G.I. JANE ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


G.I. Joe may be marching into theaters today, but it's G.I. Jane who reigns supreme at 7th and Montana. The colorful character, known for her military-style crewcut, an abundance of tattoos and plenty of attitude, made the scene at Our Favorite Starbucks recently and let's just say she's not in line to win any congeniality awards. On the other hand, something tells me she's more of a crowd pleaser than Paramount's $175 million film. Despite the fact that the studio went to great lengths to keep reviewers away from G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra, the initial reports are just in. "(It) plays like a long slog in the big muddy," says Richard Corliss of Time. "It's possible that never before in the annals of cinema has so much destruction been depicted on screen to so little purpose, unless you count brain or ear damage," says Peter Howell of The Toronto Star. Who knows, Jane, this might be your Big Break. With reviews like this, Hasbro just might be looking for a new Action Figure in the near future ...!

Up until your post, I thought I had heard postive reviews, or at least anticipation, for this flick. Not going to rush out, or pre-order or anything, so will rely on your judgement :o)
