As expected, the Martin Lawrence comedy sequel Big Momma's House 2 debuted as the weekend's top movie at the box office with $27.7 million. Unexpectedly, however, the G-rated Nanny McPhee took in $14.5 million to come in second. Brokeback Mountain increased its screen count by more than a third, but its take fell 16 percent from last week -- good enough, however, to place sixth. The Weinstein Co. began rolling out the Pearce Brosnan starrer Matador, moving it from a handful of theaters over the past few weeks to 885 theaters nationwide, with encouraging results. The film took in $3.6 million for place tenth.
