On Sunday November 30 HM made around $5 million US box office.  On Monday December 1 it only made $700,000 or so, according to Box Office Mojo, a drop of just under 85%.  

Rich finally saw this movie, said it was "just OK", didn't laugh much, and actually found parts of it offensive and didn't care to see it again.  FWIW.

Yes, and I'll have more details about my opinions about the movie soon.

Tonight I was setting up a new surround-sound system so we can hear Pirates of the Caribbean better!

The creaks you hear are in the script

Quick quote:
..."The Haunted Mansion," a sort of "Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy" with enough high-tech effects to stock a Disney theme park. Which isn't that surprising, since the movie's main inspiration (so to speak) is Disneyland's ride of the same name.

Eddie Murphy and Marsha Thomason play a husband-and-wife team of real estate brokers, who have two bright children... Murphy can be a crafty comedian when he's got good material to work with, but the screenplay by David Berenbaum ("Elf") is rarely as funny - or scary - as it wants to be. Neither is Rob Minkoff's directing, which puts so much energy into orchestrating the film's flashy ectoplasm that there's little left over for first-rate comic timing and clever camerawork.

The movie does have its pleasures. Wallace Shawn is perfect as an obsequious servant, Jennifer Tilly makes the most of her small role as a disembodied soothsayer, and Stamp exudes the finely tuned campiness that Vincent Price contributed to so many Edgar Allan Poe pictures of yore.
[...]
While it may supply giggles and shivers to preteens, grownups should think twice before entering this all-too-haunted house.

Full details.

I went last week.... it was funny enough, but the main thing I liked were the inside stuff from the ride.... It truly had real potential and I think they kind of blew it... I waited so long for it... I can't wait to buy POTC this week... that will make me feel better... I just hope they don't blow the sequel....
