    We really should compile all these legendary Susyisms.

    Back on topic, wonderful! Now lets see if we can make a dent in that $600million Disney spent on the two films! Thats $300million this film has to make to claim the money it used up back.

    But what a wonderful achievement for Disney!

    WOW, 132 million. I was excpectiong about 120 million. Now lets all hope that people stick with this movie and it keeps making money. I bet the third one will break the record again... just look how the 2nd one left you hanging.

    The numbers look good, but adjusted for inflation the gap closed to $10 million
