Box Office: Superbad Has Super Staying Power

Teen raunch comedy Superbad continued to get tons of McLovin from audiences this weekend as it reigned at the box office for the second weekend in a row. Overall, this weekend's box office sales were somewhat unusual, with older movies taking the top three slots before the new releases. The Bourne Ultimatum came in second place — a nice accomplishment in the movie's third weekend in theaters — while Rush Hour 3 stayed strong at No. 3.

Mr. Bean's Holiday came in just slightly ahead of Jet Li's action flick War, the two films taking fourth and fifth places respectively. Meanwhile, The Nanny Diaries opened at No. 6 in the box office lineup, raking in just $7.8 million.

Superbad actually has a chance of taking the top slot a third weekend in a row this upcoming holiday weekend. The only real competition comes from Rob Zombie's Halloween and the bumbling comedy Balls of Fury. My money's on McLovin and Co.

Don't bother seeing Balls of Fury... I fell asleep during it. It was very predictable and boring.

I saw Superbad this past weekend... and McLovin and his buddies, the Cops, were the funniest part of the movie. I am sure the police unions are not pleased with the portrayal of the Police in this movie... haha! And the artistic drawings of penis' were brilliant...

I saw it this weekend. It was very funny. Normally I don't see rauncy high school type movies in the theatre but I have such a soft spot in my heart for George Michael Bluth (Michael Cera) that I had to give my ten bucks to support his career. Also the teenage actresses in this movie are adorable...but not super skinny skanky looking starlet wannabees. They look more like girls you might actually see in a high school.

I haven't seen it yet, but I am dying to. I can tell it's going to be ridiculously awesome just from the uncensored trailer.

Does Superbad live up to its hype? I have an abhorrence for things everyone says is a "must see" (lol) so I'm skeptical about the movie and have yet to see Knocked Up.
