Semi-Pro shot to number one at the weekend box office but played worse than expected for New Line, banking just $15.3 million, Bloomberg reports. "It's just Will Ferrell in another funny costume," one analyst said. "The act appeared a bit rote this time." An R-rating and poor reviews may have also hurt the sports laffer, Variety reports.
Another big weekend debut, Tudor flick The Other Boleyn Girl, was crowned fourth and banked $8.3 million debut. Meanwhile, political thriller Vantage Point fell to second place with $13 million, kids’ adventure flick The Spiderwick Chronicles slid to third with $8.7 million, and sci-fi spectacle Jumper dropped from third to fifth with $7.6 million.
