Emma Stone is over rated as an actor.  She got her jump to fame from Spider-man, which was a poor performance at best.  I will see the movie anyway since it's not Transformers related.

Sorry bud, but Emma Stone is a great actress, and Spiderman had nothing to do with her jump to fame.  If anything she was brought on to Spiderman to give it an actor/actress that anyone cared about.

Zombieland, Easy A, The Help...nah she earned her stripes and road to fame well before SpiderMan.

May have to check this out next weekend but will definitely see it at the movies.

Wow it's getting killed on rt I'm surprised given the A list cast.

Btw where's the review for A Haunted House? Not that I really need one I just want Rob to have to suffer through that pile ;) Man does that look awful. I almost want to see it just to see how bad it really is and to test myself, it looks more excruciating than Marine Corps boot camp

Emma stone happened way before Spiderman, and if you haven't seen The Help, then you don't know how good she is!  And yeah, Easy A, Zombieland........hell even Superbad and Housebunny were good performances for her and she was barely in them! 

I saw a trailer for this before Django and couldn't help thinking that it looked boring, Sean Penn looked like he was way over-acting, and was oddly appropriate at the end of the boring trailer that his character says you'll be begging for a bullet by the end!  I had higher hopes for this too, based purely on the cast, oh well, Zero Dark Thirty opens wide pretty soon, I can't wait to see that film!!!

A Haunted House does deserve to have a review on this site.

Sean Penn is one of the most overrated actors in Hollywood (and I won't even get into my personal feelings about him personally, his politics or his actions during Iraq war).  So, I wasn't going to see this film anyway.

But with that said, I love gangster films, so it's too bad that this one has become a waste of potential opportunity to revive the genre.

This is a movie I'll see eventually in theaters but I still have get to Django and 0Dark30.

I agree Stone has earned her rise to fame. I also like her (and Jennifer Lawrence) personality in interviews. Fun, a little zany, but serious about their craft. A far, far cry from the wasted talent of Lindsay Lohan.

 If only they would show boobs like Lindsay Lohan did though.

Emma Stone was also very good in "Crazy, Stupid, Love". And sorry but Sean Penn is not an overrated actor at all Cap. I strongly disagree with that one.

But ya, sucks that this movie is flopping. I also wanted to love this one. I still have a lot to catch up tho when it comes to the movies anyways, so I guess it doesn't really matter. Any suggestions on prioritizing for me fellas? I still need to see Lincoln, Zero Dark Thirty, Life of Pi, Les Miserables are on my list of must sees still..
