Box Office results for the weekend!

1 Funny People $23.4 M

2 Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince $17.7 M

3 G-Force $17.0 M

4 The Ugly Truth $13.0 M

5 Aliens in the Attic $7.8 M

6 Orphan $7.2 M

7 Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs $5.3 M

8 The Hangover $5.0 M

9 The Proposal $4.8 M

10 Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen $4.6 M

"Funny People" opened higher than "40 Year Old Virgin," and that one ended up at $177 m worldwide. But it didn't make as much as "Knocked Up's" 30.7 m.

"Harry Potter 6" got released in IMAX and made enough money to beat out "G-Force." Now all is right in the world.

"Aliens in the Attic" was just...there. I expect it to not be in theaters anymore by the time school starts.

Next week, "G.I. Joe" will rock the weekend.
