Funny Little Weekend at Box Office

Funny People, the drama about comedians dealing with death and love lost in Los Angeles, nabbed the top spot at the box office.

But is it a success for reigning giggle king Judd Apatow, who produced the film?

For star power like Adam Sandler, a nearly $24 million opening weekend usually just covers his price tag.

Analysts point out, however, that this is a successful opening for the more serious fare Sandler has attempted.

Elsewhere, Katherine Heigl keeps scoring with her Ugly Truth, which is set to pass $55 million end of Sunday.
