In ending outside the top five, we find the WB publication Tree, that the studio was expecting to start around $ 15 million, but it could only muster an estimate $ 8.3 million from 2 952 locations. That said, even though the critical response has been mixed, the audience has given him an "A" CinemaScore early in the day, but with such a low opening, the film's fate is probably sealed.

Amazon acquired the movie, which stars Emma Thompson and Mindy Kailing, who also wrote the script, at the Sundance Film Festival this year for a record $ 13 million.
