Jenn-Brad Battle Continues

Team Aniston or Team Brangelina went at it at the box office and Aniston wins round one.

Jennifer and Owen Wilson on Marley and Me's setThat is, if we're looking at the box office this Christmas season. As both of their films opened on the 25th, they were technically competing for the top spot, you know -- bragging rights!

Jen's movie, Marley and Me, about a family and mischievous dog, which we hear is a tearjerker where you laugh and cry during the same flick, grossed $14.8 million bucks on Christmas day alone.

That's the highest one day total for a movie that opened on Christmas.

Before the week was finished Marley and Me took in $36.4 million to take the week's top spot.

As for Brad's flick, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, it didn't do too shabby.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is quite interesting: it's about a life-long romance between a man who ages in reverse and it's based on a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button opened with $11.8 million on Christmas day.

But we're not, we're comparing Jen to Brad. And in the end, let's focus on their films, shall we? Besides, there's that Adam Sandler guy who finished in second place with his Disney film, Bedtime Stories.

Jennifer looks so hot. I read here (http://www.projectweightloss/index.php) about what she eats to keep her body so slim and, wow, she’s got a pretty simple "trick" up her sleeve.

ugh, Andrew, I don't get why everyone refuses to give Jennifer any credit. The Box Office Junkie (http://theboxofficejunkie) just ran a great article about how people should give her credit for her box office viability- you need to read it and wise up.

Benjamin Button is far and away the better film. It may take deeper thinking to fully appreciate and enjoy it but so are most things in life. On a surface level Benjamin Button is beautifully made and some scenes are just breathtaking. Though the story is very moving and poignant it still has light moments that are laugh out loud funny.
