Us is reporting a rumor that Jessica Simpson's movie Blonde Ambition will go straight to DVD here in the U.S., though it will get a theatrical release internationally. I find this amusing for two main reasons:
- Big daddy/manager Joe Simpson pulled the movie's summer release date because he apparently didn't want it to have to compete with the summer's big movies. So now it seems like he doesn't have much faith in the movie... at all.
- Why should international audiences be subjected to the movie if we're not?
According to a source in the Us piece, the blame for the movie's failure is placed squarely on Simpson: "'The movie is absolutely horrible,' says a source. 'It’s just a bomb, mainly because of Jessica’s acting.'" Thank goodness it's not Luke Wilson's fault, though I do think he made a big mistake signing on for this in the first place. I wonder what will happen with Major Movie Star, Simpson's current film project. If you haven't cringed through the trailer for Blonde Ambition, you can check it out here.
