The Hangover is relentlessly hanging on at the box office -- beating out legends like Denzel Washington and John Travolta on their opening weekend. For the second week in a row The Hangover -  the comedy that includes an appearance from Mike Tyson - rocked the number one spot at the box office. This is only the second movie this year to spend two consecutive weeks at #1, the other was Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail in February. Washington and Travolta''s The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 brought in $25 million and ranked at #3 this weekend.

Eddie Murphy 's Imagine That, which was met with mixed reviews , made $5.7 million charting at #6 for the box office this weekend. This is a slight increase from Meet Dave from last year, which only brought in $5 million. However, the movie did not even top Night at the Museum 2 , which was released over a month ago.

1. The Hangover $33.4 million

2. Up $30.5 million

3. The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 $25.0 million

4. Night at the Museum $9.6 million

5. Land of the Lost $9.2 million

6. Imagine That $ 5.7 million
