Blades of Glory Skates Into No. 1

What good is a mindless Hollywood comedy if it doesn't win big at the box office? Fortunately, Blades of Glory didn't have to find out. Not surprisingly, the latest Will Ferrell movie, was No. 1 at the box office this weekend, Variety reports.
According to the weekend box-office estimates, the entertaining if somewhat idiotic men's figure-skating comedy took in $33 million in its opening weekend. (Be sure to check out my review.)

Coming in at second place was Disney's animated feature, Meet the Robinsons, which brought in $25 million. TMNT, last week's first-place finisher, was in the No. 4 spot, with 300 in third.

I didn't love Blades of Glory — sure, it made me laugh, but the script wasn't exactly groundbreaking or complex. However, I am glad to see Ferrell doing well for himself. Did you guys see any movies this weekend? If so, what do you think of the latest box-office news?

This weeks offerings at the movies answers the question, why no one goes to the movies anymore... Can't anyone make something decent without feeling the need to release it right before the Oscars so they have a better chance at a nom?

I thought this movie was very funny and entertaining. The outfits made me laugh the most. Especially Jon Heders every day outfits... the sparkly vests, fuzzy sweaters... it's not an oscar winner but fun for a good laugh!!

I am not a huge Will Ferrell fan, but this one looks hilarious to me. I will probably see this when it comes to my local theatre and drafthouse. I saw 300 this weekend. Fun for the men since it is all killing and stuff and fun for the ladies to see 300 sets of 6 pack abs. Gotta love what airbrushing and leather diapers can do for a man. ;)

This is on my to-see-this-week list. We saw the last local run of Zodiac instead. (Yeh, I'm way behind!)

i saw blades of glory and it was mindlessly delightful. there were some funny parts not ruined by commercials/trailers, but it was closer to Ricky Bobby than Old School.
