Saying Heath Ledger died (or Morgan Freeman was in a terrible car accident) because of a movie they starred in, is an insult to both of them, and a highly whacked-out and inaccurate one at that. Try explaining your "curse theory" to their families.

And what about that ghost boy who appears in one scene in Three Men and a Baby? How do you explain that? Is a haunted movie the same as a cursed movie? Makes you think ...

People are not the general public? ;\-\) Interesting notion.

Regardless, whether the general public thinks the movie has a curse or the majority of readers here do, there simply aren't such things. That's why I posted to the reply I did, to try to nip this silly thread in the bud.

How about we talk about Ledger's incredible performance instead? You know, something about the actual movie? \:\-\)
