FEATURING a HIGH-PROFILE STAR from TV's GREY'S ANATOMY with ABOVE-the-TITLE BILLING, and LOOKING for ALL the WORLD LIKE a MALE CLONE of 27 DRESSES, COMES MADE OF HONOR, SOME STUPID STUDIO EXEC's IDEA of a CHICK-FLICK COUNTER-PROGRAMMER to IRON MAN.

FROM TWO of the RAZZIE® NOMINATED SCREENWRITERS of 2004 WORST PICTURE NOMINEE SURVIVING CHRISTMAS, and the RAZZIE® NOMINATED DIRECTOR of 1987 WORST PICTURE "WINNER" LEONARD: PART 6, HONOR WILL LIKELY GET RUN OVER at the BOX OFFICE LIKE the PROVERBIAL DEER in the HEADLIGHTS.  THEN, LIKE 27 DRESSES, IT'LL SHOW UP on DVD a FEW WEEKS LATER.

FEEL FREE to JOIN THE DIS-RECEPTION LINE BELOW, and LET the LOVELY COUPLE KNOW EXACTLY WHATCHA THINK...

I'd say unless Iron Man sells out nationwide (which it might) and this thing's playing in adjacent theatres all over the place, Iron Man will blast Made of a Honor a new one (the painful way) come this weekend...

I originally posted this elsewhere in the forum since I could not find anything on this earlier so here I go again...

So far for the weekend of May 2nd  I have a feeling that "Made of Honor" maybe the pick for worst New Movie of the Week. Has all the classic signs...Not screened for critics, the entire plot lifted from previous works (In this case Julia Roberts "My Best Friends Wedding"), and very little pre-release info promoting the movie. Sure smells like a stinker to me.

Anyways, I still say this is more of a rip-off of "My Best Friends Wedding" than "27 dresses".

I'd say at the very least Iron Man will make anywhere between $80 million (Low end expectations) theo $130 million (High End, give or take $15 million) at the box office this weekend (of course this is all domestic Box Office). It will need at least that to be considered profitable, with a price tag that is currently on this movie ($186 million in production and I'm guessing $125 million for prints and advertising).

I just got done voting in a poll at Box Office Mojo about Which May Releases would do best in different catagories, and "Made Of Honor" is not looking so hot. This is from about 2000 voters thus far...

And RT already has it at 20% Rotten thus far!!! (And the reviews are not too flattering)

The odds of this movie going down in flames are looking pretty good at this point!!!

Wow. With all the people who have abysmal film histories working on this project, it almost makes you wonder if the movie is for real.

In fact, i refuse to acknowledge this film's existence. This has to be a prank of some kind. You can't purposefully combine that much ineptitude into a single piece of work without causing some kind of rift in the space/time continuum. It just isn't scientifically possible.

Way better than I had originally targeted at, I thought for sure it would sink at between 8-9 million. With a reported $40 million budget this supreme "My Best Friends Wedding" Rip off my actually show a profit by the time it sells on DVD .

Maybe there should be a new Razzie award: "Beating That Dead Horse" or "Milking that Cash Cow Until It Screams".

Seriously, the people making these movies (or their financiers) don't live on the planet we call Earth . . . .

I have no plan on seeing this. My cousin saw it and said it was predictable,
but entertaining, but you know how it is with girls, just give them a movie
with a cute boy and plenty of hot dogs, and they wont care just how sh*tty a
movie is.

I'm curious as to how this one didn't make it to the "Trifecta of Trash" this week.....

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: I decided listing more than 3 titles would be overkill -- But it was a hard call which of the four RAZZIE®-worthy movies being released on DVD today was the "least RAZZ-able."

It came down to the numbers -- which 3 had the worst cost-to-grosses ratio as against which had the lowest RT Rating. Both 88 MINUTES and GURU were savaged by RT crix and failed at the B.O. So it came down to SPEED RACER and MADE for the third slot -- Although RACER had the highest RT numbers of the four (about 35%) it also possibly the year's biggest box office bomb (grossing $44 million against a budget of about $120 million). Of these two, MADE had a lower RT Rating (12%) but was the only one of the four that grossed more than it had cost (it took in $46 million, and reportedly cost about $40).

With only SEX AND THE CITY as a major title coming to DVD next weak, MADE OF HONOR may be the bride instead of a bride's maid then...

Remember when romantic comedies used to charm and please, where they
followed an original story and we enjoyed watching the journey the man and
the woman took together?

Neither did I. There isn't a single moment in this movie's story line that isn't
recycled or formulaic. Even my seven-year-old cousin who knew nothing
about this movie could predict every moment that was going to happen.

Worst Director, Worst Screenplay, and Worst Remake or Ripoff (for My Best
Friend's Wedding
and any other chick flicks that came before it).

This is another potential nominee for Worst Screen Couple, but I doubt it ranks with either Paris Hilton/Christine Lakin ("hottie & The Nottie") and Kate Hudson/Matthew McConaughey/Dane Cook "My Best Friend's Girl").

I disagree. I think the only strength of the movie is the screen
couple(despite Patrick Dempsey's character being a creepy jerk who stalks her at her wedding, asks her to marry him, and embarrasses her in front of all of her -- and the groom's -- friends).
