Holy Man managed only $5.1 million from 2013 screens, making it Eddie Murphy's worst opening ever as a major star. Hopefully this is a sign that Urban Legend and A Night at the Roxbury satiated the public's appetite for crap for the time being.

Meanwhile, Antz was down 15% with $14.7 million (35.6 total). A Night at the Roxbury, again, fared better than expected, scoring another $6.1 million (17.8 total). However, each added over 300 screens to their already wide releases.
