Proof that the American male is not yet totally feminized.
Interestingly, Piranha 3D, which I thought looked fun in an intentionally campy sort of way, did poorly. I don’t think the viewing audience knows what to do with high production value but intentionally campy movies like this or, for another example, the much anticipated but underperforming Snakes on a Plane. Audience like intentional spoofs like this weekend’s Vampires Suck, and they like (on TV at least) intentionally campy but obviously B movie fair, but they don’t know what to do with intentionally campy mainstream releases that look like they belong on the Syfy Channel. That’s my take on Piranha 3D’s underwhelming performance at least.
