Weekend Box Office Recap



The Summer movie season is officially over and this weekend proves that point perfectly.

Despite falling 54% from its opening bow "The Final Destination" still managed to take the top spot for a second weekend in a row. Not bad for a movie that's running at 28% fresh at Rotten Tomatoes.

OK, according to most people who see it, the movie sucks. So why is it number 1 for the second week?

Because its competition sucks even worse.

"All About Steve" didn't get a lot of love from critics and consumers alike. Stephanie Zacharek from Salon summed it up by calling it: "A romantic comedy so lunkheaded and ill-conceived that it makes your average, idiotic Kate Hudson-Matthew McConaughey outing look like the reincarnation of Hepburn and Grant. "

From the consensus of reviews, I think we may have a winner for the worst film of 2009. Razzie folks, are you listening? Of course you are.
