However, it opened weakly compared to the 2006 film, taking a little more than half the amount that film managed in its first weekend.
Former number one Paul Blart, Mall Cop rounded out the top five.
Defying the credit crunch, cinema revenues were up by 19.4% in North America compared to the same period last year.
Paul Dergarabedian, president of Media by Numbers which compiles the figures said: "I've not seen the start of a year this strong in my entire career."
Jennifer Aniston's previous film Marley and Me also topped the North American box office on its release at Christmas.
Producers of He's Just Not that Into You hope the romantic comedy will also benefit from the Valentine's Day audience next weekend.
