M:i:III and a Faulty Comparison

May 14, 2006

The opening-day revenues for "Mission Impossible:III" were less than "Mission Impossible:II."

This sentence is incorrect because it contains a faulty comparison. What is being compared in this sentence? Revenues are compared to a movie; this is not logical. Revenues should be compared to revenues. Revise the sentence so that the comparison makes sense:

The opening-day revenues for "Mission Impossible:III" were less than the debut revenues for "Mission Impossible:II."
