OK, I'll admit it: I feel bad for Sharon Stone. Not bad enough to go see her movie, which judging from the reviews is so awful it might cause my eyeballs to burn out of my head. But maybe bad enough to send a fruit basket.
I'm referring of course to "Basic Instinct 2," which recorded an opening-weekend gross of $3.2 million. To put that number in perspective, a blank screen could probably gross $3.2 million if it had the right marketing campaign. ("It's the blank screen like you've never seen it before!" etc.)
