'Rio' speaks louder than 'Madea,' repeats at No. 1

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Anne Hathaway and Jake Eisenberg's talking birds have edged out Tyler Perry's sass-talking grandma at the weekend box office.

Hathaway and Eisenberg's animated family adventure "Rio" took in $26.8 million to remain the No. 1 movie for the second-straight weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday.

"Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family" debuted a close second with $25.8 million, another solid opening for
writer-director Perry, who also stars as boisterous, opinionated grandma Madea.

Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson's circus romance "Water for Elephants" premiered in third-place with $17.5 million.

A love-bird story centered on rare parrots, "Rio" raised its domestic total to $81.3 million. The movie has taken in $204.7
million more overseas, for a worldwide haul of $286 million.
