The second new entry on the chart this week came in the form of Big Mommas: Like Father Like Son, which saw martin Lawrence return to the big screen.

Yogi Bear fell just one place to six but this week's biggest faller was Tangled, Disney's fiftieth animation movie, as it was down four at seven.

Comedy Just Go With It, which topped the U.S. box office, fell two places to finish at number eight.

Bieber fever didn't sweep through UK cinemas as expected as Never Say Never only opened at nine - failing to make a million in it's opening weekend.
