It seems it's harder to overthrow giant robots than the Transformers franchise would have you think. Autobots or Deceptacons, it doesn't matter when the two team up to take over the box office for a second week in a row.
Still, Horrible Bosses held its own in the box office. Although it trailer behind the blockbuster, it managed to take the number two spot in this weekend's Box Office Challenge.
Kevin James's turn as a zookeeper who can talk to animals was about as fresh as... well, most Kevin james efforts. It debuted at number three, but I don't expect it to climb the charts any higher after its opening weekend.
Cars 2 couldn't keep up with another family-friendly entry, causing the Pixar pic to drop down to number four, with only Bad Teacher trailing behind it.
Calhoun Kersten vs. Aaron Ruffcorn
Each weekend Kersten and Ruffcorn go head to head in the Box Office Challenge, trying to pick the correct Number One film in America and how much money it will make.
This weekend ... Ruffcorn Wins!
Season record: 6-6
Thoughts by TSR: It was a close one this week, but with no reward for "eh, close enough" I humbly admit defeat. It continues to be a close call between Kersten and Ruffcorn in yet another round of Box Office Challenge.
