Happy Monday Everyone!!

Happy Comedy Box Office!

For your information pleasure I’ve analysed the US Box Office to see which comedies made the Top 20 over the Superbowl Weekend….some familiar names kept cropping up…see for yourself!

What did you see at the Weekend?

What did you see at the Weekend?

Number 6:

One For The Money

Despite the awful reviews Katherine Heigl’s new movie (based on the bestselling book of the same name) is performing considerably well with audiences. Debuting at number 3 last week and falling only three spots…watch this space!

Number 6 at the Box Office...!

Number 8:

The Descendants

With Clooney and an Oscar-winning director you’re pretty much guaranteed one thing: steady box-office returns. Holding in within the Top 10, Fox Searchlight must be rubbing their hands with glee: the Oscars are just a few weeks away and everyone knows that the race for Best Actor is George’s to lose!

George Clooney's The Descendants still in the Top 10!

George Clooney's The Descendants still in the Top 10!

Number 12:

The Artist

This film continues to defy expectations. It’s now coming into its eleventh week at the box office and yet it’s still steadily raking in the box office numbers. Harvey Weinstein, my hat goes off to you…brilliant work!

The Artist has grossed over $20 million in the US alone...!

Number 17:

Joyful Noise

With a rating of 4.7 on IMDB, it’s no surprise that Queen Latifah’s new film is rapidly falling out of the charts. When are producers going to learn that almost every film Queen Latifah agrees to work on turns out to be a complete stinker??

Queen Latifah's new movie may as well be called her new stinker....!

Number 19:

Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked

Still in the Top 20…and yep, it has grossed almost $130 million in the US alone……need I say more?

Grossed $130 million in the US alone...!

Grossed $130 million in the US alone...!
