Apparently, the folks in Hollywood don't think that the dreadful quality of this summer's movies have anything to do with the poor turnout. They're also not blaming the ever-increasing price of a movie ticket and the struggling economy. They haven't even gotten to the point where they blame other entertainment options like video games for stealing away precious mindshare. No, they're blaming text messaging. Studio execs say it's these damn kids today with their mobile phones sending text messages to their friends on opening night telling them just what a dud "The Hulk" is that have stopped everyone from going to the movies. Next thing you know, they'll be crying to Congress to ban text messaging for taking away their ability to profit from their terrible movies.
