Canadian Box Office

Canadian Box Office

I’m just posting the top 5 to make this fun-for-me observation: Canadians don’t like The Love Guru either, despite its hometown appeal. They made up just under 10% of The Love Guru‘s domestic $13.9 box office haul last weekend, and therefore, exactly the same per-capita as Americans did (Canadians make up about 9.83% of the possible movie theatre patrons in the overall North American numbers you see every Sunday and Monday).

1 – Get Smart Warner Bros. $2.42M $2.42M 1
2 2 Kung Fu Panda Paramount $1.92M $10.61M 3
3 1 The Incredible Hulk Universal $1.64M $6.44M 2
4 – The Love Guru Paramount $1.40M $1.40M 1
5 4 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Paramount $909,312 $24.43M 5

This pleases me as I am a bit of a Mike Myers anti-fan.. somewhat because I haven’t found him funny since he was on SNL, and mostly because when I was 18, I worked in the bottom of the Four Seasons Hotel in Toronto (selling ties in a stand in the lobby, no less), and he was an asshole to me on two occasions.
