The Vow and The Notebook

Channing Tatum thinks that his kiss with Rachel McAdams in The Vow wasn't as good as hers with Ryan's Gosling in The Notebook.


The 32-year-old actor is up for the Best Kiss accolade at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, but isn't confident his smooch in the film is of the same caliber that his 31-year-old rival brought to the romantic scenes. 
Ryan and Rachel, 33, won in the same category in 2005 and recreated their lip lock on stage while accepting the award.

Box Office Breakdown: Deathly Hallows Avoids Getting Tangled

Tangled

Tangled's tresses weren't quite long enough to get past the Deathly Hallows last weekend.

Despite a $48.8 million debut ($68.7 million since Wednesday), Disney's latest animated feature found itself in a tight race. The film starring Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi landed firmly into second place -- approximately $300,000 shy of two-time winner Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Burlesque, featuring Christina Aguilera and Cher, rang up $11.9 million in ticket sales and a fourth-place finish. Although that figure isn't exactly something to brag about, it does represent Cher's biggest opening to date.

Promises of nudity couldn't get Love and Other Drugs into the Top 5. The Anne Hathaway/Jake Gyllenhaal movie earned less than $10 million and a sixth place debut. Meanwhile, Faster -- starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Billy Bob Thornton -- grossed $8.5 million for seventh place.
