Weekend box office: The Simpsons Movie cleans up

Despite a conspicuous lack of build-up, The Simpsons Movie came out on top this weekend, raking in $71.9 million, the best ever big-screen debut for a TV adaptation. Last week's chart-topper I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry–a.k.a. the gay-panic Bosom Buddies–fell to second place, while many Harry Potter fans were clearly still stuck indoors with their noses in The Deathly Hallows: Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix continued its downward slide, grossing a mere $17.1 million and bringing its 19-day total to a paltry $241.8 million. And in the lackluster debut department, Who's Your Caddy?, I Know Who Killed Me, and No Reservations all pulled up predictably short–not even Little Miss Sunshine's Abigial Breslin and her droopy cuteness could save that last one.

More detailed numbers at Box Office Mojo. Now pardon us while we trot down to the Kwik-E-Mart for another delicious Squishee.
