Which is better: J. Edgar, Immortals, or Jack and Jill?

“J. Edgar”, with an Oscar winner writing the screenplay, an Oscar winner directing (Clint Eastwood), and an Oscar winner (Judi Dench) and nominees (Leonardo DiCaprio, Naomi Watts) in the cast, has to be good, right? Check out the review HERE.

Well, the critics aren’t very impressed. If you go to the movies this weekend, the following nationwide, big-budget films are all doing significantly better (critically) than “J. Edgar”:

In order from best rated:

PUSS IN BOOTS (uh huh …)

A VERY HAROLD AND KUMAR CHRISTMAS 3D

FOOTLOOSE

TOWER HEIST

PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 3

REAL STEEL

THE RUM DIARY

IMMORTALS

… yes, “J. Edgar” is seen by critics as worse than all of these. What a crazy way to start the Oscar-heavy fall and winter award movie season!

At least it’s dominating Adam Sandler’s “Jack and Jill” right? The first four films in the Adam Sandler-Dennis Dugan (director) partnership opened to more than $30 million each, and made more than $100 million. Let’s hope “Jack and Jill” breaks that impressive trend.

As of writing, “Jack and Jill” had a rare 0% on Rottentomatoes. Yes, that means not a single person found it worthy of a good review. This picture just begs for an Oscar though, right? No? Maybe Katie Holmes will win Best Actress for it? I just hope Al Pacino doesn’t suddenly die and this becomes his last film.
