Summer is officially over and although most of the end-of-summer crap has been dumped over the last few weekends the box office continues showing the usual slow down as the doldrums between summer and the Thanksgiving roll through.

Number one went to lazy thriller The Perfect Guy which banked a surprisingly high $26 million. That was just enough to edge out M. Night Shyalaman's latest offering, The Visit, which took a close second with $25 million. The Visit marks his second lowest opening ever and something of a surprise that audiences are still willing to give him another chance after a depressingly long chain of disappointments.

Writer/director Michael Polish's newest movie 90 Minutes in Heaven bowed in at ninth place with a miniscule $2.1 million. That was enough to edge out Spanish language animated flick Un Gallo con Muchos Huevos which expanded to over 600 screens to bank $1.9 million and a tenth place expansion.
