Comedy sparked a box office comeback this weekend as Baby Mama banked $18.3 million from mostly female film-goers, Variety reports. Also fueling the 17.2% hike over last year's frame were stoner sequel Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay with $14.6 million in second, and Jackie Chan's Forbidden Kingdom with $11.2 million in third.

Bloomberg runs down the rest of this weekend's winners:

  • #4: Forgetting Sarah Marshall, $11 million
  • #5: Nim's Island, $4.5 million
  • #6: Prom Night, $4.4 million
  • #7: 21, $4 million
