Capitalist Pig Michael Moore Fails To Gorge Himself At Box Office Trough

From Big Hollywood:

Michael Moore’s CAPITALISM tanks!

Ricky Gervais has launched his second consecutive box office bomb as The Invention of Lying (Warner Bros) only mustered $2.2M or so to start the 3-day. The comedy should finish #5 with approximately $6.5M for the weekend. …

[B]ut the biggest disappointment of the weekend is Michael Moore’s Capitalism: A Love Story (Overture). After a $57K per theatre average on 4 screens last weekend, the picture broke to a wider 962 locations with terrible results. The “documentary” only sold an estimated $1.3M in tickets to start the weekend, and it will finish at about $3.9M for a PTA of less than $4,000. That soft opening will almost certainly make Capitalism Moore’s weakest-grossing movie since 2002’s Bowling for Columbine($21.5M domestic gross).

Is anyone really surprised? It is pretty damn hard to get past the irony of someone telling you Capitalism is evil while at the same time getting stinking rich in the process. When it comes to bashing capitalism, Michael Moore has a credibility factor of zero. If Moore wanted to be credible on the subject, he really should have release the movie for free on YouTube. Anything short of that reeks of hypocrisy.

I am SO glad, SO glad captitalism is failing Michael Moore this time. The man is detestible making money by twisting facts and skewing events to support his viewpoint. Ugh. He needs to have an EPIC FAIL!!!

I agree with Janie. Talk about a two-faced pig (and I'm not referring to the number of chins he has, either).

I think your title might need some refining.
"Pig Michael Moore Fails To Gorge Himself At Box Office Trough "
there we go.

I wonder, in his little flick did he point out that to become a sucessful capitalist, you must produce somthing people find of value?

Oh Clifton, I gonna cuff your ears if that stupid flop ends up on YouTube!
I'm 110% positive M&M would never have come up with that idea on his own.

This really IS GREAT news!

No one with any sense should pay to see a Moore flick. The guy's a misinformed misanthrope, who reviles PEOPLE far more than he does "Capitalism."

All such self-proclaimed "anti-Capitalists" are really anti-freedom, they oppose the most basic form of freedom - individual LIBERTY, property rights or ECONOMIC FREEDOM.

This guy's not just an idiot (he IS that), but a vile, disgusting slob. I wish him many more such bombs.

Mikey Moore sitting with an Ex-President at the traitor-democrat-party-of-filth Convention will be recorded as an important symbolic event by future historians.

Read my friend's K9's blog to get a neat perspective on being a black Christian Conservative!

I read in the Drudge Report today that Moore's documentary (farce is more like it) pulled in $5.5 million instead of $6.5 million. Doesn't matter though for either way, by movie standards, his film is a bomb.

great post! i am pleased to read moore's film is a flop. and like jmk said, i wish him many more.

someone should do a documentary on the retards that actually bought tickets to see this hypocritical garbage. i wouldn't mind seeing THAT on pbs with some popcorn.

I'm sure it will still be shown in college biology and English classes. They love him in academe.

I used to have a boss who was from Belgium. He would crucify America at every chance he got. One day, he was in vilifying me, George Bush, the American lifestyle, and then he finally ended his screed and said, "I guess I'll go check my 401K now."

Fortunately, I think he's back wallowing in the mud with the rest of them back in Belgium.

I didn't pay money to see that movie. I saw it on my tv because Starz is playing it. I have a guilty pleasure of trying to see what the enemy is saying. I could not believe all of the half truths and blatant lies of the opinionated excrement spewing pig. The man actually looks like he would smell bad. The real question is that if he thinks Capitalism is so bad, then what economic structure would he propose? Everyone being communist? That sure worked out didn't it? What an idiot. He's full of bashing the American Dream, but he suggest no solution to the matter. Roger Moore is way less than a dripping of human waste.
