Meet the Fockers overcame Grinch-like reviews to top the weekend box office with $44.7 million. The comedy sequel grossed $19.1 million on Saturday alone, setting a new Christmas Day record. (The previous benchmark was set by The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, which brought in $14 million last Christmas.) Fat Albert weighed in at No. 2 with $12.7 million, followed by Lemony Snicket at No. 3 with $12.5 million and The Aviator at No. 4 with $9.4 million.
