All studio doubts on raunchy comedies, I would assume by this point, have been laid to rest. Sony's R-rated tale of two high school (boy)friends who try to get laid before the end of term outperformed expectation with an estimated $31.2 million.

Superbad is #1

Played on 2,948 screens, Sony is already reaping the rewards on the raunchy romp, Superbad, thanks to the fact that the film's opening week outgrossed the film's entire production cost, $20 million.

Good news for one means bad news for other, however, as Warner Bros. The Invasion only grossed a pitiful $6 million from 2,776 screens.

New Line's Rush Hour 3 took the #2 spot with$22 million, a decline of 55% in its second frame. One of my favorite films this year, The Bourne Ultimatum, declined only 43% in its third frame with $19 million -- bringing the threequel's total domestic take at $163.8 million.

Stardust, Hairspray, Underdog, Order of the Phoenix, The Simpsons Movie and Chuck and Larry filled out the rest of the top ten list.

Just for laughs, The Weinstein Company faced some embarrassment this weekend. Pressured to release The Last Legion, the film -- which wishes it was 300 -- grossed $2.6 million with a wide release.
