Jane Fonda, why hast thou forsaken us?

So much for her status as a feminist icon. Not to be ironically sexist about the whole thing, but she was married to Ted Turner, so this can't be about needing the money. Even more depressing than the fact that she's starring in a generic Jennifer Lopez komedy (is there any other kind?) is the revelation that Meet the Fockers was the highest grossing comedy of all time. That can't be right, can it? Holy Christ, it's the End Times.

Yes, Meet the Fockers is the highest grossing comedy of all-time. Proving that if you put a naughty-sounding word in the title you'll have a big hit.

This is the reason why I want to make a film called "Hey You Son of a Betch! Feck Your Mama!!" It'd be huge!

Meet the Fockers has that due to international numbers and the international following of hoffman, deniro and streisand. I bet if you take away the international and go with just domestic gross, you have a different outcome.
