Dinesh D’Souza’s D’Blockbuster D’Blues
Future explainer of colonialism in cell block C, Dinesh D’Souza, had a movie come out this weekend.
So how did it do?
Not bad. Not bad.
How did Transformers: Robots and Stuff Blowing Up do?
Dinesh only missed the top spot by…[gets out calculator] … slightly less than $100 million dollars.
So, more like this:
Sorry Raw Story, this silliness has to be called out. Now granted, there are a lot of reasons to mock this movie—IndieWire has a great list—but let’s be fair here. D’Souza’s flick played in three theaters. Transformers opened up in 4,200. The jailbound political commentator’s film doesn’t go into wide release until July 2, and in those three theaters it played in, it had a per-screen average of $12,869. (It also had a higher opening weekend than his last film, though that opened in just one theater.)
I’ll be the first to admit that D’Souza’s flick will probably have more logical fallacies in the first 30 seconds than this post has. And Michael Bay’s Transformers is still probably the better film, even though it’s total dreck. But this is still a logical fallacy.
Now can we get back to making fun of Rex Reed?
