'Act of Valor' finishes first at weekend box office

Looks like somewhat of a weak weekend at the box office. A movie that the AP awarded one and a half stars placed first, while the latest from the incredibly successful Tyler Perry finished definitively in second place, which was followed by a poorly reviewed kids movie. But who cares, because the Oscars are on tonight, right?

From The Associated Press:
Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.
