You know the saying, it's what you say, and what you don't. Rob Reiner's comedy And So It Goes is out of the top ten at the box office, and even more surprising is the PG-13 The Expendables 3 opening at the number four spot with only 16 million. With that cast? The toned down content with the corresponding rating a mistake? Also, The Giver, based on a huge bestselling book among middle and high school students across the country debuted at no. 5. Phillip Noyce, who appeared on our radar with Dead Calm (1989) and later directed Patriot Games (1992) and Clear and Present Danger (1994) is better with action and thrillers. His last film was Salt with Angelina Jolie, which The New Yorker called impersonal, but boy was it fun! Sentiment may not be his thing; even his Rabbit-proof Fence was propelled by a plot and journey on many levels. He'll be back. Perhaps he lost control of this one. Which brings us back to Reiner, though he's too talented to flop this many times. Or, this is the only kind of safe movie he can get made. But he made Flipped, also based on a well-liked book. Hopefully, he will be back, too.
