I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and enjoyed your fill of turkey leftovers and football mania. Does anyone else have a Black-Friday-plus-Benadryl hangover? Just me ... well, excuse the slurry writing.

In case you don't recall, Patricia picked the following as the top five:

  1. Happy Feet
  2. Casino Royale
  3. Deja Vu
  4. Borat
  5. Deck the Halls

And once again, she was incredibly close, except that this week it's the No. 4 and 5 spots that ended up reversed:

  1. Happy Feet, $37.9 million
  2. Casino Royale, $31 million
  3. Deja Vu, $20.8 million
  4. Deck the Halls, $12 million
  5. Borat, $10.4

For the second week in a row, 'Happy Feet' danced its way to a No. 1 finish, with 'Casino Royale' a close second. 'Happy Feet' has grossed a cool total of $100.1 million in just two weeks, while the latest 007 is headed to break the blockbuster threshold next week, currently holding at $94.2 million. Both films edged out the new Denzel Washington-Jerry Bruckheimer-Tony Scott thriller, 'Deja Vu,' which had to settle for third place with a decent-but-not-extraordinary $20.8 million opening weekend. The time-bending action flick is Denzel's seventh film since 2000's 'Remember the Titans' (his previous collaboration with Bruckheimer) to open with more than $20 million. Go, Denzel, go.

'Borat' is still showing strong, coming in at No. 5 with a little more than $10 million. Made for an estimated $18 million, the Sacha Baron Cohen phenom has grossed more than $109 million in four weeks. Lastly, 'Deck the Halls,' the bland holiday familyflick starring Danny DeVito and Matthew Broderick as competitive neighbors obsessed with Christmas lights, managed to land in fourth place. Since pretty much any Christmas-themed film is likely to do well Thanksgiving weekend, we're guessing moviegoers didn't read the comedy's reviews. Box office trivia: Broderick's highest-opening film is 'Godzilla,' which had a staggering $55.7 million weekend in May, 1998.

That's all folks. Stay tuned for Patricia's weekly predictions on Friday, and stay warm!
