Jane Fonda’s return to the screen, Monster-in-Law, took the top spot this weekend. The film, which also stars Jennifer Lopez and Wanda Sykes, took in an estimated $24 million this weekend, beating out the Will Ferrell/Robert Duvall comedy Kicking and Screaming, which debuted with $21 million.

Jet Li’s action flick, Unleashed, bowed with $10.6 million while last week’s number one, Kingdom of Heaven, dropped 51% from its opening and took in $9.6 million over its second weekend. The low budget indie, Crash, rounded out the top five with $7.2 million.
