Alright, now let's get to rumors, what are we talking about? The worst movie? - Listen up! This just in. The rumor report, with Angela Yee. - Well, some people might have had high hopes for this movie, but it did terribly, it was Universal's Jem and the Holograms. A movie version of the late 1980s cartoon. - Never heard about that. - Didn't hear about that either. - Yeah, well, clearly it didn't so well, it came out October 23rd, it opened in wide release. - What the hell is Jem and the Holograms? - You never heard of Jem? Jem, it's a girls' cartoon. - Never heard of them. - Me neither. - I heard of power puff girls. - Jem and the Holograms, if you look on Revolt TV you can see some pictures from it, she was a superhero, no that's Jem and the Holograms. - Oh, they come on Disney or Nick? - It used to be on TV, it was like an old school cartoon. - Oh, my kids don't know that. Never heard of them. - Yeah, she had this other band of girls, they were archenemies, the misfits. Anyway, that movie did so poorly they actually pulled it out of theaters after only two weeks. Alright it didn't help that the movie got a 20 percent rating for reviews and in the opening week, guess how much it made? - How much? - It made 1.3 million dollars on 2400 screens. It looks very white, like really hey, Becky, oh my god, you going to the valley today white, that kind of white. - That's a black girl right there. Is that a black girl? It didn't do so well. So there you have it. - No, she wasn't black. Sorry. - I had high hopes for Jem and Holograms. Oh, all those girls will be strippers. - She's not a stripper you ass!
