Don't shoot the messenger even the NY Times agrees with my assessment
If you think I haven't acknowledged certain weaknesses in the film's performance you're mistaken. As things stand now, the opening was below expectations, but the legs are good so far. The domestic gross will be lower than Paramount hoped for, but the foreign increases give the film a good chance to end up in the $450 million range, which would be decent. The $500 million worldwide Paramount no doubt hoped for is probably a bridge too far, but we'll see how the foreign numbers unfold in the territories to go.
