'Men in Black 3' knocks 'Avengers' out of first place

I wanted to see "Men in Black 3" this weekend, but the bad reviews kept me away. Anyone see it? Is it worth the full price (or the matinee price)? Or should I wait until it's at the dollar theater (or on Netflix)?

From The Associated Press:
Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Monday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Tuesday.
1. “Men in Black 3,” $70 million ($133.2 million international). (Review by The AP's Christy Lemire; "Smith and Jones form the 'Men in Black' backbone'" by The AP's David Germain)
