I can't believe Torque finished anywhere near LOTR. That's an insult. We already had a Fast & the Furious with bikes. It was called Biker Boyz. It also sucked.

Well, there is no question as to what was number one this weekend, but what is questioned is who will really place in second, third, and fourth when actual numbers come out Monday because what we have again is another close race between three movies.
First up, Along Came Polly did come in first like I knew it would with a commanding $27.6 million to mixed reviews.
Now where the questions are raised start again with Big Fish. Big Fish came in second place with $10.4 million and a $37.9 million total.
Opening up in third place was Torque with $10.27 million and following very close in fourth place was Return of the King with $10.2 million, bringing it's total to $326.7 million and sending it pass Fellowship of the Ring's final gross of $314 million! So tomorrow's numbers should be interesting.
Rounding out the top 5 is Cheaper by the Dozen with $8.7 million and a $111.9 million total.
Also opening up this weekend was Disney's Teacher's Pet. It placed thirteenth with $2.3 million.
Somethings Gotta Give crossed the $100 million mark this weekend as well as The Last Samurai.
Calendar Girls moved up 2 spaces into tenth place this weekend with $3.1 million and a $17.2 million total.
Opening up next weekend are two new movies. The Butterfly Effect with That 70's Show's Ashton Kutcher and Win a Date with Tad Hamilton with other That 70's Show star Topher Grace, from NBC's new Las Vegas show Josh Duhamel, and Kate Bosworth.
Here are your numbers...
1) Along Came Polly- $27,600,000 ($27,600,000) NEW!!!

While I'm not surprised that ROTK isn't in first anymore, I am surprised Along Came Polly was first (I'm sorry, it just looks horrible to me). That and Torque. Hasn't this one been done to death already, and it still beats ROTK? That does surprise me.
Hold on a second. Torque actually did well enough to have fininshed above LOTR Not to mention that garbage like Along Came Polly robbed Big Fish of its rightful spot in first place after LOTR.
I can not believe what some people will watch.....
"To be upset over what you don't have is to waste what you do have."
I'm also surprised that Along Came Polly and Torque came in those spots.
Torque looks like a ripoff of the Fast and the Furious movies, and Along Came Polly looks just stupid.
Too bad for LOTR.
God damn, ROTK has been out for a month now, you can't except it to beat every newly released movie (no matter how crap its). I mean Torque only beat ROTK by a couple of thousand. If anything 10 mil for a movie like Torque is pretty bad.Originally Posted by purplehairedwonder
Along Came Polly opened well above expectations. More proof that Jennifer Aniston will have a career after "Friends."
Big Fish, and LOTR are still doing well.
But I was surprised that Teacher's Pet opened out of the top 10, despite critical praise.
WTF is Along came Polly? And the Fast and Furious wannabe movie did good?
Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing the Butterly Effect on Sat.
I'm not surprised that Teacher's Pet flopped.
The show wasn't even popular.
What did Disney think that the movie would be?
Once again, the numbers don't surprise me one bit.

one would almost believe that the return of the king would have dethroned titanic as all time box office champ had it only had a much stronger a showing this week..
i guess not even gollum's evil could beat off a lot of northern snowstorms. or for that matter, a lot of high gas prices cutting into movie budgets.
is it too late to send gollum to saudi arabia, so he can annex it, end religious-driven sexism and bigotry, and price gouging forever!?!?
Dude, there are better ways to phrase the question. Go check out a movie site, they're all over the place. Here, I'll even direct you to one:Originally Posted by Dr Kain
We had this discussion in another thread. Dr Kain is usually not in touch with the mainstream on movies in that doesn't know what they are. I am surprised Torque opened so well but I'm expecting it to drop off next week. I like Martin Henderson since I'm a "Ring" fan.Originally Posted by Failure
Anyhow, I too am looking forward to the Butterfly Effect. From the reports of the people who have actually seen it, it's nothing like the trailer and Ashton Kucher can actually act!
Don't look at this space.
Um Ashton is not going to be in the New Batman Movie that Rumor was dead a long time ago!

Numbers aren't surprising at all. Return of the King has been out for over a month now, it was expected that it would lose the top spot, no matter how bad or good the movie is.
Roc'n the mic.
Along Came Polly knocks RotK out of the top spot. Once again, I fear for the species. Like I posted a long time ago (about Duplex), this film falls into the unfortunately growing genre of "Ben Stiller as a nice guy visited by ludicrous amounts of would-be comic hardships that might seem funny to most people (read: idiots) but are simply uncomfortable to me" movies. May God help us all.
On a brighter note, here's hoping The Butterfly Effect makes mad B.O. next week. Can't wait to see it.
I feel that a big problem with today's society is that we don't listen to our fellow man -- especially when I'm talking.

That's coming out already? The trailer had me interested, but it sounds like it might be worth going to see.Originally Posted by SSJPabs
That's not what I was saying. I'm not surprised ROTK is out of the first spot, but I was surprised that it was Along Came Polly that got first. That movie just looks lame. And Torque, well to each his own, I guess...God damn, ROTK has been out for a month now, you can't except it to beat every newly released movie (no matter how crap its). I mean Torque only beat ROTK by a couple of thousand. If anything 10 mil for a movie like Torque is pretty bad.
I remembered what it was a little while ago, and I can't believe it did that well. I hate Ben Stiller. I do not find him funny at all. OH god, don't get me started on "There's Something About Mary."Originally Posted by Failure
Doesn't Mindhunters come out this week to?
