One Nation’s Trash Is Another Nation’s Treasure

posted by on October 29 at 11:39 AM


The Jessica Simpson-joins-the-military comedy Major Movie Star has never been released within the United States, for reasons made clear in the trailer. But as Fox News reports, the film recently topped the box office in Russia.

Next up for a movie described by one of its participants as “maybe one of the worst films ever made”: a November premiere in Bulgaria. So far there’s no U.S. release date set. Nor is there one for any other country in which English is the primary language.

Dear Russia: Send me a self-addressed, stamped barrel and I’ll return it with Jessica Simpson stuffed inside.

Sounds like a waste of a perfectly good barrel to me...

She's the Jerry Lewis of her generation.

I am deeply shamed for thinking I'm right on this, but here goes...

That picture of her is from GQ a few years ago. She's wearing a stars and stripes bikini.

I have to go stab myself in the eye now.

When was that trailer made? I don't think anyone has made a trailer like that since 1997.

Steve Guttenberg! Seriously, this movie was better back when it was called Private Benjamin.
