Weekend reviews in 140 or less: Labor Day edition

Did anyone go see "Shark Night 3-D" this weekend? Because according to our timeline - and according to the box office - everyone's apparently still buying tickets to see "The Help."

The controversial adaptation of Kathryn Stockett's novel may have had a somewhat bashful opening, but it's been the No. 1 movie in the country for three weekends in a row, reports Entertainment Weekly.
