Mark Wahlberg’s Attempts at Serious Roles Flops Again: “Father Stu” 2nd Bust in a Row


Maybe Mark Wahlberg should forget the serious acting roles.

His “Father Stu” brought in $5.7 million over the weekend. Coupled with mid week shows, “Father Stu” had the second lowest opening weekend of Wahlberg’s career.

It’s also his second bust in a row after the lowest opener on his resume, “Joe Bell.”

All together, “Father Stu” has $8 million to its name and not a very rosy future.

Even on Easter week, no one wanted to see it. And Wahlberg should be well aware now that no one wanted to see Mel Gibson either.

I’m sure Sony learned its lesson. Gibson will never become part of the Spiderverse either.
