Now if you want a movie to have mass appeal you just do NOT include a political message that you know will offend half the country! This should be filmmaking 101.
I've heard nothing of the sort about STID and I know a slew of liberals, although we've all
seen TDK and it's arguable there was a pro-Bush message in there. So that argument is moot.

That movie's a comedy and it's R. Different audiences. 20-30 somethings might see it, but I can't see them capturing the teens or the older adults.
And a comedy with those schlubs (well ok, maybe not James Franco) vs HENRY CAVILL?!??!
Those girlfriends are insane.
