(Newser) Prom Night scored at the box office this weekend, opening in first with $23 million, Variety reports. It easily shot down Keanu Reeves’ cop thriller Street Kings ($12 million) and trumped gambling flick 21, which banked $11 million in third. Dennis Quaid’s Smart People proved a no-brainer for audiences: The dramedy finished seventh with $4.2 million after mediocre reviews.
