When love IS war, get it?? Let me know if I should slow down.

Obsessed drilled the competition like your mom at a hobo sex party this weekend, grossing an estimated $28.5 million and leaving second place 17 Again ($11.665 mil) in the dust.  It got crappy reviews and didn’t screen for critics, but audiences were just so charmed by the complex storyline.  See, Stringer Bell knows a white woman and she wants to steal him from his wife, so they fight.  It’s like a Greek tragedy, really.  Except with black people.  (full top ten after the jump)

Oh hey look, I found the theme music.  Craig Robinson sings it at the 24-second mark.  Weird, they put it in the wrong movie.
