Weekend Box Office: Dolphin Fights Lion and Wins!

This past Friday, I cohosted the Time To Play TV show, Time To Play With Jim & Chris. Hopefully you tuned in and saw Chris and I discussing the movie Dolphin Tale. Is it just a coincidence that after our conversation Dolphin Tale went from 3rd place at the box office to 1st? Yes, it is a coincidence but I’d like to think that we had something to do with it so just let me continue to live in this delusional bubble for a little longer. Dolphin Tale lept over The Lion King (3D) and Money Ball to take the number one spot, which left Money Ball in second and The Lion King in third.
