Jessica Simpson's 'Major Movie Star' shines ... in Russia
To all the hate-mongers out there who want to restart the Cold War, here's food for thought: Jessica Simpson bomb Major Movie Star, in which the bouncy blond joins the army after her film career tanks (hmmm), is a box office hit! Time to take those reds down!
Fox News reports that the flick, which still has no U.S. release date, opened in the Motherland on Oct. 9 to great fanfare, despite being labeled "one of the worst films ever made" by some nebulous source in the production department. It was directed by Steve Miner and has about 15 people with producer credits, including creepy papa Joe.
Next up for this roller-coaster premiere ride? That hotbed of celluloid history, Bulgaria. There are as yet no plans to release the movie in theaters in any English-speaking country. Maybe they've found the secret to Simpson's success -- dubbing and subtitles!
