March 16, 2012 - March 18, 2012

Coming off the lowest weekend in history of the index, the Misix Movie Quality Index increased slightly (2.58) to 51.29, but remained well below average. The jump in movie quality was primarily due to the addition of top-rated 21 Jump Street (74.91) to the top-ten, which grossed $35 million in its first weekend at the box office. The action-comedy starring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum was the only movie with an index value above 60. The only other new addition to the list was Casa de mi Padre (53.13), which debuted this weekend as well. Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax (55.65) fell to second place in terms of revenue after holding the top spot for the previous two weekends. Once again, the anchor of weekend was A Thousand Words (27.79), the Eddie Murphy film where Eddie Murphy doesn’t talk. The revenue-adjusted movie quality index (61.00) actually rose considerably from the previous weekend (8.31), as the top-grossing film was also the top-rated one (and the rest of movies were rated rather poorly). So unless you are going to see 21 Jump Street, you might as well save your money until next weekend, when the highly anticipated The Hunger Games hits the big screen.
