It's almost like those shirts that say, "I'm Huge In Japan." Jessica Simpson's latest movie, Blonde Ambition, is the number one flick in the Ukraine, grossing just $253,008 for this past weekend, according to Box Office Mojo.
Just a reminder, back in the states, the movie had a run in eight Texas theaters, grossing just $1,771 in its opening weekend. The Box Office Mojo editor in chief says "The former Soviet nations have a sweet tooth for straight-up comedies. When these comedies have big name celebrities like Jessica Simpson's, that's all that's needed to sell the movie. Russian and Ukrainian audiences have an even bigger urge for escapism than Americans." Escapism. Riiiiiiight.
