I know there are some pretty “poor” reviews for Love Guru, but I’m not shocked that Get Smart won the box office…it does look like a great movie.

Did anyone go and watch some of these movies last weekend?

IT WAS THIRD! HAHAHA. I love it. Serves Jessica Alba right. Seriously. I AM SO GLAD IT DIDN’T GET NUMBER ONE. <3 As much as I LOVE Justin, I’m glad that Jessica got her black heart broken.

Actually, Love Guru ended up in FOURTH. So sorry, Jessica Alba.  smile

Eep. I can’t count. XD Well, that’s even better! :D
