The Bad Guys topped another slow week the box office. The animated family flick spent its second week at #1, earning an estimated $16 million, bringing its two-week domestic gross to $44.4 million.

Liam Neeson‘s action flick Memory tanked in its debut, only managing an estimated $3.1 million for an eighth-place finish.
