Your weekend box office:

1. Identity Thief - $36.6 million, performing better than expected despite a violent blizzard in the Northeast. A little snow isn't enough to hold people back from enjoying the hilarity of credit card fraud.

2. Warm Bodies - $11.5 million, dropping from the top spot as Melissa McCarthys become the new zombies.

3. Side Effects - $10 million, marking one of Soderbergh's worst openings ever for a wide release. These days, it seems most would rather not hear about prescription drug side effects, and if they sleep-drive, they sleep-drive.

4. Silver Linings Playbook - $6.9 million, nearing $100 million as it rides the wave of Oscar buzz that maybe it will lose to Argo instead of Lincoln.

5. Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters - $5.8 million, another week of people making a conscious effort to see Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters--now through inclement weather!
