Only in Hollywood - $48 million sucks

Apparently I was right the first time around: MI:3 disappoints at the box office, batshit crazy version of Tom Cruise held responsible. It could have been worse, it could have been better. $48 mil may be a disappointment but it isn't a total tank. There's also the DVD side of things to eventually factor into the take. But it isn't up to par, either (get it, par, Paramount...okay, nevermind). It definitely isn't going to help repair the damage Tom has done to his image/public persona. Tom Cruise the Movie Star has taken a direct hit. I don't know what he paid Pat Kingsley over the years, but she earned every damn penny. How she managed to muzzle and straight-jacket him for so long is beyond me. What it does means is that you can forget about seeing an MI:4. But damn, that theme music still rocks.
