It was a family affair this weekend.

Zack Snyder's much-hyped, but critically panned film, Sucker Punch, had a weak opening weekend, bringing in a total of $20 million.

Warner Bros. had "spent a fortune pumping it up" since the film was rumored to cost around $100 million to make.

Yikes!

Meanwhile, The Wimpy Kid franchise is proving to be a hit.

The family-friendly sequel, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, took the number one spot at the box office, with $24 million.

The film only cost $21 million to make, which is pretty impressive. In fact, with the film's success, a script for a third Wimpy Kid is already in the works.

Bradley Cooper's Limitless came in third place with $15 million while Matthew McConaughey's The Lincoln Lawyer took the fourth place spot with $10.5 million.

Johnny Depp's animated feature, Rango, was still going strong, staying in the top five with $10 million. The film has made a cumulative $106.5 million so far. Wowsa!

So, what did U see this weekend??

    Re: Queen Bee 36 – Yea, it was pretty confusing and sad.
    I thought it would pump up "girl power" and independence, but it was just sad :-(

    Diary of the wimp is always a safe bet that it would be funny.
