In my area out-state Missouri, critics' reviews mean nothing. Most of the time they act as a contrarian indicator. Look at Wild Hogs as an example. Maybe it does not get lost but has steady business for more than just 1 week!

My 2 cents- parents will hold off on this one due to "penguin fatigue". Looks cute and I like the mockumentary angle they've taken but good reviews don't sway the masses like they used to.
The crowds will hold onto their cash until Ratatouille hits. The Pixar brand has an unbeaten track record and this one will perform like the others. Expect that one to be the animated winner of June.

All three wide releases have underperformed this weekend. Too many movies in a short period of time?

We opened Surf's Up and was disappointed but we did a hell of alot better than our multiplex peers in the area. Would this have done better in the fall like Open Season did?

We are disappointed with the turn out for Surf's Up at our single screen. It's definitely no Shrek 3. Perhaps a fall release would have been better.

Boxoffice Guru had a pretty good quote to sum up this weekends business.

"Hollywood served up more of the same dishes and moviegoers said enough is enough and found their weekend entertainment elsewhere."

I have had people who saw Surf's Up tell me its good but different. Others I think have just had too much penguins!!!!!

It did well but was a dissappointment for the weekend. Maybe the babysitters and daycares will all come this week and fill my weekout nicely.
