Box office Mojo:

= $164,591,000 Worldwide Gross. What do you think? disappointing or not that bad?
It's both.

Look at the title of this topic - that's what the movie was expected to do a couple of weeks ago. At the last minute Paramount decided to open it a day early, and their expectations climbed in the days before release. The movie has disappointed those late studio expectations. Nonetheless, this is a successful release so far; Paramount's getting the big bump up in foreign money that just about their entire marketing campaign - and to a great extent, the content of this movie - has been aimed at from the beginning.

Everyone breath into a paper bag for a couple of minutes, or something. Sheesh!
