Couples Retreat takes trip to top of box office

12 October 2009

Couples Retreat has taken the top spot at the top of the US box office.

It may have been savaged by critics but audiences flocked to see the Vince Vaughn comedy. The resort caper made over $35 million, easily beating the estimated haul of $20 million that industry experts predicted.

Last week's number one film, Zombieland, slipped to number two, while Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs dropped to number three.

Animated re-release of Toy Story and Toy Story 2 was in fourth - while sleeper smash Paranormal Activity jumped from 15 places to five.

The low budget horror film has been compared to The Blair Witch Project.
