      "Crazy,Stupid,Love" was a great comedy flick, great cast and acting.

      "Cowboys and Aliens" it was an alright film, not Favreau's best film.

          @bawnian-dexeus Ugh. This just as shocking as when Hop and Alvin and the Chipmunks both did amazingly. I should learn by now to overguess with these movies.

                @bawnian-dexeus I saw it was pretty good not offensive or annoying. Yes they did use Smurf puns like not that much like a minimum

                  @moviegeek Only by a million, but yeah, didn't think it would actually take 1st place....least the west didn't need 3D to get to second place

                        @monkeyiron2-0 nooooo. Not this page. I'm talking about the early numbers from other sites showing that The Smurfs won the weekend. I only posted my rant on this page because the topic was related and I needed somewhere to vent:

                          No @moviegeek it's the predictions...it's just showing what they think how much the movie will earn remember they put Zookeeper as #2 in the predictions then in the real box office result it was #3 and when scott pilgrim was suppose 2 be #2 but harshly a #7

                                      I'm seeing: "Cowboys & Aliens" on Sun 07/31...I can wait a few days til the hype dies down...Can''t wait to see!

                                      I saw "Crazy, Stupid, Love" last night, Great cast...Julianne Moore rocks!.... Not a great film, not an ok film either, "Crazy, Stupid, Love" is a good film. A points the film feels a tad to long......some clunky story-telling.......My Final Rating: C+.

                                          @cupid I loved DOTM also but it doesn't hold a candle to Captain America.
