This Just In: Another Katherine Heigl movie bombs at the box office

Oh Goddess Schadenfreude, thank thee for thy bountiful gifts.

I saw no advertising for this movie and didn't know it was even coming out.

by Anonymousreply 104/27/2013

Even the target audience for these types of movies are bored with them. I don't know who wants to watch this crap. Heigl is not a star and is unappealing, when will they figure that out?

by Anonymousreply 204/27/2013

You know, OP, you really are a moron.

It's not a "Katherine Heigl movie" at all. She's not one of the principals; it's more a DeNiro movie, which if you read your own link you'd know.

Hate much?

"Writer/director Justin Zackham received awful reviews despite Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton, Amanda Seyfried, Topher Grace, Susan Sarandon, and Robin Williams. Note that I’m leaving out Katherine Heigl on purpose. And yet it took 5 producers for this family fiasco (Clay Pecorin, Harry J. Ufland, Justin Zackham, Richard Salvatore, Anthony Katagas)."

I think the only reason I can't stand her, is her first (only?) hit was about getting pregnant and insisting on having the baby, even thought her nor the guy really wanted it. No, I didn't actually watch the film, I heard about it.

I can't recall seeing a single ad for "Big Wedding". No wonder it bombed. As much TV watching and internet browsing as I do, if I had no awareness of it, then it had a really shit marketing campaign.

There were TV commercials that only mentioned Robert DeNiro and Diane Keaton. Heigel has reached J-Lo territory. Remember the J-Lo film where the TV ads barely showed her presence in the movie? Heigel is now also viewed as a liability instead of an asset.

So because of this thread, I hopped in my car and went to the last showing of the night at the ArcLight in La Jolla. I really liked it. It was hard to follow because there are so many characters and you're trying to figure out how they're related but that's the fun of it. Everyone's pretty good and it's just a fun diversion. I went into the movie a little stressed and came out very relaxed. Also, Kyle Bornheimer has a small role and I just think he is adorable. Totally my type. Also, Susan Sarandon looks amazing. Thanks Datalounge!

Too late, R25 - she's already happened. KH is one of the highest paid actresses of the current crop and yes, R13 she does have upcoming pics including Henson's Happyland Murders where she is the star human a la Jason Segal in Muppets. Insiders report that is tracking huge- meaning big BO is anticipated.

Katie picks and chooses her project's b/c she doesn't getoff on the fame game and she doesn't need the $ at this point. She has nothing lleft to prove b/c she's already successful -TV, comedy, drama, action- you name it.

Two of the movies she did her *mom* was the producer and yes she did do the Big Wedding as a *favor* to the director Justin Z b/c their friends. Please don't be so ignorant. I respect the way Katie stands w/ her people: Her mom, Justin Z, TR, etc.

For the record as well (might as well set this straight), Shonda has nothing bad to say about Katie and insiders report the only reason Katie has not been back on Greys is that they are saving her as a "secret weapon" in case ratings start to drop. Makes sense right? Duh! But nothing make's sense to haters who are *jealous* of a beautiful successful very well loved person like Kate Heigl. Thing is, if you met her (I have) you would never say a bad word about her again - sweetest girl.

by Anonymousreply 2604/29/2013

R26 must either be Heigl's mother, agent, publicist or 'Katie' herself. Nobody and I mean NOBODY thinks this girl has any future in movies. All her films have bombed over the past few years. She happened. She was the IT girl for a very short period of time, made a bunch of stupid rom coms, most of them flopped horribly and now she's over.

If she's lucky, she'll find herself a sitcom or some procedural on TV.

R23, Wow if you thought this was hard to follow you're a real moron. I saw it, mostly to hate-watch Heigl and was surprised that it had more laughs than I expected.

The movie is slight though, and Heigl plays a nasty character that makes it easier than usual to dislike her.

Ebersole is one of the brighter spots of the film. Anyone not knowing who she is is beyond me. Two-time Tony winner? Her indelible performance in Grey Gardens?? Her yearly Christmas concerts at Birdland? Time to rejoin the human race!

