Weekend Box Office: Number One Is An Unknown image
Less than two months into the new year and Hollywood has already foisted the first of what is scheduled to be a painful glut of sequels this year. It doesn't bode well that this is a sequel that no one asked for, no one wanted and no one should ever have made.

Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son, the third in the series which sees Martin Lawrence donning a fat woman suit and sneaking in to live with women, defied all logic by actually getting a release date. It even further defied rational explanation by earning $17 million at the box office this weekend. By average ticket price that means there are 2.1 million people out there who should be ashamed of themselves for even thinking about wasting money on the movie, much more for actually doing.

But the good news is that the movie only made fourth place. Liam Neeson, who seems to be making action thrillers a steady part of his career these days, headlined Unknown which took first place with $21 million. The enigmatic sci-fi entry I Am Number Four settled for a close number two with $19 million.
