WHO is making this happen??


I just heard on the news that "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" is the number one movie in America for the second week in a row. I have several questions:
1) Who the HECK is going to see this movie?? (For the record, if you did see it and we're friends, consider our relationship terminated, effective immediately.)
2) Who the heck gave millions of dollars for this movie to be made?? Who greenlighted this project? I would have guffawed in the face of ANYONE who pitched this movie idea to me.
3) HOW is it the number one movie? It's not a chick flick, it's not action, it's about a wussy dog. I can't believe this. Obviously I'm upset because I felt the need to write about it.

Were the Taco Bell commercials from the late 90's not annoying enough for everyone? Was it really necessary that they made a movie? Sheesh. I clearly do not have the foresight that some movie exec in Hollywood does because if I was a bigwig in movies I would never have allowed my studio to touch this. Someone must have thought this movie would make money, and I for one, am deeply saddened that that would be a predictable quality in any American. Okay, tirade over. I was just shocked that a movie like this could beat out a "Body of Lies" or other movies in the commencing award season film releases.
