How the f*ck did "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" make $30M in its first 3 days of release?

People are stupid. End of story.
There was a major lack of "family films" out there so far this fall.
Walt Disney and their marketing machine!
People love cute dogs.
Two words: Drew Barrymore
People love animal movies.
I have no f*ckin' idea why this film became so successful, but I do know that this does not bode well for the film industry's future. Sigh.

JohnLocke2342, you're the person bashing a movie YOU HAVEN'T EVEN SEEN so why call us stupid when we have actually seen it?! You're making judgements on the commercials that have scenes that probably isn't in the effing film. Oh, here's a thought: Maybe you shouldn't do that to make yourself look like an ignorant prick!

Funny Stuff!

Well calling people stupid rather rude. I will agree to that, but majority rules over everything, and well the votes so far have been counted and well, "Stupid People" seems to the correct answer. End of Story!

Come on guys

I think calling people stupid for seein this is downright rude. I don't give a flying fuck about the film but I'm not going to call someone stupid who does.

sizzle

I'm being sort of hypocritical, because every time a new Scary Movie (excluding the first two of course) or a similar parody-type is released and kills at the b.o., I call all those people STUPID too.

I love you's guys, but ya ain't as pretty as a couple'a titties.

They aren't dogs, they're rats to be stepped on.

A complete utter waste of everything. For god's sake don't buy any these rats either. They are irritating as hell & mean little bastards too. Try getting a real dog & thanks a lot kids for seeing this piece of sh*t film. These kinds of movies give kids movies a bad name. Just because it's for kids doesn't mean you don't have to try. Screw this crap, and to all involved in this, shame on you.

wow back

Intelligent and original entertainment? Ohh right right right; like movies based on comic books, graphic novels, and videogames. Got it.

As for JohnLocke; you, like most people, haven't seen the film, only the trailer (the singing sequence from the trailer isn't in the movie either) and you're judging the book by its cover... the movie isn't mindless. It's rare Disney produces ANYTHING mindless. The moral of their stories are always positive. BHC examines some of the Mexican heritage

It's rare Disney produces ANYTHING mindless. The moral of their stories are always positive. BHC examines some of the Mexican heritage and culture, which I'm positive most children aren't privy to, and with current events, is an important aspect for children to learn. They also reference the ridiculousness of dressing up a lap dog like a Barbi doll. My only criticism is it might be a bit too cliche and stereotypical, but it's Disney. That's the way they've been since the beginning. Because if you're ever lived in California, the stereotypes are usually true. Especially when you have Cheech Marin, Luis Guzman, and George Lopez in the cast.

Kung Fu Panda? Is that the [link] version of Beverly Hills Ninja?

I usually agree with JoBlo about movies, but it's no surprise this movie made the money it did. I'm surprised that YOU'RE surprised.. It's well-produced; the characters, the dialogue, the arcs, the tone, the emotion, etc. Do you have any idea how hard it is to direct animals? And the CGI guys did a pretty brilliant job with their speaking. It doesn't deserve the bashing. It made the money it did because it's a cute movie and the other choices were shit. We'd be having a similar conversation had American Carol taken the box office. What were families supposed to go see? Blindness? Appaloosa?

We're debating a children's movie on a site that has it's own side-site dedicated to Boobies. REAL substance.

I'm only defending the people you call STUPID.

One love.

What can I say. This does not bode well for us R-rated action move fans and neither does this bode well for us who crave fro intelligent and original entertainment.

Wow

You guys need to chill the fuck out. People have their own opinions, and you know what? A lot of people think this is a mindless made for cash movie. It's written all over the screen. With the overplayed shitty song in the trailer, the adorable dogs that sing, and the beverley hills setting.

You don't see JOBLO trashing children's movies. You see him trashing shitty children's movies that have no substance, depth, or even attempt to be something different and cute.. no.. it pretty much

This site equally trashes action/horror movies that do the exact same thing.. you see, you're failing to see the point here. It's not about JoBlo trashing a children's movie. It's him trashing a completely unoriginal piece of shit that was churned out of the Hollywood cash cow. He did the same thing with the crappy horror remakes, and the same thing with the shameless fast and the furious sequels. He praised wall-e, kung fu panda and most disney cartoons. Because they were clever, and tried to do something creative and different. It has nothing to do with this movie being a kids movie. At all.

c'mon now...

I grew up with movies like these; Beethoven, Homeward Bound, etc. MOST normal children with decent human beings for parents enjoyed these movies. Slandering children and good parents by calling them stupid sounds like a bitter judgement from someone who wasn't loved as a child. And remember this... "if you can't say something nice, then don't say nothing at all."
Can't we just keep this a website devoted to male- chauvinistic ideals? We shouldn't even be talking about Beverly Hills

Did I see a trailer for Madagascar posted on this site? Holy Hell. And is anybody else extremely annoyed by the advertisements all over this site? How many times do I have to watch the Sex Drive trailer? Now, you want to talk about a bad movie, let's talk about a movie JoBlo is advertising the shit out of.

Right, But

Kids like to go to the theater too. It's not fair to keep them from the theater because you're a snob. I saw shit like this when I was a kid, but I know now that it's shit and I love movies like "Taxi Driver". Sure, show them good movies, but don't stop them from seeing these movies because you're worried their taste won't be as refined as yours. It's stupid to care more about your kid having good taste than being happy. And if going to the theater makes them happy, then why stop them.

Understanding

Yes, kids will want to see it. (Obviously) Yes, we all got our jollies out of The Dark Knight. (a great film) And I don't believe parents would be asinine to say "no". If anything, if you're a film buff, keep your kids home and show them a film catered to their age group that's actually good, not something Disney is trying to rot their brains with. It is good that there are movies that come out that kids can get behind, but some play down to them instead of talking up to them. This seems to be

It is good that there are movies that come out that kids can get behind, but some play down to them instead of talking up to them. This seems to be one of those. However, my kids love movies like this and I am not gonna prevent them from ever viewing this film should they want to...and they will. I've sat through many I didn't want to just for their pleasure and it made it all worth while because I love my kids. I sat through many just like it as a kid. We all did. After adding to defend myself, I just don't care anymore. Go see or don't. I know I'm not gonna lose sleep over this.

People are not dumb. Judging by these ratings, people are ignorant. You see, in RT, this film is just a 44%, which isn't nearly as bad as people are bashing it now. It's a KIDS MOVIE for KIDS. Oh, gee, I have a thought! Maybe the demographics were for KIDS! I'm sadden by this country. People judge things when they have never seen it.

Not every movie...

Not every movie that hits theaters was made to appeal to the JoBlo faithful.

My 6 year old daughter likes to see movies too. She doesn't wet her pants over The Dark Knight or whatever big movie is being hyped every other week, so I'm happy for her that every once in awhile, a movie comes out that she's interested in.

A lot of snobbery around here. Not that I'm surprised, it being the internet and all.

Reason

I have two little sisters, so I understand it. Yes it's stupid, but it's better than "Disaster Movie" getting #1. Kids are going to want to see movies with talking animals. And parents would be asinine to say "no" just because the movie looks bad (this coming from a film snob). But, I bet you a crapload of money that "Bolt" will make way more money, because it will have kids dragging parents and parents dragging kids. All kids movies are going to do ok. I'm really not that upset.
