Right-Wing Documentary '2016: Obama's America' Steals Box-Office Show
thewrap.com ^ | 8/26/12

Posted on 08/26/2012 5:50:58 PM PDT by Justaham

conservative documentary “2016: Obama’s America” stole the show from Sly Stallone’s bad-ass geezers and three opening films at the weekend box office, on its way to an estimated $6.2 million total for the three days.

The $5,940 per-screen average posted by "2016: Obama's America" was easily the best among films playing widely. "Expendables 2" stayed on top in its second week with $13.2 million averaging $3,950 from 3,355 theaters.

The documentary purports to tell what things will be like should the president be re-elected. Distributor Rocky Mountain Pictures expanded it into 1,091 theaters (from 169 last week) just in time to cash in on the buzz surrounding the Republican National Convention.

Great movie. Fact based. No bashing. Very informative.

It served to focus my understanding of Obama and provided a clear and compelling picture of the strategy behind his anti-American governance.

saw it, great protrayal of a man who never took American History or Civics so he thinks he is beyond the law we all live by.

Retribution is at hand.

LOL! Not one bit of ‘right wing’ anything in that movie. Progressive, socialist, communist, fascist and Marxist but right wing? Nope!

Everyone needs to see this film.

It was a great movie, saw it last night, what surprised me the most was how non-partisan the movie really was, just a great fact based documentary. It doesn’t push the viewer to hate or love Obama, it just lays out in undeniable fashion the influences on him that lead to his ideologies. After watching it I am in shock as to how the American people let somebody like him get in office.

The media devoted more resources to investigating Joe the plumber's trade license and the DNA of Palin's Down Syndrome child than they did to the sordid history of Baraq Obama.

I am so glad this came out before BO’s Hollywood-fellating movie that is coming out just before the election.

The numbers are high for this movie honestly. Watch for inflated numbers for BOs movie as libs will buy their tickets by the dozens online and not even go. I bet the theaters after the initial release will be empty. Everyone already knows what an empty suit looks like and acts like, no one needs to waste two hours of their time for that crap.

The Los Angeles Times (reliable supporter of BO) today (8/26/2012) claims the movie is doing well because it is a “slow weekend.”

I saw it today with my cousins. We all thought it was well done and informative. I already knew much of the story, as all we Freepers do, but found information of which I was unaware. It certainly clearly laid out why we are in the situation we are in since the advent of the Obamessiah. Just because I understand better now doesn't mean he is correct in his agenda. I pray we can overthrow this dictator and return our country to the good, prosperous country that we once were.

Well, I haven't seen a movie in a theater since the original Jaws, but may go see this one. What was the sound volume like? I cannot stand loud noise. I wore earplugs to most movies and concerts we went to back in our dating years.

Saw it today with the wife. She was visibly shaken by what she saw.

That implies that she's been filtering out everything you've told her about that Bozo for five years.

It also means she trusts Dinesh D'Souza, whom she doesn't know, more than she does you. Hope that doesn't cut too close .... but I remark on it as something that seems to be "going around" a lot, as people who've ignored Rush, Hannity, Savage -- hell, ignored anyone with a brain -- finally begin to hear the penny drop when they can see the argument organized on a silver screen.

If this is an anti-Obama movie, then Obama, from Dreams from My Father, wrote a good part of it (or Bill Ayers).

Saw it today.It reconfirmed....no,strengthened...my contempt for our Community Organizer In Chief.This is because I gained new insight into the depth and breadth of *his* contempt for the country that I and several generations of my Irish ancestors have worked so hard to faithfully serve.

1. Shelby Steele statement.

2. The visual of the squalor in Indonesia amd Kenya.

3. Obama in his own words via dreams from his father amd the reality of what his father advocated.

If Jack Kennedy were alive today he would vigorously kick Barky's ass.

Andy Jackson and Teddy Roosevelt would just shoot him and let God sort it out.

That's Slick Willie over there with that bunch on the right, applauding, isn't it? Figures. Him and FDR.

George was great! wish that his half brother had half the sense that he does. Even if it turns out that George is a shyster, at least he is many times more the capitalist than his relative occupying our most valuable residence.

Great movie! Take someone with you to see it.

The movie-maker is able to explain the influences of President Obama and how an Anti-Colonialism theology guides his action across the world stage.

I haven't seen the movie yet, but I have been reading the book, The Roots of Obama’s Rage that the movie is based on. Surprisingly the book is based largely on Obama’s own fictional autobiographies. It is interesting that Dinesh D’Souza was able to recognize in Obama the anti-colonialist attitudes he witnessed from his own family members growing up. I do not think that someone who wasn't originally from a third world former colony could have come up with this perspective.

I have to admit that Obama’s apparent hatred of America and the American way has been baffling to me. I can't say that I agree with all of Dinesh D’Souza’s conclusions, but he is probably closer to the mark than anyone else. I am very glad that the movie is doing so well. I am curious how much of the information in the book is included in the movie and if the movie has info not included in the book. Hopefully, I will be able to watch it in the next few days.
