Jim Carrey’s A Christmas Carol won the weekend box office as expected, but it didn’t make the boffo money that most animated holiday movies tend to make, which is a sign of weak word of mouth or just a weak economy. George Clooney’s Men Who Stare At Goats managed a third place finish, while The Box faltered to sixth.

2. Michael Jackson’s This Is It – $14m
