According to this story from Reuters, Maxwell Smart took control of the weekend box office in North America, while Mike Myers lost his mojo with his new comedy. ‘Get Smart,’ a remake of the classic television spy spoof, sold an estimated $39.2 million worth of tickets during its first three days, distributor Warner Bros. Pictures said on Sunday.
Here’s the thing I don’t get. It’s only 1 in the afternoon on Sunday. Do they guesstimate for the remainder of the day?
Between the two movies, I’d much rather see “Get Smart” – even though, according to Paul Lane, “The Love Guru” actually has a local connection.
That said, neither of them looks good enough for me to leave the house to go see. Can you say NetFlix?
