Overhyped Feminist Movie “North Country” Huge Flop

By Debbie Schlussel
For all of the hype and big money spent on feminist movie “North Country,” it was a miserable failure.
Not even two thumbs up by Ebert & Roeper fooled who didn’t want to see another “fiction based on fact” liberal propaganda film–Charlize Theron or not. The movie–about a female coal miner who sues to stop alleged discrimination against female miners–came in 5th, bringing in less than $6.5 million.
We’re happy to report that even a much bally-hooed “Oprah” show on the movie did not help.

Even more embarrassing, “North Country” trailed awful movies such as “Doom” (starring former wrestler “The Rock,” Dwayne Johnson), which was #1 and bad remake, “The Fog,” which came in at #4. Even more appropriate, kiddie movies, “Dreamer” and “Wallace & Gromit,” were ahead of “North Country,” at #2 and #3, respectively.
All evidence that Tinseltown may offer liberalism up, but movie-goers aren’t having it. Maybe Hollywood will finally realize it’s time to get out of the leftist propaganda business. Wishful thinking.

I believe the first two women to sue their way into coal mine jobs were killed in mine accidents. Big pay, big risk.
You would not get me underground on a bet.

Great film. I’m all for movies like this. Hollyweird should make a lot more movies that espouse Liberal insanity and anti-America bullshit like this bomb, because the quicker they go financially bankrupt, the quicker we get our country back.

Yeah, right…It’s the movie industry keeping our country from us. I’ve noticed people around here are really afraid of movies controling our lives. I think I’m just going to go somewhere and cry…

Cheezbrain,
Liberals have hijacked many facets of American culture, i.e., Hollywierd, academia, the news media, government bureaucracy at all levels, etc. Hollyweird is just one contributing factor in the attempt to destroy this country by glorifying everything that’s bad about America, and villifying everything that made America great.
Not a week goes by without a film release depicting Socialism as the way to a better American Utopia, that Capitalism is evil, that America is the cause of everything that’s wrong with the world, that Americans are oppressors, that the vast military/industrial complex create wars for profit, and that our Founding Fathers were nothing but slave-beating, rapists.
Not a day goes by without yet another asinine statement from some banal actor telling us how we must live our lives, how we must bring up our children, and that they, the “enlightened” Hollyweird morons, have all the answers to international geopolitics. These are the same assholes, like; Cher, Blabra Streisand, Sean Penn, Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon, et al, who’d be, A: Waiting tables, or, B: Washed-up former porn actors, if it weren’t for their “good fortune” being on the right casting couch, at the right time. These are the same people who treat the rest of the “great unwashed” with absolute and utter disdain.
So, when Hollyweird goes financially bankrupt (they’re already ideologically and morally bankrupt), and they can no longer wreak havoc on the American landscape, we will get our country back all the more quickly.

Yawn, yet another boring movie produced. Hey Deb, why don’t you show them whores in Hollywood what a real movie should be like? Amazing thing though, people out here couldn’t care less about Hollywood. It’s a shithole and there are homeless lying on the sidewalk pissing and crapping in their pants. Don’t get me wrong, I love L.A., but when politics (both right and left) stifle us, then It sucks out here. Ironically, when we go outside of the four-walls called tinseltown and cruise the farm-belt, it’s an eye-opening experience. Hell, if it weren’t for the tornadoes and humidity, I would love to live in the midwest. So another lousy movie in the shit-can

Thee_Bruno is right on the money. Maybe if the motion picture industry concentrated on films that really meant something to Americans instead of telling us what issues that they think ought to be on our minds, the studios wouldn’t be gettin’ taken to the cleaners. But I last read that Disney lost between $250 and $300 million last quarter. Why? ‘Cause they, along with all of the rest, keep making pure crap.

I live amongst the Hollywood elite, being that I’m in Los Angeles. It’s not the “liberal” movies that make people liberal, it can’t be, because, no one is watching the movie. It can’t be television, because, the FCC is clamping down on “indecency.” And you all know radio blows, so is it the liberals in Hollyweird that influence and create policy? Is it the Sean Penn of the world of Msssssssssssss. Angelina DSL Jolie (You have to be a Howard Stern listener to know what DSL means) Heck no! You’re giving those two retards and people like them too much credit!
Oh and it’s not even the conservatives either. So who is it?
The corporation is behind all this. Can Brad Pitt be where he’s at without the corporation? Nope. He is the creation of Hollywood. Lindsay Lohan was stalked by the paparazzi’s because she was made famous. Imagine if there were no paparazzis? Then Lindsay Lohan and the like would look for photographer and there would be more Winona Ryders committing crimes. No, the actors and actresses are nothing without the multinational corporation and both conservative and liberal actors, actresses, radio and T.V. show hosts would be just like you and me.
Think about it

Thee_Bruno,
“Liberals have hijacked many facets of American culture, i.e., Hollywierd, academia, the news media, government bureaucracy at all levels, etc.”
Why do you give that much credit to the Liberals when it’s the Republicans who are the majority in the House and Senate? And aren’t there more Red than Blue states in America? How can a minority be so powerful that they fear turning over Roe Vs. Wade? Maybe because what you’re saying is true, but the conservatives are actually liberals?

I hope to God you’re not giving Hollyweird that much power that they can keep Roe Vs. Wade legal, are you? I have to disagree with your comments. Read my comments above about Hollywood.
