Weekend Box Office #89
Still swamped with work, which is good, because the economy sucks.
This weekend, two comedies are pitted against each other. Neither got very good reviews from today's LA Times, though. I have higher hopes for GET SMART than I do for THE LOVE GURU, which honestly just seems dumb; it might be funny, but the commercials certainly aren't convincing me.
If anyone sees either movie this weekend, pop back in and leave a comment about whether it's worth seeing. Though with temperatures around 105 here today, the air conditioning alone might make it worth it.
GET SMART (3911 theaters). This at least looks actiony, while I generally like Steve Carell, and the former Rock should also bring people in. $45.5 million for the weekend.
THE LOVE GURU (3012 theaters). Mike Myers can often make me laugh, but still... $17.8 million.
