The Anna Faris Rule

I like Anna Faris. She's cute and seems funny and talented. She's been in a lot of movies:
  1. Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel
  2. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
  3. Observe and Report
  4. Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel
  5. The House Bunny
  6. Mama's Boy
  7. Smiley Face
  8. My Super Ex-Girlfriend
  9. Scary Movie 4
  10. Just Friends
  11. Brokeback Mountain
  12. Waiting
  13. Scary Movie 3
  14. Lost in Translation
  15. The Hot Chick
  16. May
  17. Scary Movie 2
  18. Scary Movie
However, I'm convinced the poor girl can't read because she stars in some of the worst movies ever produced. And to prove my point, I paid a visit to Rotten Tomatoes.

Of the eighteen films listed above, only five were determined "Fresh" by Rotten Tomatoes (60% or more of the film's reviews were favorable). It should be noted, that Smiley Face and May were just barely over the mark, with ratings of 62% and 68%, respectively. Basically, only three of her films received great reviews: Lost In Translation, Brokeback Mountain, and Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs.

So this means that nearly three-fourths of her movies were deemed "Rotten" (59% or less of the film's reviews were favorable). Ten of her films received ratings of 40% or below and four of them received ratings of 21% or below. Hell, Mama's Boy received a rating of 8%. Eight percent! That's Ed Wood territory!

But despite the fact that almost three-fourths of her movies stink, they make money. Anna Faris is like freaking Midas. Only fourteen of the eighteen films listed above were given a wide domestic release. But four of those fourteen grossed over $100 million domestically. Those fourteen films have grossed a total $1.08 billion dollars domestically.

What's my point? My point is Anna Faris makes a lot of dumb movies that make a lot of money.

So without further ado, here's the trailer for her upcoming film, Yogi Bear:

Draw your own conclusions.
