Despite last week's menu of science fiction and dance movies it turns out the public was hungry for something else: Meatballs. The animated family comedy held onto first place for the second week, beating out its nearest competitor by about $10 million. Here's the top five:

1. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs: $25 million
2. Surrogates: $14.9 million
3. Fame: $10 million
4. The Informant!: $6.6 million
5. Tyler Perry's I Can Do Bad All By Myself: $4.8 million


Four new releases this week:

The Invention of Lying
What's It All About: Ricky Gervais directs and stars in this comedy set in a world where everyone tells the truth and one man learns the art of lying.
Why It Might Do Well: Gervais is the star of the British version of The Office, and having Jennifer Garner and Tina Fey in the cast can't hurt.
Why It Might Not Do Well:
The title just sounds so... deceitful.
Number of Theaters:
1,700
Prediction:
$8 million

Toy Story / Toy Story 2 (3D)
What's It All About:
Two Pixar classics about a group of toys belonging to a young boy named Andy return to the big screen in glorious 3D.
Why It Might Do Well:
Two genuinely great films with the added attraction of 3D? What's not to like?
Why It Might Not Do Well:
Both films have been available on home video and have been playing on TV for a very long time.Also, will younger audiences have the attention span to sit through two features?
Number of Theaters:
1,600
Prediction: $11 million
