Angry, Old, Threatening Man Drama Somehow More Popular Than Miserable Comedy

January 12, 2009


The weekend box office totals, for your logbook:

1. Gran Torino - $29 million. That doesn't make any sense. So many people must have left the theater pissed that Gran Torino wasn't the one with feuding brides.

2. Bride Wars - $21.5 million. Is lady-quarreling losing its appeal?

3. The Unborn - $21.1 million. For a sequel, how about The Everborn? Some kind of disgusting freak that's perpetually being birthed. No?

4. Marley & Me - $11.4 million. Spoiler alert: the "me" in Marley & Me is all of us. Everyone loves Marley.

5. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button - $9.5 million, keeping the hope alive that this could still gross more than Bedtime Stories.
