Glenn Reynolds got me all excited for nothing:
ANOTHER HOLLYWOOD SUICIDE BOMB: Wagner James Au emails: Not sure anyone’s pointed this out yet, but *Redacted* was a giant bomb, I mean just disastrous in relation to profile, ranking *50th* place in last weekend’s box office receipts.
Here I thought I was finally going to go see a movie, but “Redacted,” it turns out, is not what I thought it was. No, it’s another pro-surrender movie and it’s tanking. That’s fine, but I was hoping — from the title, you know? — that it was a movie about document production in a big law firm, as I wrote about in my never-written book, Boiling the Ocean (pdf). I was even going to go out and buy a new REDACTED stamp and everything — just to relive old times.
I can’t understand why no one makes movies like that!
