It looks like moviegoers in the United States had no problem doing a second round of sexytime with the now-infamous Kazakh journalist, Borat. With Fox's last weekend to bring in some serious American moneys before the release of new, box-office stealing films, Borat's wide release helped the film take the number one spot for a second weekend.

Borat Takes Second Weekend Box Office

Fox didn't have too much to worry about when entering Borat's second weekend. Though having a much wider release, ~800 to ~2500 screens, Borat did not have to do that well to be called a success. With a budget of only $18 million, the film already past the break-even mark with its $26.5 million opening. Fortunately for Sacha Baron Cohen, Borat did not have to be 'execute' as originally feared.

With a wider release, Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan took in a little more than last week with $29 million; more than enough to remain the No. 1 movie for a second-straight weekend.

Though released under a curtain of negative reviews, Disney's Santa Clause 3 continues to do fairly well with a second weekend at the number two spot with $16.9 million. DreamWorks Flushed Away was a close third with $16.6 million.

The biggest newcomer this week was Will Ferrell's Stranger Than Fiction. With $14.1 million, the film easily took the fourth spot. The biggest flop of the week goes to Crowe's A Good Year, with only $3.8 million.

Borat's box office domination is expected to end next weekend with the release of Casino Royale. No matter, with a ten-day take of $67.8 million, Fox is already in Kazakhstan celebrating with the journalist by raping small children and lesser farm animals.

What? That's how those people celebrate, right?

Stay tuned for updates.
