Valentine's Day Is No. 1 at the Box Office for a Record-Breaking President's Day Weekend

Box Office: Valentine's Day Charms Its Way to No. 1

Audiences are smitten with Valentine's Day. Lackluster reviews couldn't stop the A-list rom-com from placing in the top spot at the box office with an intake of $52.4 million.

Other openers Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief and The Wolfman earned second and third place with $31.1 million and $30.6 million respectively, making this weekend the highest grossing President's Day tally to date.

Avatar and Dear John continued to cling to spots in the top five. James Cameron claimed another $22 million for his pet project for No. 4, while the Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried vehicle took a significant 50 percent hit, bringing in $15 million for No. 5.

I usually don't get into romantic comedies, but I thought it was cute too. Bradley Cooper made me smile, [to me] that was so cute and unexpected ;)

i have to say that if i had relied on the reviews for my weekend's movie choice - i wouldn't have seen v-day and i would have missed out. i'm glad that it did well.
