, R-rated, "21 Jump Street" route but with Angels instead of undercover police. I'd watch that.

Sheesh, you're right. Got wires crossed in my brain. Guess it's been awhile since I saw either actress in a film...

Elizabeth Hurley is in a bikini on Yahoo almost every single day. And she still looks incredible.

She's figured out that she doesn't need to waste time and energy acting anymore when all she has to do is twirl around in a bathing suit. And God Bless Her for her amazing level of clarity, and her commitment to the cause. Not that she was a bad actress, but... given the choice, I'd definitely skip watching her act and jump right to the bikini sh*t. Pretty sure most people would agree.

See, some people just accept their purpose and own that sh*t. "I'm sexy, look at me!" No pretense, no shame. I respect the hell outta that.

Especially ones that are 50-something-going-on-30, like Elizabeth Hurley. Mrowrrrr.
