Funny People debuted at No. 1 at the box office this weekend, raking in a moderately successful $23.4 million.
And what’s not so funny? An incredibly tepid box office – far different to this time last year, when Dark Knight was pulling in the equivalent of a small country’s GNP.
Despite general bad reviews, the Judd Apatow-directed movie, starring Adam Sandler as a terminally ill comic, beat out other releases, such as ‘Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince,’ which took in $17.7 million, and ‘G-Force,’ which came in third with $17.1 million.
