| Filed under: Film FlickersNeil Patrick HarrisRyan GoslingSteve CarellBusiness BlitzDaniel Craig


These two movies couldn't be any more different.

Yet they're both fighting for the first place spot at the box office this weekend.

Cowboys & Aliens and The Smurfs both grossed $36.2 million each over the past three days.

While Cowboys received generally favorable reviews, Smurfs was panned by critics. Luckily for them, kids aren't too picky.

The other new release this weekend, Crazy, Stupid, Love, starring Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling, opened in fifth place, with a slightly better debut last week's adult comedy Friends with Benefits.

As for the weekend's top five, here is the complete list:

1. (tie) Cowboys & Aliens — $36.2 mil
1. (tie) The Smurfs — $36.2 mil
3. Captain America: The First Avenger — $24.9 mil

    I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, BidsOut.com

    No surprise. Smurfs is the only new, G Rated, summer, family offering right now. Of course it would do well, despite the critics (who always seem to hate any kids flick that isnt from Disney)

    Just saw Cowboys and Aliens. Very cool.

    I hope Crazy, Stupid Love tanks. The title alone makes me want to puke.

    Well, if you need to put thinly vailed adult humor into a "Family Friendly" movie, like the Smurfs, in order to make it half-way interesting for the current generation's kiddies, than what's the point? "Go Smurf Yourself", "What the Smurf!?", "I just Smurfed my Paints!". Fuck that. (I mean "Smurf that").

    Saw Cowboys/Aliens today. Good movie if you like cowboys beating the crap out of each other & aliens eating people. I give it a 6. Hubby gives it a 9. Guess people let go of the idea that the Smurfs are demonic (1980's).

    Perez, I don't know what you're talking about… Cowboys & Aliens did not get generally favorable reviews. Only 43% of the critics liked it. Last time I checked 43 was less than 50. Why all the digs at The Smurfs?
