I'm kinda bummed Confessions isn't doing better, but perhaps that just means we'll see the DVD sooner. Glad that Recruit opened ahead of the other two releases. Pacino's first #1 opener since Any Given Sunday. Whoa.

That is exactly what I thought. This is a great film, that many people are missing.

I believe that the studio should have released this early in December, rather than the last day of, and I bet anything it would have gotten more attention (by the public and awards shows)

But I am glad that The Recruit beat out FD2 and Biker Boyz.

I knew it'd be a toss-up between this and FD2. Haven't seen FD2, but impressed with The Recruit's $16M take...Pacino movies don't make that much anymore.

why are you so surprised that Biker Boyz did so well? More than half the people in America are stupid... its a new movie that just opened, of course people will see it.

sad, but its the way it is.
