Weekend B.O. (Sept. 2-4) People Sure Love Themselves "The Help"

You just knew it didn't you? That The Help was going to be No.1 again this weekend. It's like a freight train you can't stop. And there have to be black people who really like this film - though I'm guessing that most of them are those really old black folks on wheelchairs and walkers that I've been seeing lately at movie theaters.

You just knew it didn't you? That The Help was going to be No.1 again this weekend. It's like a freight train you can't stop. And there have to be black people who really like this film - though I'm guessing that most of them are those really old black folks on wheelchairs and walkers that I've been seeing lately at movie theaters.

Columbiana dropped a steep 45% from last week which means either the word of mouth is not good on the film, or there are people who have a problem with an attractive black female in the lead and not in a subservient role or maybe both.
