John:

Thanks for sharing your assessment.  I think it would make me
want to give up religion as well.

But others disagree. I just heard opening weekend was the biggest
of all time: $150 Million-plus in gross receipts over two days.

Perhaps he'll donate so much money to the Catholic Church it will
be able to keep all those priests from going  jail.