When you've been in the game as long as she has, R27, you don't freak the ups n downs. Child Model, Big screen debut at 14, Emmy winner, $10 million plus- per pic asking price for a few films in a row. Don't cry for Katie - she is crazy all right - like a fox. Artists who want to stay relevant know all about playing with our expectations and I suspect Katie is a sort of master at this. Nobody's here talking today about any of the other Grey's cast members, are we?

You and your brethen have been on here since 5 minutes after this flick bowed on Friday trying to blame it on one of the actresses who has barely more than a cameo and by all accounts was a great addition to the film. Really? Get over it. I know you jokingly signed "Shonda" but I am unfortunately starting to suspect that you are either her or I. Washington. Because lets face the ugly untold story in Kate's supposed downfall: black H-Wood hates gay H-Wood and the group's stick together. Katie dared to speak up for TR against IW and the next thing you know Shonda start's badmouthing her to who else - Oprah. Meanwhile Kate rises above. Get over it. For real.

This was shot in Connecticut in the summer of 2011. I worked on the crew. Keaton was adorable and gave wonderful, thoughtful wrap presents for the entire cast and crew. Heigl was a complete and utter cunt. She tried to get her stand-in fired because she was prettier than Heigl. We made fun of her behind her back. A perfect case of a mediocre actress thinking she was hot shit. She's burning bridges right and left.

Trust me, you are a bridge she can afford to burn. Keaton's very well off and probably wrote it off on her taxes as charity.

Take Me Home Tonight was 2011, R50 - hardly "several years ago." That flick was very high profile. Of note: TG was also a writer on that flick. Also did "The Double" vis a vis R. Gere.

TG is known to pick and choose his projects for reason's not usually involving commercial viability. Nonetheless he's done *quite* well for himself. He's from east coast old money so the paycheck isn't a big deal for him - more about the process and the craft if you will.

As for bit parts you really have no idea what you are referring to - as I mentioned, it is believed she did this role as a lark to help out a buddy - she'll have toplines coming out later this year and next.

Topher Grace is hated because he pulled a Shelley Long and quit his show to try to be a movie star. That didn't work out too well since from the time he quit to the end of That 70's Show, he was not in one single movie. All his movies were during That 70's Show or after the show went off the air. So he pulled his diva stunt for nothing.

by Anonymousreply 6604/30/2013

Toph did 7 seasons on T7S and rucurred on season 8 - hardly Shelley Long. Additionally, during most of that 8th season TG was filming SpiderMan 3 (released the following year) in NY while dating Ivanka Trump in his free time. That flick went on to gross $890,000,000 and no doubt Toph got some back end action so not too shabby.

The sitcom was winding down and TG still returned to make several appearances. He was so loved by the producers that he co-wrote and starred in their "Take Me Home Tonight" several years later. Very classy guy and very talented. Going places.

Highly doubt that Ivanka "beards," R73. She wouldn't need to. She's extremely bright, has got several solid gigs already, and more money than midas. If TG were gay, he'd be out - he's not the type to care what people think. I'm sure he was just being flirty with Chelsea because that's what you do on her show. He's very self-deprecating and is willing to look awkward for a laugh - watch some eps. of T7S on Netflix and you'll see what I mean. Has had a slew of women no doubt.

Heigl has too many people from too many different places and backgrounds saying she is a cunt (with examples) for it not to have some truth to it.

The other knock on her is bad management. Unfortunately, that means her mother.

Any woman who becomes identified with rom-coms in this day and age is delusional or has taken some very bad career advice.

It's the combination of the two I think that's tanking her career.

No one is going to cast her in a decent role to prove her talents (and I do think she has them) if she's a demanding cunt. Indy film-makers don't have the time or the budget, and that's where the good, comeback roles are found.

TV is a collaborative, writers' medium. Publicly and snottily criticizing your show's writing staff doesn't win you another pilot shot.

If she works with industry friends, maybe she can come back. Otherwise, she's done and it's her own fault.

She's just being stuck in these roles because there's no one else available in Hollywood right now.

That's gotta be some kinda sweet vindication for a gal like KH who plays by her own rules - especially while washing off the stink of this DeNiro/Keaton stinkbomb. Throw in a holiday hit (the Henson flick) and it's textbook career upswing. This truly is how its done. Brava.

