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.

Comedy rules once again at the box office with The Hangover, as #1 again this weekend with $33.4 million — passing over $100 million mark with $105.4 million.  The sleeper “bachelor party that went wild and led the groom MIA” hit has been the first movie to remain the top since Madea Goes to Jail in February. 

The remake of The Taking of Pentham 123 debuts this weekend at number three with $25 million, as Up remain runner-up with $30.5 million with a total of $187.2 million, and Night of the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian is fourth with $9.6 million.

However, Eddie Murphy bombed for the second summer in a row; with Imagine That in sixth with $5.7 million.  The same with Will Ferrell’s Land of the Lost, which dropped two spots to number five at $5.6 million.
