Disney’s McFarland, USA opened up against stiff competition this weekend. It managed to beat all the new films this weekend, but failed to surpass Spongebob, Kingsman, and Fifty Shades of Grey. It did manage to pull in $11 million for the three day weekend, that was definitely less than it deserved.
As I said in my review, the Kevin Costner led film really deserves better than that. It’s great for kids, especially any involved in sports, and transcends the genre of sports film to become something great.
