Box Office: It Pays to Have a Game Plan

The Farrelly Brothers and Ben Stiller are left broken hearted today after their bawdy comedy The Heartbreak Kid failed to draw in the masses at the theaters. Taking home just $14 million its opening weekend, The Heartbreak Kid came in second place at the box office, behind the family friendly Game Plan starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. The Game Plan is enjoying its second weekend of being No. 1 at the box office after its successful opening weekend.

The Kingdom continued to do well with action flick fans, coming in third place with $9.3 million. Resident Evil: Extinction came in fourth place with newcomer The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising following up in No. 5. The George Clooney legal thriller Michael Clayton didn't thrill a whole lot of moviegoers; the movie came in twenty-first place with $704,000 for the weekend.

Heartbreak Kid looked very funny. Was going to see it this weekend, but made other plans. I can't believe that Rock movie was number 1...

We took the kids to see this Saturday, and I laughed and cried. It is a great movie. The Rock plays the perfect part!!!! He will melt your heart. Definately will buy this one, when it comes out!!! Highly recommend!!

I saw the Heartbreak Kid on opening night because I'd heard so many good reviews of it. I even got my husband to go to a movie IN THE THEATER. We were extremely disappointed. There were a few laugh out loud moments, but there were also lots of awkward sexual things that were more gross/disturbing than funny. The girl is way too much of a Cameron Diaz want-to-be. I heard the man behind me say, as the credits were rolling, "If I run across this on TV, I won't even stop to watch it." It was forgetable. I do love Jerry Stiller though!

I'm glad the Ben Stiller comedy bombed, maybe it'll knock some sense into him. As for Michael Clayton- didn't it only open on a small number of screens (like, 15, I think?), so understandably it didn't have a lot of bank this weekend. I think it'll definitely pick up once it's wider.
