A wacky disaster comedy starring Ben Stiller, Reese Witherspood, and a volcano?
Sounds like box office gold?
More like box office meltdown!
We actually can't make much sense of the premise for Cameron Crowe's next flick, but we'll give it a shot.
Something about Ben Stiller as a disgraced weapons specialist sent to Hawaii to launch a satellite. He requires the help of the islanders, who are willing to oblige under the condition that their island gods be appeased. And of course, the only way to appease gods is to feed a volcano a virgin sacrifice - or, you know, as close as you can get to that these days. Ben Stiller runs into former flame Reese Witherspoon and we're sort of hoping she ends up in the lava.
Hollywood must be hurting.
