Leonardo DiCaprio isn't dreaming: after three weeks on top, the box office smash Inception fell to the No. 2 spot behind Will Ferrell's comedy The Other Guys.

According to Movies.com, The Other Guys -- which also stars Mark Wahlberg and Eva Mendes -- reportedly brought in a whopping $35.6 million during its opening weekend, beating Inception's estimated $18.6 million.

But at the New York premiere of The Other Guys on Monday, Ferrell, 43, joked that he isn't used to being on top -- much less coming out ahead of marquee names like DiCaprio.

"I feel like I'm constantly the other guy," he told UsMagazine.com. "I'm always bumped off flights. I never get reservations to fancy restaurants."
