    Maybe it would have done better on PPV and had the word tits in the title.

    Like his movie was gonna do any business in New York, Boston, or DC anyway.

    I'm sure this is all part of Beck's marketing plan: get more people to the rural theaters by showing that because "liberal" strongholds like the aforementioned cities don't like it, it must be a right-wing darling of a film, appealing to "real" people. *rolls eyes*

    Well let's see.... 177 Republicans in the House plus 49 in the Senate, double that if spouses are to be dragged along but let's give the guy a break and assume all the spouses were at a Log Cabin fund raiser. Add 1 for Mary Matalin and 1 for Michael Steele. That's 228 tickets Beck should have sold in Washington, DC.

    I think Steele probably has a mouth enough for about 30 tickets.

    But I'm sure Senators like Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins wouldn't be caught dead at this film. They seem to do a pretty good job of having only slightly right-leaning bias.

    Even though, based on ticket sales, it seems most didn't go, I'm sure if they were asked, they would all have nothing but praise for the film.

    It actually flopped in the rural areas too. :biggrin1:
    To think, Gigli did better than this film nationwide.

    Christmas Sweater2 would've been a hit if Glenn Beck had some booty dancers and video hos in it.
