The Vow Dominates the Weekend Before Valentine's Day

The romantic, I'm-going-to-drag-my-boyfriend-to-this-film-because-it's-Valentine's-Day-weekend flick, The Vow, easily took the number one spot this weekend, with just north $41 million. The Denzel Washington movie Safe House wasn't to far behind with $39 million with Journey 2 ($27 million) trailing behind that. It's somewhat surprising that Star Wars: The Phantom Menace 3D came in fourth, despite still making a nice chunk of change ($23 million) for a re-release. Anyways, it was a pretty big weekend for movies, since most of these did way better than expected.
