Hey, Hollywood people, thanks for taking this meeting. I wish I had some good news about the new movie "Stop-Loss." But I don't. It's a bomb, a major disaster at the box office despite the presence of Ryan Phillippe. Sorry.

One thing: Why do you guys keep making these Iraq war films when nobody wants to see them? I mean, "Home of the Brave" went straight to video, and most theaters wouldn't even consider "Redacted." I understand that billionaire Mark Cuban has no clue, but come on, the guy spends more than five million bucks on "Redacted" and it grosses about $65,000. Wow, that's some write-off.

As you know, even the big boys are getting hammered with these anti-American movies. Tom Cruise and Robert Redford took in just $15 million for "Lions for Lambs."
Update: The anti-Vietnam movies were critical and box office hits, but these anti-war movies have all been flops. The Dear Hunter was a great movie!
