Finally, The Rock has come back to the box office.
Defying expert predictions, The Game Plan handed The Kingdom its hat at the box office over the weekend, $22 million to just above $17 million for The Kingdom. The Rock is apparently cooking up a movie that people want to see, or else it's just the fact that The Kingdom looked so dour and so much like it was patently begging for an Oscar, that people gave it a pass.
The critical response to both movies was spotty, but, according to experts, The Game Plan won the day because people are starving for family comedies to go and see, since they've been a little sparse of late. Hence, the victory for the Disney family feature.
