Bill Maher Kicks Zucker's Conservative Ass at the Box Office

I'll put on my Hollywood hat just for a minute so I can lead a chorus of righteous laughter at the colossal failure of the persecuted Hollywood conservatives behind An American Carol.


Here's how it fared over the weekend, when stacked up against Bill Maher's Religulous:
















FilmBox Office Gross# Screens Average
American Carol $3,810,000 1,639$2,325
Religulous $3,500,000 502 $6,972

What does this tell us?


Both films were in their first week of release, which means that it's apples to apples. Both had the benefit of their opening week marketing pushes.
