You know that saying: "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is"? Welp, it doesn't apply here.
It's not really summertime without Disney making a boatload of money off a Marvel movie. Taking the No. 1 spot in dominating fashion this week is "Captain America: Civil War," bringing in over $181 million. That's the fifth-largest domestic debut of all time.
For those keeping score, that makes three of the top-five biggest debuts ever Marvel films. This Captain America box office performance exceeds the other two standalone Cap movies by quite a bit.
But considering there are at least 10 different heroes in this flick, this is essentially another Avengers film — which brings me to the most impressive thing about this movie. With so many characters and so many storylines, "Captain America: Civil War" manages to make everything matter.
"I know we've complained on this show about 'corporate-mandated' filmmaking where you have to check all the boxes ... This one they check all the boxes with a bullet, and they make it awesome," Matt Atchity said.
Where "Age of Ultron" force-fed some characters and scenes to the audience, "Civil War" manages to make Spider-Man, Black Panther and Ant-Man all fit naturally, which is at least one reason why it carries such a high Rotten Tomatoes score.
Last thing, and I really can't emphasize this enough, the airport scene alone is worth the price of admission.
But he also made "Pretty Woman," so I guess all is forgiven.
As for next week, Jim Cramer's worst nightmare.
