The Bounty Hunter came in third place in the box office this weekend.

We still can’t believe it! Jennifer Aniston‘s new movie The Bounty Hunter had a slow opening this past weekend, according to Deadline.com. The romantic comedy, starring Jen and her reported love interest Gerard Butler, made $20.5 million — falling behind predictions that went as high as $30 million. It came in behind Alice in Wonderland and Diary of a Wimpy Kid, which raked in $34 and $21.8 million, respectively.

But don’t blame Jen for the disappointing showing! She’s has had some big hits in the past year: The Break-up made $118 million, He’s Just Not That Into You made $93 million and Marley and Me took in a whopping $143 million!

Keep in mind, too, that He’s Just Not That Into You opened not too far ahead of The Bounty Hunter, at $27 million. In the weeks to come, it could out to be a hit after all!

And the lackluster box office performance didn’t stop the movie’s stars from having fun this weekend: Gerard hit up a Lakers game with pal Adrien Brody on Sunday, according to JustJared.com, and Jen kept busy filming her next comedy Just Go With It in Los Angeles with Adam Sandler.

Good job staying busy, Jen. Ignore those critics — we LOVED the movie!