Why would Zach Braff choose her to star in his movie? Does he want it to fail? Does he want a revolt? I'm sure people are now wanting to take their contribution back since they didn't disclose Heigl was going to be the star when they donated.

by Anonymousreply 11505/01/2013

Zach Braff's last film (Garden State) did very well and is considered something of a minor indie classic. I think he knows what he's doing, R115.

Actually, I wouldn't be surprised to see a rather substantial spike in donations once the Katie news gets out and circulates. Katie has a very big following from Roswell and Grey's. That the kind of rabid fanbase is probably what Braff had in mind when he asked her to topline. Good for fundraising and good for BO.

Katie hasn't even put the news out on Twitter yet. She's got 427.000 followers who will def. pony up - either on Kickstarter at the B. Office, or both.

I'm really excited about this project. I can't wait to see these 2 pull this off. I'd love it to be a new semi-franchise a la this Hawke/Delpy/Linklater series that's coming around again soon. Good stuff!

Don't feed the troll!!!!!

I was dragged to this movie by a group of friends last night. Full disclosure, I'm a white 36 year old married mom; target demographic for this monstrosity. I'd put it in with the five worst movies I've ever seen in the theater, and Weekend At Bernie's 2 is on that list. I don't even know where to begin. At one point, they're at a country club and KH's character says, "Who do I have to lynch to get a cosmo around here?" I'm not easily offended but that was a bridge too far. Topher Grace is the world's oldest looking 29 or 30 year old virgin. I don't know who wrote this, but no guy decides at 15!!! years old to save himself for love. Spoiler alert - one of the characters, the racist, rich mother-of-the bride is revealed to be gay or bisexual. Not sure; the character says one of her "fetishes" is women and is referred to with disdain and disgust for the rest of the movie as a lesbian. I won't even get into the reasons Deniro and Keaton have to pretend to be married b/c it's 2013 and not 1953 and it's not worth discussing. As for the acting, Deniro is great, of course. I know he's done a lot of s*it lately, but he still amazes after all these years and I'm embarrassed for him that he's in this. There's a scene where he has to show actual human emotion, and it's like he's in a different film. Keaton was annoying, Sarandon was beautiful and if she had the right movie, KH could be quite good but she's beautiful and there's nothing sexy about her and that's the problem. She has no charm and is impossible to connect with. Okay, sorry to write so much but really do not waste your money. Wait until it's on Netflix, drink a glass of wine or get high and watch it then. You won't be able to believe they somehow got this cast for this movie.

Garden State grossed $26m domesticc, which I guess is good for an indie with a $2.5m budget. But that was nine years agio!!!!

It's vulgar and casually racist in its attempt to belittle racism.

R121 Sounds fucking horrible. I also read they ripped off the Wedding Crashers getting jerked off under the table at dinner gag.

Holy shit to that lynching line.

Are Topher G. and Susie S. a thing or what???

by Anonymousreply 12505/01/2013

They did completely rip off the jerk off scene. This time with Topher Grace and his adopted brother's sister at the rehearsal dinner. I couldn't believe the lynching line. I thought at first I heard it wrong but it's in there. I'm still mystified by this movie.

Check out this video on Youtube "Katie Heigl Sexy Compilation" and let the world know if you stand by that statement, R121.

She was probably told to tone *down* her appeal in this latest flick because often times the older actresses (Keaton, Sarandon, etc.) are threatened of getting upstage, IMHO.

Very smart take on what Hollywood is trying to do to Heigl and why.

"When Katherine Heigl Opened Her Mouth: The Rise and Fall of a Hollywood Actress Who Refused to Play by the Rules"

An excerpt:

[quote] "Heigl is only one example of the double standard placed upon female celebrities. Male actors are praised for their candor, not criticized and called “rude.” Take Brad Pitt. Years ago, he said, “I’m one of those people you hate because of genetics.” It’s undoubtedly a cocky comment, but it doesn’t seem to have hurt his career. If a woman said the same thing, chances are that she would be deemed obnoxious, and her public image might suffer.

She is toxic Velveeta. They tried to make her a movie star and it failed. The fact that anyone would promote her here is astonishing.

Can Heigl go back to Grey's?

by Anonymousreply 13005/01/2013

r129 - that article was shit. The REAL reason is that Heigl is another idiot managed by her mother like Lara Flynn Boyle and she's not a big enough star to do her Goop-like overshares and pronouncements. Goop isn't either really and Ironman 3 might do as well in the USA due to Goop.

