The Boys Weekly Box Office Report! / Plus, Chip's Christmas Joke Gallery!

The Keanu Reeves remake of the 1951 sci-fi classic The Day the Earth Stood Still took the weekend's number one spot with 31 million. How do the boys feel about remakes?

Chip: "In favor. In fact, I think every film made before 1980 and anything in black and white should be remade, preferably in 3-D. Unlike literature, films are entertainment, not art, so let's enjoy updating them every few years by plugging in hot and fresh new actors, like Hanna Montana or that sexy vampire boy from Twilight."

Richard: "Generally against, but I have to admit a certain excitement at Soderberg's 3-D 'rock and roll musical' version of Cleopatra. Certainly more people will see that than his current four-hour Che Guevara film which only gets a one-week run in New York because all other theaters need their screens to squeeze in a few extra showings of Delgo, feauturing the voice talents of Freddie Prinze Jr. and Jennifer Love Hewitt."


As the LC inches toward hiatus--'a long winter nap' beginning later this week--Chip has kindly offered to share a few of his favorite holiday jokes with readers.

Chip: "How did Santa Claus greet the three sorostitutes?" "Ho ho ho!"

I just threw up a little in my mouth. And a lot on my keyboard.

You threw up with joy and anticipation, I assume?!
