Well, how about that. “That’s My Boy” — generally agreed to be the worst thing Adam Sandler has made since, at least, “Just Go with It” — effectively tanked over the weekend, coming in fifth with a measly gross of $13 million.
(That figure would have been a great haul for, say, “Moonrise Kingdom“, which took in $2.8 million in limited release to place ninth, but with Sandler’s history of box-office smashes, anything under $25 million is a humiliating defeat.)
Last week’s top two films, “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” and “Prometheus“, earned $35.5 million and $20.2 million, respectively, staying fixed at the top of the chart. Adam Shankman’s musical “Rock of Ages” opened in third with $15.1 million, and you can bet Tom Cruise is scratching his head, staring into his diamond-encrusted mirror, wondering why his fans didn’t show up to see him play a preposterously ripped version of Axl Rose.
Yes. I wonder, too.
