Brought to you by... Morgan Spurlock? Seriously?
Meanwhile, just as there were other acts on Ed Sullivan the night the Beatles were on, there's a couple other debuts this weekend. At #5, something called *batteries not included... sorry, I mean Instructions not Included. Sounds like an indie comedy centered around Ikea. Now, let's check to see what it actually is... close enough. Unleash the George Lopez wannabes!
Yes, the more adult fare's all taking a back seat this weekend. Why, Lee Daniels' The Butler slips to #2, for Gawd'z zake! That can't be good. There is no joy in Oprahville right now. Nor probably not in Lordhawke's camp. Ethan Hawke's got a new feature this weekend called Getaway and it debuted at #9. Guess they should've tried calling it Stick Around instead. Looks like a reboot of 2011's Drive. Also seems to be in that Faster subgenre of Fast and Furious wannabes more generally. Dayamn, but there's a lot of movies to keep track of!
