    Get Him to The Greek = FLOP
    Killers = FLOP
    Sex and the City 2 = FLOP

    So far the summer season has been a total whiff. I can smell the stanch of these pieces of trash movies from a mile away. All these movies will lose tons of money and they should as they are pathetic movies and pathetic ideas.
