'Rio' tops box office again

"Rio" is on top for the second week in a row, and "Hop" is holding on to fourth place for Easter weekend. I was disappointed to see such a poor review for "Water for Elephants" (this week's No. 3), but the review I read in The Columbus Dispatch was much more kind to the movie, which I would like to see.

I haven't seen any of the movies in this weekend's top 10, but this weekend I did see "Win Win", which I thought was pretty good (I'll probably blog about that later this week).

From The Associated Press:
1. “Rio,” $26.8 million. (Review by The AP's Christy Lemire)
2. “Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Big Happy Family,” $25.8 million.
3. “Water for Elephants,” $17.5 million. (Review by The AP's David Germain)
4. “Hop,” $12.5 million. (Review by Germain)
5. “Scream 4,” $7.2 million. (Review by Germain)
6. “African Cats,” $6.4 million. (Review by Lemire)
7. “Soul Surfer,” $5.6 million. (Review by Lemire; "Real 'Soul Surfer' adjusting to having movie made about her" by The AP's Sandy Cohen)
8. “Insidious,” $5.4 million. (Review by Lemire)
9. “Hanna,” $5.3 million. (Review by The Lemire)
10. “Source Code,” $5.1 million. (Review by Lemire)
