Date Night topped the weekend box office despite mixed reviews of the Tina Fey and Steve Carell starring romantic comedy. Date Night earned just over $27 million over the weekend, knocking previous box office champion Clash of the Titans to the number two spot.

Personally, we’re happy to see Clash of the Titans lose the crown in the weekend box office. The cheesy remake is an all around disaster and apparently audiences seem to agree. Date Night, on the other hand, is a relatively witty and fun romantic comedy. Plus, who isn’t just amused as hell at seeing Tina Fey and Steve Carell teamed up on the big screen?

How to Train Your Dragon placed third at the box office with $25.4 million, earning $256 million worldwide since the film’s release. Rounding out the top five was Tyler Perry‘s Why Did I Get Married Too? and the Miley Cyrus yawn The Last Song.

Considering how much audiences lately seem to adore ridiculous comedy movies, we’re betting on a top three debut for the comic book-themed movie Kick-Ass in the next weekend box office totals.
