Weekend Box Office Results Are Surprising

There are many movies out in theaters right now; Eagle Eye, An American Carol, Flash of Genius, How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, Igor, Fireproof, My Best Friend's Girl, Righteous Kill, Ghost Town... The list goes on and on. There are popular movies, funny movies, sad movies, successful movies, truly great movies, and, well, terrible movies. Now, out of all these movies out in theaters, guess what is at the top of this weekend's box office list?

That's right, Beverly Hills Chihuahua! The movie that everybody thought was a joke. A movie that uses cute animals, pathetic jokes, and its star power to get people into theaters. And, apparently its working. Now, I haven't actually seen the movie yet, but judging by its 44% (which is honestly more than I was expecting) on Rotten Tomatoes, it can't be too fantastic. Beverly Hills Chihuahua was #1 at $29,000,000, and Eagle Eye came in second at about half what Beverly Hills Chihuahua made.
