The box office had its share of bumps over Super Bowl weekend. Bumped in: the urban dance extravaganza You Got Served, which shimmied to the No. 1 slot. Bumped out: last week’s champ, The Butterfly Effect, which dropped to No. 2. Bumped up: Mystic River, Master and Commander, Monster, Lost in Translation, and Girl With a Pearl Earring, whose grosses surged after recent Oscar nods. Bumped around: the swiping-the-SAT saga The Perfect Score, which failed the test with a $4.9 million debut. Bumped off: Owen Wilson’s sandy caper The Big Bounce, which was buried in its first weekend with a lousy $3.3 million take. Yep, it got bumped — and it got served!
