Still-hot (in her own way) “Tammy” trailed behind the primate pack and the mechanical members to the #3 location with $12.9 million.
The cast of “22 Jump Street” made a starry appearance on the corner of #4, collecting $6.7 million. The moviegoers conducting the cinematic seminar on “How to Train Your Dragon 2” succeed (without really trying) fell to the stomping grounds of #5 with $5.9 million.

The Planet of Primates and Partiers

Will it be the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” or the descent of planetary primates this weekend in our earthly land of make believe? Can the “Transformers: (survive the) Age of Extinction” now that the chimps are back in town? What about troublesome “Tammy?” How much longer will her depraved party days last? Although they always enjoy a good bash, the undercover cops covering the “22 Jump Street” beat find themselves slowly being pushed to that dreaded back alley at the box office. Might they seize the day and regain a more celebratory spot on the Hollywood database? Will the kids causing a commotion shouting “Earth to Echo” finally be heard?

Within our make-believe universe, spirited species and space ships abound, robots rule as thinking men and feisty females flourish. Evil may live but entertainment certainly reigns, as fireworks of all kinds dance across our colorful, cinematic screens.
What story will provide the most colorful fireworks this weekend?

Film’s Finest Fireworks

Fireworks will be starting a bit early this holiday weekend, as “Tammy” and her alcohol-infused grandmother join the movie celebration (as well as any party with a keg). Witnessing the debauchery, moviegoers will certainly be shouting “Deliver Us from Evil” (a.k.a. uncontrollable elderly folks, long concession stand lines and lousy films). Fortunately, the fellows from “22 Jump Street” are still circling the block, ready to land at the nearest sign of trouble (or festivities of any kind). The “Transformers: Age of Extinction” mechanical members are too engaged in celebrating their impressive number one box-office status to concern themselves with insignificant human troubles while our younger members of humanity are entertaining themselves by trying to reform “Maleficent” into a law-abiding lady as their voices reverberate, “Earth to Echo” and all alien life forms. With school temporarily out of session, our good-hearted youth have plenty of time to assist extraterrestrials while figuring out “How to Train Your Dragon 2” get ahead of the non-space-invading movie crowd. Perhaps the answer to a crowded movie theater is to “Think Like a Man Too” smart to leave the storytelling party early (at least not before the credits roll). Luckily, the “Jersey Boys” have promised an entertaining closing act. The Four Seasons, naturally, will provide their own Fourth of July fireworks.
Are you ready for that explosive event?
