What To Do If Your Movie Bombs?

Why blame Bush of course. You just can't make this stuff up.

Paul Verhoeven director of the first "Basic Instinct" (which scored $353 million worldwide) as well as the widely ridiculed "Showgirls" (now regarded as something of a camp classic), attributes the genre's demise to the current American political climate.

"Anything that is erotic has been banned in the United States," said the Dutch native. "Look at the people at the top (of the government). We are living under a government that is constantly hammering out Christian values. And Christianity and sex have never been good friends."

Couldn't be that it's just a bad movie eh? I must have missed the law "banning anything erotic." The intlellectually challenged elites never cease to amaze me.
