'Jackass' Movie Tops Box Office Again
STEVE INSKEEP, Host:
Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep, with a reminder of what sells.
Critics call "The Social Network" possibly the year's finest movie. It cost about $50 million to make. And in its first weekend, it made $23 million. Reverse those numbers and you get the far, far more successful opening weekend of "Jackass 3D," the latest movie about guys doing idiotic stunts, made $50 million last weekend. Its cost was 20 million, presumably including insurance.
It's MORNING EDITION.
