I expected Never Say Never to do better. I'm glad Unknown is #1 since I like Liam.

I can't believe Martin Lawrence snagged 17 million for that horrible movie.

I cant stand his movies like that at all. Then add Tylor Perry's not funny comedies to the mix and im confused as hell on how they make any money....

Im not entirely suprised. I thought I am number four had a bigger chance to be number one though. When I went the theater was packed, but it was also in a smaller theater so Unknown could of had more people in it.

Lets see how they survive a second week.

Big Mamma's House is probably going to drop 75% during the second weekend.

If not then people have horrible taste in movies.

They always die off fast. I dont even know where the audience comes from. Back when TDK released and one of those came out, it still had a line of people. I can honestly sit through those films and not laugh a single time....

He used to be funny with Will Smith in Bad Boys, and now all he does is make that goofy face or pretend to be a woman.

I knew Unknown would win. But, it fell to Hall Pass now.
