But that's my point - going to see a movie because of who's in it - even though it's a remake of a stinker with no plot. Or the other worthless endeavor: sports stats - effort spent on memorizing pointless nothing by people who won't put the effort into knowing what's happening in the world around them . . . but, in the bathroom, they can discuss 'their' team and argue how many pro's can dance on the head of which pins. But - and this is the big but (butt): they are 'in' with the crowd because they know the proper passwords.

Think of the stupidity of how they note how much money a film's making on some weekend. Then, of course, they point out that it's being overtaken by another films box-office. Never mind having enough brains to consider that it's been out, everyone's seen it, so it's going to lose box-office.

That being said - you're quite right. It just outrages me that those who produce nothing (remember, the writer wrote the story!) get paid so much and produce nothing.

The lemmings will spill into the sea. Their hopes buoyed by their lightened wallets.
