Superbad is Good at the Box Office … Again

You can’t keep horny kids down is the lesson of the day — or make that, the last two weeks, as the Judd Apatow-produced “Superbad”, a High School comedy about three horny best friends, took the top spot at the box office for the second straight week. In their second outing, the “Superbad” kids pulled in $18 million, good enough for first place. The comedy beat out “The Bourne Ultimatum”, which continues its strong run at the box office, taking $12 million in its fourth week for a total of $185 million domestically. Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker’s “Rush Hour 3” lands at #3 with just a little less than “Ultimatum’s” $12 million, while “Mr. Bean’s Holiday” opened strong (at least for a British movie about a British comedian) at #4 with $10 in its debut weekend. Meanwhile, the Jet Li/Jason Statham actioner “War” barely scraped $10 million in its debut, and rounding out the Top 5.
