Mediocrity was the name of the game this week, at least according to Bayer. None of the movies that made the top five seemed to do much for the critics here at TSR, but that didn't seem to stop audiences. Megamind led the box office favorites with a pretty impressive haul.
Todd Phillips' Due Date didn't do too shabby either, coming in second place. The unlikely duo/ road trip comedy hasn't really wowed critics, but it's not about pleasing the critics, is it? It made enough money to secure itself another week or two on the top five, at least.
Tyler Perry's foray into the ensemble drama with For Colored Girls is doing pretty well for itself, given its theater count. As Allen said in this week's box office preview, never underestimate the power of Perry.
In fourth, Bruce Willis is still kickin' ass and takin' names with RED.
But Saw 3D is hurting the most this weekend, with its fall from grace. The number one last weekend has fallen into last place. That's gotta hurt more than one of Jigsaw's Rube Goldberg machines of death. Still, you won't see me weeping.
