“Barbie” Falls 12% on Wednesday to a Mere $23 Million as Audiences Toy with Box Office Numbers


The doll fans just keep coming.

On Wednesday, “Barbie” fell 12 % , which is nothing really. The total came to $23 million.

Maybe the fans are just toying with us. or waiting to return today to soak up the air conditioning. In any case, Barbie and Ken are zooming toward $300 million.

In other news, the Indigo Girls 1986 hit “Closer to Fine” is getting some action on iTunes and streaming. Barbie sings along to the breezy harmonic folk song while she’s escaping in her convertible from Barbie Land.

I saw the Indigo Girls perform at the Beacon Theater back then, and just like with Sinead O’Connor, the fans were so excited they were falling out of the balconies. Maybe it’s time for a comeback show.
