From boxofficemojo.com, this affects the 3-day count. The number posted above are the 5-day.

NOTE: Universal revised their Sunday projections later in the morning -- moving 'Cat in the Hat' up from $24.720M to $25.555M (and to No. 1) and 'Love Actually' up from $7.800M to $8.189M.

Well, Master & Commander is the only one I'm interested in on the entire list...but god, look at those top three films. Now I know what my parents meant when they told me as a kid that they don't make any good movies anymore...I've finally caught up to the curve! Were kids movies in the 80's just as bad as these, but I was too young to realize it?

I think kid's movies were just as bad if not worse in the 80's. Reccently I caught a bit of Pete's Dragon on TV. I had to shut it off out of embarassment.

I could be wrong about this, but I think that fewer movies were recieving the R-rating back then. ET, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Ghostbusters, Back to the Future ect... they may all have been rated PG, but they weren't 'kid's movies', they were movies for everyone. I think today the general consensus is 'if it's rated PG it's a kiddie movie'. Be honest, if Matrix Part 2, if it had been rated PG, wouldn't your first thought have been 'they turned it into a kid's movie!'?

But that's a 70's movie


Pete's Dragon was released in 1977

To be fair, Elf is getting excellent reviews, from critics and audiences alike. The other two films are, uh, not fairing quite as well.

I saw Elf yesterday. It was OK, funny in some parts, but not quite the slapstick Will Ferrell funny I was expecting. Bad Santa is still one of the best flicks I've seen this year and probably in the past few years.
