After four weeks at the top of the box office, The Hunger Games has finally been defeated. Should we have a moment of silence? No? Okay, moving on. Surprisingly, it wasn't the shot of over-the-top romance from Zac Efron and Nicholas Sparks (The Lucky One) that shoved The Hunger Games out of the way. Nope, it was Think Like a Man, the comedy that revolves around the proper use of the relationship advice featured in Steve Harvey's book of the same name.
Think Like a Man climbed its way to number one with $33 million, while The Lucky One settled for second place with $22.8 million. The Hunger Games fell to third, just in front of the weekend's other new release, Chimpanzee ($10.2 million), which earned the best three-day opening total for a Disneynature movie thus far.
The good record-breaking box office vibes for Chimpanzee also carried over to its reviews, with critics rating it the highest of the new releases over at Rotten Tomatoes, awarding it a 77% Fresh rating. Think Like a Man comes next with 49% Rotten, while critics did not fall in love with The Lucky One, handing over a paltry 20% Rotten rating.
All these numbers do tell us something else, though: That you went to the movies this past weekend. So here's the part where we ignore the critics and the box office numbers and ask you to let us know what you thought of the new releases. Sound off in our poll below and in the comments, and don't be afraid to tell us what you really think.
