"Ride Along" easily grabbed the top spot with $21.2 million. The movie centers on security guard Ben, who finally gets accepted into the police academy and thinks he's earned the respect of his girlfriend's brother. Then James invites him on a shift designed to scare the heck out of the trainee.

Meanwhile, Disney hit "Frozen" passed the $800 million mark internationally. The film is the second-highest non-sequel animated release, just behind the highly popular 2003 Academy Award-winning "Finding Nemo."
