A quartet of contenders pulled up to the starting line this weekend, but they all swallowed Pixar exhaust as Cars pulled far enough ahead to get the checkered flag. Nacho Libre rang the bell in second, proving that combining the extraneous quirk of Napoleon Dynamite with Jack Black’s increasingly tired shtick is a formula for success.

The Japan-based star-free tune-up of the Fast and the Furious "franchise" threw fumes in third, while counterprogramming options like the Keanu/Bullock letter-writing campaign The Lake House floated in fourth, and the entirely needless Garfield sequel sprawled out in sixth. The Break-Up would’ve been the year’s first successful R-rated comedy, if only it wasn’t rated PG-13… ah well, at least we have fond memories of the good old days of movies like The 40 Year Old Virgin. 

Next weekend we discover if Adam Sandler is still a reliable income generator with Click, while the Tyrese ghetto actioner Waist Deep plays underdog.
