    @catnip: yup. she seems to have the mentality that shes the sh*t but not only was she outdone by 1D but the critics and audience didnt see the movie as good and the acting was poor.

    Sorry dude. Jennifer has first billing. But to be fair they both are leads. And that doesn’t negate the fact that this IS Jennifer’s 6th 100+ Million dollar domestic gross as a lead female.

    Good job The Butler! Totally deserve the success! I thought those idiot teenagers would take over the box office this weekend but looks like some people still have good taste. It’s nice to see. Now on to the Oscars Butler!
