After a decisive victory on Friday, Dumb and Dumber To held on to the top spot this weekend and beat most expectations in the process. An expected challenge from Disney holdover Big Hero 6 fell a bit short, which left the comedy sequel the undisputed box office champ. DDT opened with an estimated $38 million this weekend – easily surpassing the high end of its projections. The sequel now ranks as the highest domestic debut ever for the Farrelly Brothers, topping 2000’s Me, Myself and Irene even after adjusting for inflation. Both Big Hero 6 and Interstellar had strong sophomore holds, though neither was able to overtake Harry and Lloyd in the end.
|1.||Dumb and Dumber To||$38,053,000||$38|

|4.||Beyond the Lights||$6,500,000||$6.5|
