Michael Clayton didn't fare as well as Married, even though it opened in five hundred more theaters. The folks at Warner Brothers thought they had a sure fire hit on their hands after last week's limited run sold a ton of tickets. Sadly, the film couldn't live up to that hype with its wider theatrical roll out. The film fell into third place with $11 million. The Rock's The Game Plan managed to hold steady in the second place spot with $11.5 million.
A number of smaller films played to limited capacity. The Sean Astin baseball biopic The Final Season did okay business opening at number twenty with $665,000 playing on 1,011 screens. Lars and the Real Girl nabbed $85,000 playing on only seven screens. While Control surprised everyone by taking in $27,000 at just one theater.Read More

I first came across Tyler Perry late one Sunday afternoon after a hard night of dominating the Gin cabinet. Two other friends and I were sitting on the coffee bean covered floor of a small bug-infested hovel in Long Beach, California. We were laughing hysterically at the staged antics coming in via a bent TV antennae wrapped around and supported by a coat hanger. It was the live telecast of Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns. Which was being aired on the local bible channel for free. We found it funny because, a few short hours before passing out on a heap of shattered Christmas tree ornaments, we'd concocted a liquor drink we'd dubbed "On the Town Brown". Because of its hideous color.
Based on one of his live stage plays, Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married? explores that very question. A group of four couples meet in a mountain retreat only to find that they are harboring some of the deepest darkest secrets; and are keeping them from each other. Its funny, lively stuff that hit a strong chord with the viewing audience at my particular screening. The film is shaping up to be another gargantuan hit.Read More
