Johnny Knoxville Kicks Jackass in the box office

It’s kind of a sad world we live in where Jackass 3-D has a $50 million opening weekend. Not only does it perpetuate the silly antics of Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, and boys, but the myth that 3-D makes for a good movie. Oh well, I guess there is no accounting for taste. It’s unfortunate since an infinitely more creative movie like Bruce Willis’ RED earned only $22 million- a far second from first. Budgeted at $40 million, The Social Network has brought in a modest $63 mil in it’s third week. Nothing of consequence opens next weekend, which means Knoxville and boys will probably kick jackass for one more weekend (*sigh).
