A rated-R horror/comedy film made it to the top? Heck yeah! I love zombie films. And I love comedy films. Heck, I love "Shaun of the Dead." So will I love "Zombieland"? Most likely.

The Kid Factor also helps win out the weekend by serving "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs" a big box office push along with the "Toy Story 3-D" double feature. You wouldn't think people would flock to see older films reformatted into a new dimension for three hours, but they will.

Drew Barrymore's directorial debut starring her and Ellen Page did not Bring It to movie theaters, and neither did Ricky Gervais' new film either (or Michael Moore's new documentary).

So what will win next weekend? Nothing really good coming out. Can we expect "Zombieland" to win two weeks in a row? We'll have to wait and see.
