New York, (ANI): Jennifer Aniston has been heavily criticized after her latest film The Bounty Hunter bombed at the box office. The actress" heavily promoted romantic comedy with Gerard Butler has pulled in just 38.4 million dollars domestically in its first 10 days of release.
The former 'Friends" star"s Love Happens, another romantic comedy with Aaron Eckhart, grossed 22.9 million dollars in the US – which was still way ahead of Management with Steve Zahn, which grossed just 935,000 dollars.
"Aniston just can't play the good friend anymore. She's aged out, no matter the yoga and the highlights. She just can't do America''s sweetheart next door. She needs a big wake-up call," the New York Post quoted one film critic as saying. "And as for her taste in men, it's totally off. John Mayer? Gerard Butler? She's missing a common-sense gene," the critic added.
One movie producer said: "It's hard for any TV stars to make the transition to movies. Certainly no one else from 'Friends' made it."
