Consumers March to the Movies

Re-establshing a pre-money pumping consumpton-savings ratio in favor of consumption was apparently the plan for many on Christmas Day.

From AP (My emphasis):

Twentieth Century Fox says "Marley & Me" has set a Christmas Day record with $14.75 million at the box office.

That breaks the previous mark of $10.2 million, set by "Ali" in 2001, according to Media By Numbers LLC.

And "Marley & Me" may not be alone: "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and "Bedtime Stories" were also expected to move past the previous Christmas Day mark, according to some studio estimates.

Even "Valkyrie" had a strong Yuletide opening with more than $8 million, those numbers show.
