Sparkle Fizzles Out at the Box Office...
This is a sad sentiment, but I think the problem here is that people are tired of giving singers who can't really act (Cee-lo, Whitney, Jordin) their hard earned dollars - even when it's Whitney Houston.
I hate to say it, but I didn't go to the theater either... but I will most certainly buy it on DVD just because I want to have it, so I didn't see the need to spend $30 to support when my $15 on the DVD will replinish their pockets.
I know it helps keep black flicks in the theaters to show up the first week, but I'm sick of theaters giving us rappers and singers who can't act in a musical, or rappers and singers who can't act in a comedy.
Some of us like drama, action, or suspense. Why not a black Jason Bourne of The Bourne Identity fame, type film?
Hopefully people will get ticked off by this and hit the theater this week.
