Sex comedy The 40-Year-Old Virgin has kept its place on top of the North American box office chart.
The 40-Year-Old Virgin star Carell is in the US version of The Office
The film is a vehicle for Steve Carell, star of the US version of The Office, and took $16m (£9m)in its second week.
Carell co-wrote the film, which casts him as a middle-aged worker in an electronics shop whose colleagues discover he has never had sex.
Terry Gilliam's The Brothers Grimm, starring Matt Damon, debuted in second place with $15.1m (£8.3).
The Cave, an underground monster movie featuring a cast of unknowns, opened at number six with $6.2m (£3.4m).
The weekend's other new release - the romance Undiscovered, featuring Ashlee Simpson and Pell James as friends who fabricate media buzz to help a friend's music career - flopped with just $690,000 (£382,700), finishing far out of the top 10.

Hollywood is having its worst year since the late 1990s, with summer attendance expected to come in 12% behind last year, according to box-office tracker Exhibitor Relations.
The release of The Brothers Grimm was delayed for a year as Gilliam fought over the final version with brothers Harvey and Bob Weinstein, the heads of Miramax Films, whose Dimension banner released the movie.
The Brothers Grimm is among a number of Miramax movies now being released as the Weinsteins prepare to depart Disney-owned Miramax for a new film company they have formed.
"It's a respectable opening," said Paul Dergarabedian, president of Exhibitor Relations. "You can't underestimate the following that Terry Gilliam has."
