All that Valkyrie neg-dissing you’re reading and hearing from online reporters and columnists (which I haven’t contributed to with any real gusto, being something of a mezzo-mezzo responder), is one reason why there’s some talk/expectation that Valkyrie will become a “surprise hit” over the next Xmas weekend. The new-release champs with the “just entertain us” crowd will be Adam Sandler‘s Bedtime Stories (which has big family appeal), Old Yeller/Marley and Me, and Valkyrie in third place, I’m told.
