Following up on Pajiba’s review of “Beverly Hills Chihuahua” (try to guess if they liked it), Box Office Mojo says that it was number one over the weekend. Going up against other new releases like “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist” and “Blindness,” it managed to best them and make $29 million. $12 million more than last week’s number one, “Eagle Eye”. No small feat considering the trailer looked absolutely horrible. Like, if you bleached your brain, you still wouldn’t forget how horrible it is. It would make even the most enthusiastic chihuahua lover kick one out of spite.
“Nick and Norah” came in third. Possibly because people have finally realized they can’t relate to these “Juno” type comedies. Honest to blog.
“Blindness” opened up in 12th place. There were reports that the blind were going to protest this movie, but I don’t think that’s what affected their numbers as I’m pretty sure, unbeknownst to them, they were redirected towards the Scientology building.
