    I have, as well as millions of others, made it a POINT to NEVER, EVER PAY TO SEE OR OWN ANY MOVIE/BOOK etc. that prominently excuses an ADMITTED SERIAL PEDOPHILE RAPIST ! The ONE THING HOLLYWOOD hates is MONEY LOSERS (like most of Polanski’s movies really). Ghost Writer lost someone tens of millions of dollars.

    Hey Max, you DO know that the United States isn’t the Only Country in existence, right? There is EUROPE….ASIA…. and so forth. Remember them? They actually bring in the Euro aka PROFIT(Big-Time) to that piece of garbage.

    I may dislike the guy but even I’m not ignorant enough to have your viewpoint as if the U.S. was the Center of the freakin’ universe.
