A Grandpa Defies Gravity

Four times a charm, apparently, as Johnny Knoxville’s “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa” behaving badly but amusingly for the movie-going majority, as he conned and connived his way to the #1 spot at the domestic box office this weekend with $32 million. “Gravity” lost a bit of its view of the stars thanks to the aged behaving appallingly, yet perched high above the rest of the competition at the spacious #2 place with $20.3 million.“Captain Phillips” once again did his heroic part to save moviegoers from lackluster films, this week from the #3 spot with $11.8 million.
“The Counselor” and his star-powered cohorts held court of sorts at the legal land of #4 with $8 million. Hollywood skies continued to appear “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2” enormous for just a snack as they satisfied moviegoers from the #5 spot with $6.1 million.
Legalities aside, it was a fun-filled weekend at our movie theaters, where we traveled blissfully through space, sailed with heroic grace, franchises found a lucrative place to land and behaving badly was just plain grand! The friendliest of food fell from the biggest clouds; clearly, entertainment knows no bounds (or age restrictions).
From seaside days to starry nights, the week ahead promises fun of the legal kind for Halloween lovers, hero worshipers and movie addicts of all ages…