She's told Shonda she's available, R131. At this point I think it's a matter of "when" not "if."

Shonda may have a cip on her shoulder, but she's no dummy. No way she'd pass up the publicity of bringing Kate back for a few eps.

Katherine Heigl hates balls

by Anonymousreply 13305/01/2013

That was funny, R134.

Katie's deadpan made me think that after this Braff project, she should try to do a slapstick like Naked Gun or Airplane. She could totally do that Priscilla Presley thing.

Why are you calling her Katie like she is your best friend?

I got Katie Fever the first time I saw her in My Father the Hero.

by Anonymousreply 13805/02/2013

lolz@ R138. Not her best friend (that would be TR Knight). "Katie" is just her preferred moniker (check out her Twitter). Most in the press don't know this so they get it erroneous, based on her official SAG credit name "Katherine."

Katie is good for licking up all around the toilet rim.

Great flick, R139. That and Roswell made a me a true Katieber as well.

It's easy to see why and how KH is misunderstood.

1) the entitlement thing - she grew up in Connecticut in a very wealthy town ----however, her family was more middle than upper class and it was even considered declasse that her mom was trucking her into the city for acting jobs. unlike in la, this is considered trashy behavior in wealthier parts. (the kardashian whores would never fit in.) But when you grow up around self-impressed, monied people - you're not that impressed with the ding dongs raking in cash in Hollywood when you move out here - trust me.

2)the "taste" thing - I don't hold her at fault for this, but KH isn't well educated. So, when given the chance to make films, she veered in the direction of stuff she probably likes and thinks is good - romcom fluff. this isn't a girl who's going to target Soderbergh or someone of that ilk because that's not in her intellectual wheelhouse. Don't hate. Think of her as an excited barbie given the chance to make the kinds of movies she grew up loving.

3) she was right about the Apatow gang - they turn the waspy women into shrews in almost all of their films while the ugly Jewish males sit around farting. could we possibly see a class A guy with a class A girl in a comedy?

4) At the end of the day, KH is a waste of a target. She is a nice girl. If she's not acting nice, I guarantee it stems from an insecurity about the fact that she's not stage trained, she doesn't have an Ivy league education and she is not the smartest girl on the block. She just is who she is. Get over it and start hating on the dingbats in this town who have made money doing NOTHING: Nicole Ritchie, P Hilton, Kardashian whores, etc.

You nailed it, R143. I wish you would publish this in a blog or on HuffP. The backlash against KH is a total elitist thing. It's like "who let her in?" She's a total easy target but where's the sport in knocking this girl over and over?

by Anonymousreply 14405/02/2013

Everytime they show a picture of the Boston Bomber's wife I see Heigl. Am I alone in seeing similarities there? She should totally be cast in the Lifetime movie.

by Anonymousreply 14505/02/2013

Her reputation came to light when she publicly declined to accept consideration for an Emmy nomination because of poor writing on Greys Anatomy.

She also corrected an announcer at an awards show about the pronunciation of her name, criticized her most successful movie (knocked up) and didn't show for work on Grays Anatomy when scheduled.

She's made her own unpleasant reputation.

Her main problem is her stupid and ugly surname.

She was right about Knocked Up, but she should have kept quiet. It came across as biting the hand that feeds you.

Any idea how The Big Wedding is supposed to do this weekend? I am thinking it might do pretty well with people who don't want to see Iron Man. I'd love to see it do better than last weekend (although it seems like many flicks do best their debut weekend and then peter out). Anyone have any numbers or do we have to wait til Monday?

Its obvious this silly actress google alerts herself hence the bullshit PR on this thread I also heard she hires paps to follow her and now this damn hit the troll-dar button-oy! Waste of money to pay a fool we are not her audience.

by Anonymousreply 15305/04/2013

I very much doubt Katie would do that, R154. She has a very small team made up of her mom, her longtime agent, and a few close friends. She even does her own hair and makeup and makes a lot of her own clothes.

I'm going to see The Big Wedding again tonight with a few friends who haven't seen it. It would be cool to see how many DataLoungers we can get to go see this movie on the same night LOL. Anyone?
