The road to fame and fortune this weekend was littered with the familiar sight of fast cars and pretty people traveling profitably along at a frenzied, Furious 7 pace. Lurking humbly in their rear view mirrors, audiences spotted lovable Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 timid to enforce the legal speed limit (in part because he’s not really a member of law enforcement) and too tame to stop the horrors inflicted by those bad drivers so rudely Unfriended by our popular, pretty speed demons. Naturally, all of our characters, whether horrifying or humble, just wanted to follow the starry path leading the way Home (a.k.a. a prime box-office location). On that highway of GPS-challenged stars, some of our cast members discovered The Longest Ride to riches offered the most scenic view while others found the road bumpy and in need of a major overhaul (and a quick, friendly exorcism).
Which of our make-believe roadies provided the most picturesque view on that long, cinematic journey?

- Furious 7 $29 million.
- Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 $24 million.
