U Me Aur Hum, Ajay Devgan’s ugly copy of the fine Hollywood flick The Notebook, has crashed at the U.S. box office in its second week (Please click here for U Me Aur Hum opening weekend gross collection data.)

For the April 18-20 weekend, gross collections for U Me Aur Hum fell 73.3% to $171,503.

Besides starring in U Me Aur Hum, Ajay Devgan also directed and produced this mediocre movie.

In the overall ranking at the U.S. box office, U Me Aur Hum slipped to #29 for the second weekend from #19 for the opening weekend. Total gross for U Me Aur Hum amounted to $903,680.

Overall, U Me Aur Hum has not fared well at the U.S. box office compared to some recent Bollywood films. Neither has Krazzy 4, which has done much worse.

Eros was the distributor for both U Me Aur Hum and Krazzy 4 in the U.S.

Penis Diet is actually what two U.S. doctors have come up with for men who are not quite convinced that drugs like Viagra are the best way to achieve an erection.

Penis Diet is also the name of a 75-page book co-authored by the two doctors Damon Z. Cozamanis, D.C. and Marc D. Grobman, D.O., F.A.C.P.

Since we were utterly flummoxed by the Penis Diet, we called one of the authors of the book Dr.Grobman and interviewed him about this new Diet.

According to Dr.Grobman, the Penis Diet Continue reading »
