FROM HOLLYWOOD REPORTER:
Fox's "Knight and Day," looking to jump-start the weekend, didn't exactly gun its engines as it opened Wednesday to $3.8 million.
But between "Knight," with its blend of romance, screwball comedy and action, and Sony's "Grown Ups," which offers broad slapstick, industryites are hoping this week's wide openers prove sufficiently complementary to shape a third straight solid session at the domestic boxoffice.
"Grown Ups" should emerge as a strong No. 2, though, offering up Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade and Rob Schneider in a laughs-filled reunion of high school basketball teammates. Dennis Dugan ("You Don't Mess With the Zohan") directed the PG-13 pic. Tracking suggests a $40 million debut for the movie, whose production cost was in the $70 million range.
"Wendy? Darling? Light, of my life. I'm not gonna hurt ya. You didn't let me finish my sentence. I said, I'm not gonna hurt ya. I'm just going to bash your brains in."
