Damn. They are givin’er on promoting this movie.

Queen Latifah, Diane Keaton, and of course Katie Holmes were on hand today to ring the opening bell at the NASDAQ. Not a bed marketing move, actually.

Of course the Queen and Diane are adorable. And Katie too. Sort of. Spacey yes. But adorable. In white. And doing that tongue between the teeth smile that Tom loves so much.

Too bad it’s all for naught. Because the movie is getting critically slaughtered. And it goes head to head on January 18th against Katherine Heigl’s 27 Dresses which is generating a lot of positive buzz.

Will be interesting to see which side the MiniVan Majority falls on. They do love Katie Holmes but they also think Katie Heigl blows amazingness out of her ass.

My mad money is on Heigl. The lesser of two evils, I suppose. Ugh.
