Bad Teacher [BDTCH] took third place at $17.6 million.  The R-rated comedy declined 54% when comparing Fri-Sun from its debut weekend. 

The combined star wattage of Tom Hanks [THANK] and Julia Roberts [JROBE] only propelled Larry Crowne [LCROW] to $15.7 million over the long weekend.  The film skewed heavily older with 93% over the age of 25.

Monte Carlo [MONTC] debuted with $8.75 million over the holiday weekend.  The Selena Gomez [SGOME] led comedy appealed to her demographic as 82% female of the audience was and 61% under the age of 25.
