from justin to kellyFox rushed this much ridiculed disaster into production for $12m, riding the hype of their television success American Idol.  Director Robert Iscove, who made She’s All That for Miramax was publicly upset after the Weinsteins passed him over for Chicago and the poor fella ended up with this third rate musical.  Fox opened From Justin to Kelly in 2,001 theaters, where it placed #11 for the weekend with an awful $2,715,848.  Audiences gave the film a C+ cinemascore and it fell a whopping 77% the following weekend to $625,469 and quickly disappeared from theaters with $4,928,883.  Fox upset theater chains by rushing the film onto DVD a little over a month after it opened in theaters.  From Justin To Kelly went straight to video overseas.
