Jennifer Aniston, Megan Fox Bomb at the Box Office
More people wanted to watch 3-D meatballs than Jennifer Aniston or Megan Fox at the box office this weekend.
The cartoon Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (featuring the voices of Al Roker and Mr. T) earned $30.1 million, claiming the No. 1 spot.
Aniston's new romance, Love Happens, was her worst opening in years, netting $8.5 million for the No. 4 sport.
"Ms. Aniston's role is underwritten to the point that her character barely takes shape," said The New York Times. "Once again she inhabits the Hollywood stereotype of a lonely all-American gal waiting to be completed by a man. Here her super-normality isn't simply bland; it is empty and lifeless; there is no gleam in her eye."
Despite buzz about her same-sex smooch with Amanda Seyfried, her chiller Jennifer's Body opened at No. 5 with $6.8 million.
"It may be a matter of just choosing the right projects for her," he told the Associated Press. "She's trying to find a world beyond Transformers, and she will. She's young and has a lot of promise."
