You do understand that that isn't at all what your article says, right? The "dogs" is referring to a different movie (the #1 movie that weekend, actually) and the article is very complimentary of Reilgulous' box office performance.
What's to understand? Compliments or no, Religulous was listed #10 as a weekend box office dog.

Five times budget means Religulous was a success, not a flop.

This is an example of a flop: An American Carol

www.avclub.com/articles/americahating-flagbur...

Budget $20m, 8 times Religulous.
Box office $7m, half of Religulous.

I haven't even seen Religulous.
With your sort composing lies just for me I really don't need to, do I?

It was released in limited theaters, still outperformed big money Hollywood movies even though religious bigots were threatening theaters that wanted to play it. It was very profitable and won at least 1 award. It is listed on the top 15 greatest American documentaries of all time and was the top earner in 2008. It received positive and above average reviews even though reviewers were pressured to bash it.

It exceeded Bill's expectations and still remains a strong seller in the DVD market.
By any measuring stick you want to use, it performed well.

No matter how you spin it, a class Z movie is a class Z movie. Hell, you didn't even know Religulous existed before I brought it up! LOL!

You continue to miss the point. The movie was listed as a flop, which makes it a flop. It must be hard not be a sucka in your little world of lollipop ideas.

Top 15 greatest American documentaries of all time, regardless of your personal opinion.

Ask your preacher for guidance this weekend as you are twirling and shouting in tongues to Jesus.

But you don't believe some god played a role in the formation of the universe right?

From your link (I persevered)

"Luckily, the American public (and this includes the 60 million Republican-leaning voters Zucker was aiming for) see through the charade of AN AMERICAN CAROL and are staying home. Or seeing RELIGULOUS."

Your link didn't even say Religulous was a flop!

So, no, by your standards, the bible is evil.

Obtuseness seems to be an atheist trait. Take it up with the website that listed Religulous as one of ten weekend box office dogs.

Religulous was great.

I saw it in the theater. The audience gave it a standing ovation.

I've watched it twice more on Netflix.

I have already proven you a lying cu*t.

Religulous' box office:$13.5m vs.$2.5m budget.
An American Carol's box office:$7m vs.$20m budget.

And your link agrees with me.
