Fifty Shades of Grey won't hold up spectacularly, but it won't crater either, as the audience does skew slightly older than your typical Twilight crowd. Then again, it doesn't have Valentine's Day. Hmmm, I still can't dip it more than 55 percent as the audience I've spoken to "enjoys" it as a girl's night out. Hey, guys get dozens of nonsense films like this a year, meant only for them, so I can hardly begrudge a terrible movie aimed at an underserved demo. $38.3 million is where I'm at, though there's sooooo much wiggle room on either side. Hot Tub Time Machine 2 looks dead on arrival, poor reviews and no John Cusack sort of murdered it before it started. It's not as though John Cusack is a draw, it's more that a sequel should have the same cast if you want to recapture whatever magic was there. $13.8 million is clearly a sad call, »

At 39 years old, it's safe to say Drew Barrymore has been through a lot. Though her famously turbulent childhood included rehab at the age of 14 and getting emancipated at 15, the Charlie's Angels actress is clearly in a happy, more settled down place these days. Married to art consultant Will Kopelman since June 2012, Drew's now a mom to her adorable daughters Olive, 2, and Frankie, who turns one in April.
