Weekend Box Office Preview
"Amazing Grace" looks terribly noble -- I really like Ioan Gruffudd but just couldn't bring myself to attend a screening. And whatever anyone predicts for Jim Carrey's "The Number 23" at the box office, I predict it will be lower. BOP says it might hit $19 mil, but this movie just looks silly, people laughed at the trailer when I was seeing another film and the reviews are so bad I just have to assume word of mouth will be poisonous. Sadly, Carrey's most recent dram -- "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind" -- was probably the best of his career, so he loses momentum as a serious actor. But no one should think he's not capable of it.
