Adam Sandler's 'Just Go With It' narrowly beat Justin Bieber's 'Never Say Never' at the box office
Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler's new movie, "Just Go with It" narrowly beat the Justin Bieber documentary "Never Say Never" in the weekend box office, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
"Just Go with It" pulled in $31 million while the Bieber doc made $30.3 million, which still blew away predictions for both flicks.
"Never Say Never" cost $13 million to produce and was leading the box office on Friday with $12.4 million, but attendance was expected to drop dramatically on Saturday but remained strong. Of Bieber's audience, 67 percent were under the age of 25 and 84 percent of were female.
Most box office estimates favored "Just Go with It," which earned an estimated $9.7 million on Friday. Sandler's romantic comedy is expected to see a spike in the box office on Valentine's Day.
In the film, Sandler plays a plastic surgeon who tells women he is married in order to avoid commitment. Then he meets a woman who he actually likes (model Brooklyn Decker) and when she finds his fake wedding ring, Sandler pretends that his marriage is not working out. Aniston plays his office manager who agrees to pose as his soon-to-be ex-wife.
On February 1st, Adam Sandler received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The actor said "The star is beautiful... I like the amount of marble" at the ceremony, where he was joined by his wife, daughters and friends like Kevin James.
Bieber's concert flick was the idea of Island Def Jam chairman, Antonio L.A. Reid, who talked to The Hollywood Reporter in their most recent issue about the "Making of Justin Bieber."
