Obama’s Movie “Southside With You” Bombs Finishes 13th For Weekend

When your movie is hailed by reviewers but finishes lower than Seth Rogen’s,” Sausage Party” you know the propaganda machine; also known as Hollywood is working overtime. The movie, ” Southside With You” premiered this past weekend, and by all accounts, don’t be surprised if it wins multiple Academy Awards at the upcoming event. But in the real world, it’s nothing more than a made for television movie that earned 3 million at the box office and finished 13th for the weekend.

According to The Hill:

Inspired by Barack and Michelle Obama’s first date, SOUTHSIDE WITH YOU recounts the eventful summer day in 1989 when a young law firm associate named Barack Obama (Parker Sawyers) tried to woo lawyer Michelle Robinson (Tika Sumpter) during a daylong date that took them from the Art Institute of Chicago to a screening of Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing to the site of their first kiss outside of an ice cream parlor.

As predicted, the critics are fawning all over it. Though in order for you to get me to see this movie I would have to be strapped in a chair as Alex DeLarge was in a “Clockwork Orange”.  Yes, I am that far removed from the First Family, and I am counting the days till they are a distant memory; and a bad one at that.

Are any of you part of the hand full that saw this film this past weekend? If so what is your take on it?
