I’m not surprised that a Tyler Perry movie did well at the box office. I’m not surprised it finished in first place. I wouldn’t even have been shocked with a haul of $30 or $35 million dollars. But $41 million dollars?

Well, you might say that we’re all “Fired Up” about this weekend’s movies at The Reject Report. Uh, no. Actually, this looks to be a down week, with only two major wide releases served up by the folks from MAXIM and, ahem, Tyler Perry.

Not only was Friday the 13th a hit, it was a big hit. $42 million smackeroos for Jason Voorhees and the rest of them. What’s more, this whole weekend is going to set a President’s Day weekend record!

I know some box-office pundits will say in their copy “audiences just aren’t that into The Pink Panther 2.” Are you kidding me? Audiences were more than “just” not into this movie — they were really in no mood to see it.

We have in store a humdrum weekend with three new movies rolling out: Taken, The Uninvited and New in Town. Still, the big question on everyone’s mind is whether any of these three will be able to stop the big, fat steamroller that is Paul Blart: Mall Cop.

I could probably give you a ten-point list of reasons why you should check out the upcoming suspense thriller Taken. Then again, all I really need is a clip from the film.

This week’s entry may not look look like a French film, but the movie bible (IMDB) says it is, so it is. It’s produced by a French man, directed by a French man, and released by a French production company.
