Wednesday Lagniappe

OK, so we all agree that our economy is in a recession, if not entering a depression.

How does that jive with Paul Blart: Mall Cop making $64,923,380 in only 2 weeks at the box office?

After Leo was born, we cut back on movie expenditures to only seeing blockbuster movies (Harry Potter movies, Watchmen, Star Trek, Public Enemies). Apparently, not everyone is hoarding money, though, and instead have no problem dropping the $17.00 (or more) per couple to see what looks like an average comedy.

As a former film critic, I remember the days when $100,000,000 in U.S. box office receipts was rarefied air.
