    It would appear SEX & THE CITY has no legs at the box-office.

    Which one was awesome Tammy, Kung Fu Panda or You Don’t Mess With The Zohan? I think both previews looked really good but, I want to see You Don’t Mess With The Zohan more. Sandler is so funny…a little weird at times, like Jim Carey but, funny nonetheless.

    Kung Fu Panda seems to be funny.

    Kung Fu Panda kicked butt. Took my kids to see it. My son loved it. My daughter wants to be the tiger. It was well scripted and Jack Black’s voice and character really shone through in the movie. The people picked right at the box office this weekend.
