In its second week out, the family flick starring Harry Connick Jr. and Morgan Freeman reeled in $14.2 million. Brad Pitt's Moneyball, also in its second week, garnered enough for second place with $12.5 million.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen had a solid opening for the comedy 50/50 with $8.8 million, but it wasn't enough to push passed third place winner The Lion King 3D, which took in $11 million.
