The news on The Bridesmaids box office week two is that it only dropped 20%. Think about that. According to box office mojo that 20% decline was less than recent comedies like The 40 Year Old Virgin and The Hangover. Bridesmaids grossed $20 million dollars on weekend two and the powers that be didn’t predict that it would make even $20 million on weekend one. That means that not only is it a hit, it is a hit compared to the male comedies. The box office stands now at almost $60 million.

So suck it women haters. Now we just need you people to make some more films with goddam funny women. We have proved we will show up in droves. Doesn’t need to be based on a TV show like Sex and the City. Women will come if the film is good and we are not pandered to.
