Sometimes, it’s really hard to be the one who has to compile these results each week, as no matter how much I want to ignore the results sometimes, there’s no way to avoid them. So when a movie like Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Big Happy Family makes more money than a movie like Water for Elephants (which wasn’t even that good), it’s easy to fall into a state of dumbfounded silence. Even worse is when something like African Cats doesn’t make any money. Expected? Yes. Depressing? Yes.
So, while Rio is still out in front, there’s not a lot to be happy about this week. I have little to say. Better days are on the way, friends. Better days are on the way.
