Brokeback Mountain: Globes-Yes! Box Office-No!

The money, it never does lie:

Brokeback Mountain
683 screens
$32,074,517 Total Box Office

1,498 screens
$33,807,605 Total Box Office

706 screens
$44,260,777 Total Box Office

Now, in comparison:

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
3,224 screens
$264,020,859 Total Box Office

So Hollywood's triumverate of liberal morality plays - gay cowboys, sympathetic terrorists, and evil American oil companies - combined still fall short of one fantasy flick (with Christian overtones).

Once these losers finish their back slapping and self-congratulations about "sticking it to the man" with their films, they are going to wake up and realize that no one, outside of their liberal interest groups, went to see them!

And then the blame is gonna fly - "censorship", "closed-mindedness", the "right-wing media" - are all going to take the fall for Hollywood's moral depravity and its tin ear towards Middle American morality. And the media will be there to blow the horn for them...

Boy, it's gonna be a sight to behold.
