According to movie executives, it’s not the fact that the movies suck that’s causing people to stop watching them. It’s those damned kids and their cell phones.
See, since all these kids have cell phones this year (which, apparently, they didn’t have last year), they’re sitting in the theater calling their friends on the outside and warning them away from the crapfest. Why all their friends are standing outside the theater while they suffer through The Hulk is not explained. Perhaps it’s some sort of gang initiation.
“Timmy, in order to hang with us, dude, you gotta sit through Charlie’s Angels. And we mean all of it! No skipping out half-way. Here! Take this cell phone and do an Ebert for us. We can’t read.”
Yeah. That’s the ticket. So to speak…
