    Will Smith's con-man caper "Focus" disrobed "Fifty Shades of Grey" at the box office, but the film's modest $19.1 million opening still left questions about the drawing power of the once unstoppable star.

    According to studio estimates Sunday, Warner Bros.' "Focus" easily topped all competitors on a weekend with little competition at North American multiplexes. In second place was the Colin Firth spy thriller "Kingsman: The Secret Service," which made $11.8 million in its third week of release.

    This will be the only time I pull for Will Smith to knock off the top movie.

    Will Smith? Ugh. Him and his entire dopey family. To me they're all on a Karadasian level of narcissism.

    Does this "Focus" movie have a scene where Will Smith is running?

    To be fair that's the way it is in Hollywood. every leading older man has a leading woman half their age. It's not fair but when you are female in Hollywood and over 40 you are finished. with a few exceptions of course.

    I believe this is the movie Artie turned down because it was beneath him, and he didn't even want to read for the part because the character's name is "Fatass Farhad".

    Hey Artie, another smart move! How are those $7 podcast numbers doing, you lazy fucking junkie? Hey I forgot you screwed over that Betty White / Valerie Bertinelli show too, by failing to show up at all.

    This "Kingsman" thing is starting to sound attractive; is it any good?

    Took the Misses out for date night last night and saw it.

    Not bad... Not great, but not bad.

    I recommend catching it on NetFlix

    So true, even in Napolean Dynomite, John Heder was 27, Efren Ramirez (Pedro) was 31 while all the high school girls in the movie were still in their teens in real life.
