Weekend Box Office Results: Harry Potter takes a guinea pig in the rump

What's more embarrassing: (A) that Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince couldn't top a guinea pig movie in its second weekend or (B) that America loves guinea pigs voiced by Owen Wilson? I'm going with the latter. I hope America is ready for 7 more direct-to-video spy-based guinea pig movies, and I also hope America is proud that they hurt Harry's feelings. What a bunch of pig-obsessed bullies we are. I only hope this means that, next year, we aren't all shocked when the second week of Iron Man 2 is thwarted by the new movie Action Frogs: Frogs Who Love Action.

Here are the results (haiku style):

1.) G-Force - $32 million (Accuracy of prediction - 79%)

Don't doubt the rodents.
They may be quite disgusting,
so is Kevin James.

2.) Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - $30 million (Accuracy of prediction - 87%)

Voldemort aside,
Harry's biggest foe is us!
We prefer rodents.

3.) The Ugly Truth - $27 million (Accuracy of prediction- 91%)

Now Hiegl's a star.
Sandra Bullock is one too.
I smell a team-up.

4.) Orphan - $13 million (Accuracy of prediction - 96%)

Blink and you'll miss it,
this movie will be gone soon.
Like it never was.

5.) Ice Age 3 - $8 million (Accuracy of prediction - 82%)

Nothing left to say.
Let's talk about something else.
I like burritos.

Overall accuracy of prediction - 87%

Respectable week.
Nothing to write home about.
Happy Monday gang!
