Disaster Movie is a Complete Disaster!

If you're anything like me, this weekends box office numbers were of extreme interest. Is it because Babylon, A.D. is going to be Vin Diesel's underrated masterpiece!? No, not even by a long shot. It's because Disaster Movie, the latest in the ____ Movie series, bombed! Finally! If you're not aware, this was written and directed by Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg, the pair of geniuses who brought us Date Movie, Epic Movie, and Meet the Spartans. Now the reason I'm joyously celebrating their latest movies epic disaster (get it? Oh, and 6.9 mil in its four day opening... ouch) is because the first three movies I mentioned opened at the top of the box office in each of their respective opening weekends. Thus Aaron and Jason were able to become rich and litter the box office with more pop culture trash.

So I'd like to thank you, movie-going public. For with your lack of interest (finally), we may see the beginning of the end for Mr. Seltzer and Mr. Friedberg (are they even real people? These sound like made up name's designed to keep some old hollywood execs safe from angry message boarders).
