It’s time to admit something and be done with it. I’ve been a big fan of My Date With Drew since I saw it in April ’04, and I’ve written two or three column pieces about it, and it finally opened on August 5th after a long wait and…it tanked. Box Office Guru’s last posting as of 8.14 had total earnings at $181,041. It took in $85,000 on the opening weekend in 85 theatres. People didn’t care. A good thing was ignored, waved away, dismissed…and that’s what happened. Too bad, but I guess those distributors who said people wouldn’t pay to see it because it’s too much like TV were right. I saw it with a festival crowd and they went apeshit and it got a 68% on Rotten Tomatoes, but ticket-buyers were another story.
