22 Jun

Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted continues to take the number one spot in the box office, taking in $34.1 million. Prometheus came in second, bringing in $20.7 million and Snow White and the Huntsman dropped to #5 .  That’s My  Boy came in at #4 with $13.5 M, while Rock of Ages takes spot #3 earning $14.4M.  Let’s see how they did and if they’re worth the money!

Note: We only review films in wide release.  

That’s My  Boy—R  What’s the buzz?  While still in his teens, Donny (Adam Sandler) fathered a son, Todd (Andy Samberg), and raised him as a single parent up until Todd’s 18th birthday. Now, after not seeing each other for years, Todd’s world comes crashing down on the eve of his wedding when an uninvited Donny suddenly shows up.

So is it worth the money? Not unless you are a fan of Adam and Andy

      Hi LB-

      The animation is great and the mother and daughter story line is sweet. I mean there was some I DON’t THINK SO moments when the daughter does some questionable things to the mom, which sorta sends a bad message. However, the ending makes up for it. Its a tear jerker.
