Jennifer Aniston’s comedy, “Marley & Me”, co-starring Owen Wilson beat out Brad Pitt’s drama “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” on Christmas day.
The dog story “Marley & Me” was No. 1 at the Christmas Day box office in the United States, taking in about $14.6 million, BoxOfficeMojo.com reported Friday.
Coming in at No. 2 on the popular movie-going day was the aging fable “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” with $11.7 million
Earlier this year Jennifer Aniston said that she wanted her movie to tie with Brad’s at the box office because she wanted them to both come out as winners. This is pretty generous for one ex to feel about another and I just have to say more power to her.
This was just the Christmas day results and we will have to see what happens with box office after this weekend. “Marley & Me” has gotten mixed reviews from the critics ranging from an A- from Entertainment Weekly and a D+ from Rolling Stone. It has also received a Heartland Truly Moving Picture Award.
Critics have been more favorable toward the “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”, but we know that critics do not make box office hits-ticket sales do. So we will have see how it will go down with the box office battle of the exes.

Jennifer Aniston can see a baby in her future. The former friends star says that she would like to be a mom someday, but she would like it if magazines would stop announcing to the world that she is pregnant when she isn’t. She is not pregnant now, but when the time comes she wants to be the one to make the big announcement and not have the tabloids or other media outlets stealing her thunder. Aniston is set to release her new movie Marly and Me.
