'Fockers' continues to outsell all other movies

"Meet the Fockers" broke more records over the weekend, earning the most money on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, and taking in a total of $42.8 million. The sequel to "Meet the Parents" starring Ben Stiller and Robert DeNiro — along with new cast members Barbra Streisand and Dustin Hoffman — continued its holiday record-breaking trend: It did the best Christmas Day box office ever, too.

The movie has made an astounding $163.4 million since it opened two weeks ago, despite mediocre reviews. The holiday weekend was up 4 percent over last year's closing week. Second-place winner "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events" rose 17 percent at the box office, and earned an estimated $14.7 million. Leonardo DiCaprio's "The Aviator" landed in third place, at $11.2 million, while "Fat Albert" plopped from second to fourth place at $10.7 million and "Ocean's Twelve" hit $9.2 million.
