Wahlberg Feels No Payne at the Box Office

Mark Wahlberg had a good weekend. His movie Max Payne was No. 1 at the box office, with an estimated $18 million. Plus, it looks like he made nice with Andy Samberg, after things got tense last week.

Second place turned out to be what Variety calls a "photo finish" between those dancing dogs and The Secret Life of Bees. Disney's Beverly Hills Chihuahua just barely eked out a second place finish its third weekend in theaters with an estimated $11.2 million with Bees close behind with about $11.1 million.

Oliver Stone's biopic W also did well, coming in at No. 4 with an estimated $10.6 million its first weekend out followed by Eagle Eye at No. 5.

Max Payne was awful. Total waste of money. I didn't believe Mark Wahlberg. It all seemed too stiff and contrived. Usually i enjoy Mark Walhberg, but in this i felt absolutely no connection to the character he was playing. Yes, Max Payne should be icy and aloof, but this led to a minimal connection and no sympathy for him. I had my doubts going into a movie based on a video game. Unfortunately my doubts were correct. Minimal character development and weak plot brought down any major success with this film.

well i saw W. and i'm not surprised that it didn't do any better than 4..but i am surprised that BH and Bees did so well...i like the story behind bees - but i didn't know if it would be one of those movies to really resonate as strongly with the masses, but i guess it did huh?
