    You got to be kidding, this movie is going to lose Disney over $100 million. After production costs and promotion, this film costs north of $250 and probably more after Disney kept it in theaters long past its shelf life and continued to promote it though the movie chains could have filled more seats with a new movie. They just wanted to be able to say it made the $100 mil to save face for Ava and Oprah and the press could hype it , though they know it’s a misleading celebration.
