Transformers 3 was No 1 again, as if that’s going to be any real surprise. It’s now domestically the highest grossing film so far this year, and has grossed half a billion dollars worldwide in only nine days. So we can move on…

Horrible Bosses came in No.2 with $28 million, and Kevin James’ comedy Zookeeper came in at third. But with the film’s reported $80 million budget (where did the $80 million go on that film), it’s got a long way to go.

Which brings up the question – what’s the deal with this Kevin James guy? I don’t get it. Is he that popular? Do people find him that funny? I never saw that sit-com he was on, and from what little I’ve seen of him, he’s basically a fat guy with a stupid looking face who falls down a lot. Pretty much what Chris Farley used to do, and I didn’t find him funny at all either. I guess in Sarah Palin’s America he a big deal.
