Last night, I was talking about movies with my friend Mark. He mentioned a new romantic comedy with Cameron Diaz, Jude Law, Jack Black and Kate Winslet. We agreed that it sounded really awful. I asked him if he’d see it for $50, knowing he’d say no.
He said he would see it for $100, but then raised it to $120. This has reminded me of similar conversations I’ve had: I know I’ve set my price for seeing a Robin Williams movie at $500. I might see an animated movie with Robin Williams for $120, but not for less.
I wouldn’t watch “The Passion of the Christ” for $1 million. I just don’t need the money that much. I wouldn’t see “Hostel,” of any of the “Saw” movies for any price. It’s not only moral grounds. I simply couldn’t take it.
I think I could see a film with Kate Hudson, but not if Owen Wilson was in it, too. That would probably take $500, minimum.
Anybody care to name their price for any movies? I’m really interested!
