DiCaprio Global Warming Movie Bombs

Greenpeace cofounder Patrick Moore isn't the only one with no use for Tinseltown weenie Leonardo DiCaprio's attempt to climb aboard the global warming bandwagon just as an axle breaks and the wheels fall off.

Narrated and cowritten by DiCaprio, and based on a book by Err Un-American leftist Thom Hartmann (aspiring Senator Al Frankenberry's replacement), The 11th Hour has grossed a pathetic $417,913 from ticket sales 18 days after its release.

This despite plenty of friendly hype from The New York Slimes and See BS. The film is so boring that the audience reportedly fell asleep even at moonbat-infested Cannes.

Thankfully, The 11th Hour probably won't earn back what it cost to make. When the global warming hoax stops being profitable, Hollyweird will move on to its next bogus crusade, which with luck will be less economically pernicious.

Surely you exaggerate.

Interviewer: "Hey Leo, how long do you think your career will last?"

The problem is that this pretty boy's timing is off. He should've done this six months ago, but the global warming fad is past its sell-by date now, and well into Ricky Martin/shark summer territory.

Next time, Leo, start paddling when the wave is approaching, not when it's already crested. Little publicity surfing tip.

This movie is sinking faster than the Titanic did (back when Leo was actually famous). Maybe he can join Al Gore and be his Monica Lewinsky. He needs something to plug up his cry hole.

Aww, poor Leonardo DiCraprio's movie is bombing! Hopefully, he's getting the message that his career is over. The only film in which he ever gave a good performance was 'Romeo & Juliet.'
