Filed under Movies/TV

Movie audiences became sober after a two-week Hangover to say “Yes!” to Sandra Bullock’s long-awaited return to romantic comedies, as The Proposal was #1 at the box office this weekend with $34.1 million.   After a string of dramatic turns in films such as Crash and The Lake House, The Proposal proves once again that we still have love for Sandy.

However, moviegoers still remain to have The Hangover, now second with almost $27 million ($26.9), and was still Up in third place with $21.3 million.  Currently buzzing at almost $153 million, The Hangover is now in the Top 20 of all -time blockbusters of films rated R, as Up keeps going at $224 million.

And, finally, Jack Black takes audiences back to Year One, which debuts in the Top 5 with $20.2 million.
