From studio perspective, $100 million domestic is disappointing. Something like this movie, Lionsgate wanted $200 million domestic. It's not even in top 12 anymore - made less than Eat Pray Love and The Other Guys yesterday for movies that age. Lionsgate will make profit of course, but below expectations for a movie with Sly, Bruce, and Arny in the ads.
