Weekend B.O. March 22-24 (And The Mystery That Is Tina Fey)


No surprise, The

Croods took the number one slot this week, which is good news for DreamWorks, which hasn’t had much box office success with their animated films lately, such as

their disappointing Rise of the



Fuqua’s Olympus Has Fallen did much better than expected, with $30 million. How this

will affect the other “Die Hard in the White House” movie, White

House Down, with Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum, which comes out in three

months, we will have to wait and see.

However the new comedy release, Admission, with Paul Rudd and Tina Fey, tanked. And, can I say that Fey is, to me, one of the most over-rated entertainers ever. ”She’s

incredible! She’s smart! She’s a woman! And she wears glasses!” Like what’s the big deal with her? I can’t be the only one who feels the same


O.K. her Sarah Palin

impersonation is funny, but what else am I missing here? I guess the b.o. result for

her film shows that not everyone is so in love with her.

Halle Berry’s The Call took a dip, but held on to fourth place, and, at this stage, looks like it’s headed for a solid $45-50 million box office total, which is a solid return on the film’s very modest $13 million production budget.
