        The only movie certified fresh on this list is Puss n' Boots. That's kinda sad lol

              I knew "Breaking Dawn (Part 1)" would take the #1 spot this weekend.

                Saw Breaking dawn with my wife, pretty decent compared to the last two movies, im just pissed that dam Sandler crap is still making money.

                    Saw Breaking Dawn, it was surprisingly good. Little disappointed in the box office since it earned less than projected.

                        @JessicaMonroe Do you honestly think "fangirls" care about the ratings on RT? I'm sure the majority of them don't even know it exists. They're seeing this movie regardless of the reviews

                            I'm actually fairly surprised it didn't pass New Moon. This is apparently the best in the series but I guess since it was only the first part it won't do nearly as good as Part 2. I mean, look at Deathly Hallows!

                              The Twilight movie only gets 27% on Rotten Tomatoes and these fangirls still line up the night before to get into these showings? What is the secret to this madness? I'd love to make that much money on something only 27% of people enjoy.

                                      @ejk1 True. I miss old Sandler myself. I want him to start working with the R-rating a bit more. Like, work in the Judd Apatow area of comedy. I'm tired of all the PG-13 fart comedies.
