"Fool's Gold" fools critics

Congratulations to Warner Bros. Entertainment's "Fool's Gold" for topping this past weekend's box office top ten. With many critics panning the film starring Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey, the romantic comedy was able to defy the critics as movie goers showed their interest in seeing the shirtless McConaughey and sexy Hudson regroup together for this feature.

Taking in $22 million in ticket sales, the Warner Bros. film faced stiff competition from "Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins" and the popular Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana 3D film concert which was expected to top the charts again this week as it did when it debuted last week. The concert fell to third place with $10.5 million as "Roscoe Jones" squeeze in between "Fool's Gold" and "Hannah Montana" to secure second place.

Next week will have two thrillers battling it out for the Presidents' Day Weekend, Paramount's "The Spiderwick Chronicles" and 20th Century's "Jumper."

"The Spiderwick Chronicles starring Freddie Highmore and Sarah Bolger.

Samuel L. Jackson in "Jumper."
