Weekend Box Office Recap

"Salt" didnt quite have enough to beat "Inception" at the box office this weekend. The newcomer made $36 million to land in 2nd place, behind DeCaprio and company's $43.5 million take.

The biggest loser of the weekend appears to be "Predators" which continues to flop around like a dying fish. It fell 59.3% from its previous weekend to just barely hang in the top ten.

I saw Grown Ups and it was fun...but nothing special. As in it was just like watching a weird group of friends out having a fun time at the cabin. Not seeing an actual story. Had it not been Adam Sandler then the film wouldn't have done as good. He's name is what people bought a ticket to see more than the story.

Then again why didn't that work for Funny People? Cause it was a tad too serious.
