In a slight surprise, the new release “Act Of Valor” topped the box office this weekend.  The movie starred real U.S. active duty Navy Seals designed to showcase the superior skill and bravery of the U.S. Navy.  Sounds like it is an incredible movie, and reviews have been excellent.

The bad surprise of the weekend was the incredibly poor performance of the new movie “Wanderlust”. Starring Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston, many thought the comedy would be in the top 5, but finished a disappointing 8th place in it’s first weekend of release, earning less than seven million.
