Box Office: Hudson and McConaughey Strike Gold

The chemistry between Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey proved lucrative once again as their comedy, Fool's Gold, won the top spot at the box office over the weekend, earning $22 million. Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins, starring Martin Lawrence and Cedric the Entertainer, came in No. 2 grossing $17 million, followed by Disney's super tween 3-D concert experience Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour in the third spot.

Fans of Hudson and McConaughey seem like they're most in the mood for this duo around Valentine's Day as their previous rom-com How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days opened the same weekend in 2003 with similar box office results, Variety reports.

Oscar nominee Juno remained in the top 10 coming in fifth this week just behind Jessica Alba's thriller, The Eye. Katherine Heigl's 27 Dresses continued to draw fans coming in sixth place and There Will Be Blood came in at No. 10.

If you're still in the mood for love next weekend, there will be even more to choose from when Ryan Reynolds and super cutie Abigail Breslin hit the screen in Definitely, Maybe.

I cannot belive this movie did so well. I'm shocked that many people want to see it. It'll be interesting to see what it can do after the 1st weekend when public reviews get out. Regardless, I'll pass. At the very best, I might watch it with my sister when she rents it.

I think this movie looks so lame. I like Kate and I love Matthew, but it just looks silly and predictable.

i'm very happy that the movie got the #1 spot - i went to see it despite the reviews and it was cute. that's the best that you can hope for from these 2 and it translated well.

I do not understand why anyone would want to see this movie! Not trying to be rude to those who do, but I just don't get the appeal of it. (Beyond Matthew's great looks.)

I was watching the ebert and roeper show and they bagged on this movie SO hard. They basically said that watching the trailer for it was better than watching the movie and you pretty much get the whole movie there anyway. pass.
