shorting [MPRN3]. Seriously, why is this stock still floating a good H$40 above its likely adjust? It's at 10% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is up from 8% yesterday, but still abysmal (the original hit 84%). The user reviews on Yahoo! are scathing. I take those with a grain of salt, obviously, given the strong likelihood of plants, but still, there have to be SOME real comments. Love the cast. But I have this theory that in most (not all) series of three movies, at least one will be bad. More evidence for that here.

DL: 'Little Fockers' Opens with $7.2M   Oleg Max on Dec 23, 07:54

ERC: has MPRN3 at $7M, TGRIT and Tron at $5.5M   islander on Dec 23, 07:57

ERC also says estimated 7M for MPRN3, 5.5M for TRON2 & TGRIT   lobogotti on Dec 23, 07:58

revised math based off 7 mill   Oleg Max on Dec 23, 08:01

following lobogotti math below we have...   Oleg Max on Dec 23, 07:58

can u do true grit too? {nm}   adn21 on Dec 23, 08:10

i don't think it will follow the same pattern, not exactly comparing apples to apples here, but if it did, math inside...   Oleg Max on Dec 23, 08:20

You're right... it won't follow the same pattern and all these calculations based on a sequel that came out 6 years ago is kind of silly. {nm}   secretstalker on Dec 23, 08:32

so, how much do you think it will make then? {nm}   Oleg Max on Dec 23, 09:00

I'll let you know on Saturday at 8:55 PM :) {nm}   secretstalker on Dec 23, 09:10

i remember someone was saying it won't make   Oleg Max on Dec 23, 09:27

It will make more than 28 million on the weekend. Christmas Day and the day after are big movie days.   secretstalker on Dec 23, 09:29

Just averaging what it made opening day (which is very possible) would give it $37.5 million in five days. That's its minimum. {nm}   secretstalker on Dec 23, 09:30

hmm, hmm...   Oleg Max on Dec 23, 09:42

That post you linked to was about True Grit, nothing to do with Little Fockers.   secretstalker on Dec 23, 10:37

i thought we were talking about true grit. i posted    Oleg Max on Dec 23, 10:47

Oh, sorry, I thought we were still talking about MPRN3. I think TGRT will end up with around $30-32 million for the five days {nm}   secretstalker on Dec 23, 10:51

no biggie... looks like we are on the same page...   Oleg Max on Dec 23, 11:14

Meet the Fockers had weekend-to-opening-day ratio of 3.82; I don't expect Little Fockers to surpass that   xiayun on Dec 23, 14:01
