(Newser) Think Like a Man pulled in $33 million this weekend, unremarkable but for the fact that it ended the Hunger Games' four-week dominance of the box office, reports the Hollywood Reporter. "It worked because it is so damn funny," crowed a Sony exec of Man. "It doesn't matter whether you are a man or a woman." The Suzanne Collins blockbuster took third place—behind The Lucky One's $22.8 million—with $14.5 million, putting it over the $357 million mark worldwide. The rest of the top 10:

  1. Chimpanzee, $10.2 million
  2. The Three Stooges, $9.2 million
  3. The Cabin in the Woods, $7.8 million
  4. American Reunion, $5.2 million
  5. Titanic 3D, $5 million
