It was a awful movie
I'm not laughing, Tony. I'm questioning your sanity, that's all. Wink

Was it really not half-bad? I haven't seen any of them.
No one laugh... but I saw it... and liked it.
Direct to market movies are the wave of the future.  DVD sales continue to go up, and theatrical profits continue to go down (not counting massive blockbuster profits).

Sadley, with the good direct movie releses we will get one day, we will get the direct to DVD Sequals to continue to ride the coat-tails of it's original flick.  

All that said, my daughters also want to buy this (we have the first two as well.)  Yes, I know, I am contributing to the problem, but they like them... oh well.
I don't think that it is really a sign of slippage.  There have always been B-type cheapies in Hollywood.  Use to they were paired off as double features at drive-ins and such and now they are just released straight to the home theater.  Most are "can't miss" as they are cheap to produce and make their budget back in the first week of release.

Does the 750,000 units include ones sold to places like Blockbuster, Netflix, etc?
The fact that so many DTV movies are made these days is surely a sign that standards are slipping in Hollywood but more concerning is the fact that they sell in such huge numbers.  If there wasn't a demand, they would stop getting made pretty quickly so here's another question...

Do the general public (not necessarily visitors to this site, just Joe Public with a DVD player) actually want anything new or do they want the same old c**p recycled again and again?
This is one of those movies my wife wants to see and it's continually out at Netflix.  Sad, but true.

Bring It On: All or Nothing...
Don't think it's worth adding this as a news item, but just read a press release that in its first week this direct to video title sold 750,000 copies making $12 million. It's the second most popular direct to video release next to Band Camp, which sold 1,000,000 in the first week.

Any comments? Personally I think the sales figure probably drops after the first week when word of mouth kicks in.
