‘Cars 2′ Is Number One At The Box Office, But I Had To See ‘Mr. Popper’s Peguins’ Instead [VIDEO]

One of the great things about having a young son, is the ability to see kids movies.  I mean sure I could watch it alone when it comes out on HBO on Demand on Suddenlink in a few months, but I really wanted to see this at Carmike Cinemas in the Lufkin Mall this weekend for opening weekend.   I mean Rolling Stone gave it 3 and a half stars.  That’s high praise for those guys!  It was all set and then my kid pulls an audible.  He would rather see Mr. Poppers Penguins.  I would have rather not.  Yet now I can say I have seen Mr.Poppers Penguins.   Very strange movie.  And somehow Jim Carey worked in a Jimmy Stewart reference.  Does anyone even know who that guy is anymore.   I guess there is always next week.  I will see this movie in 3D at the theater somehow.

Here are the top 10 movies from Friday through Sunday, with estimated ticket sales:

(notice how many people  got duped by their kids to see Mr. Poppers Penguins, I don’t feel so bad now)

1. Cars 2, $68 million.
2. Bad Teacher, $31 million.
3. Green Lantern, $18.4 million.
4. Super 8, $12.1 million.
5. Mr. Popper’s Penguins, $10.3 million.
6. X-Men: First Class, $6.6 million.
7. The Hangover Part II, $5.9 million.
8. Bridesmaids, $5.4 million.
9. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, $4.7 million.
10. Midnight in Paris, $4.5 million.
