  • these are cumulative totals though, right?

    i would assume that more canadians would like the ballad of ricky bobby. i don’t know why…

  • Cumulative, yes.

    FWIW, I’m not surprised that Talladega Nights did so poorly in Canada — like Cars, which never rose above 5.4% before slipping off the top-ten list, it’s about a very American, very red-state kind of subculture. In a similar vein, Herbie: Fully Loaded (2005) never rose above 6.1%.
