Ridley Scott’s “House of Gucci” had an unimpressive third place box office debut on what was frankly an unimpressive Thanksgiving weekend. A week has passed, I’ve already reviewed “Encanto” at No. 1 and “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” at No. 2, and no studio wants to open anything new in the notoriously abysmal first weekend in December. So the still No. 3 “House of Gucci” is up for review. Is it as unimpressive as its numbers? In a way, it is. The film is nearly three hours long and didn’t knock my socks off, so disappointment is bound to play a role in my opinion. But at the same time, I can’t say that it’s some sort of spectacular flop, or even a flop at all, really.
