  1. What’s also interesting is that Parental Guidance and Lincoln are the only two films in the top 10 to have already earned double their budget so far–and I think Parental Guidance has done it the fastest ($25 mil. to make and already over $50mil. gross–in less than two weeks!). Lincoln had a $65 mil. budget, so just doubled its budget, despite being out since November. Next on the list is Les Mis, which cost $61 mil. to make and should double its money within the next 7 days. (sorry, you know how I always like to throw in trivia).

    Nonetheless, I think that because Parental Guidance has done so well at the box office, considering its cost (and quick profit!), that rumors of a sequel may turn to fruition. I’ve already read articles of a potential sequel where Bette and Billy meet the “other” (more favorite) grandparents, with clashing styles of child-rearing. I see great possibilities here, and really enjoyed the chemistry between Bette and Billy–I would certainly like to see more of them together in the future.

    1. Thanks as always Ron. Tomorrow there’s supposed to be some kind of announcement concerning Bette stuff, but i wasn’t told what….xx
