Jim Carrey used to be a movie star. He commanded a salary of $20 million per movie or more. Lately however, he has been reduced to tweeting out offensive child-like paintings of conservatives he doesn’t like. That is beginning to hit his bottom line. People are tuning him out.
John Nolte reports at Breitbart:
Box Office Poison: Jim Carrey’s New Movie Went Straight-to-Video
Last year, Jim Carrey’s The Bad Batch, managed to gross just $181,000 in theaters — and that is the good news. Carrey’s latest movie, the $4.5 million thriller Dark Crimes, just went directly to home video.
Yep, for a measly $6.99, you can watch Jim Carrey’s latest in the comfort of your home; that is, if you really want to. Dark Crimes earned a bad-as-bad-can-be 0% at Rotten Tomatoes, so you might want to wait for Netflix, or skip it altogether.
What a fall.
What a collapse.
What a breathtaking implosion of the aging Carrey’s career, a juggernaut that began in 1994 with the come-from-nowhere blockbuster Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, and held on for another 14 years when Carrey’s name could still drive a forgettable piece junk like Yes Man to $97 million.
When Jim Carrey focused on making funny movies, he was beloved by millions of Americans. But like so many in Hollywood, far left wing politics ruined his image and made him seem crazy in the process.
Might be time to retire.
