20th Century Fox has decided against sneaking The Family Stone the weekend after next (i.e., the one before its 12.16 opening), and that means they’ve basically decided that as good as it is, they don’t believe that the film will sell itself to the ticket-buying public out there and their only chance at spiking the interest levels is to try and land some Golden Globe acting nominations for costars Diane Keaton and Sarah Jessica Parker. If I were the Fox guy in charge of selling this film, I would definitely sneak it…but that’s because I really like it and can’t imagine anyone not feeling the same way. Is it unfair to say that Fox marketing’s attitude towards The Family Stone seems a little bit cooler than mine?
