With Valentine’s Day coming on a weekend, it was clear that the weekend would be full of romantic and chick flicks, along with one remake about a robot-man with a big gun. Regardless, the movie that won the weekend was not a date movie but a family movie as The Logo Movie took its second straight weekend.

The Lego Movie finished strong with $48.8 million in its second weekend, only a 29 percent drop proving that word-of-mouth is strong with this one.

That is not to say that the main chick flick of the weekend did not do well, because About Last Night finished with a strong $27 million. It looks like Kevin Hart is a real movie draw. This was the largest romantic comedy opening weekend since Think Like a Man in 2012, which also starred Hart. He also starred in this week’s sixth place movie Ride Along, so for now Kevin Hart = money.

RoboCop finished with a disappointing $21.5 million to finish third, the more straight romantic movie Endless Love finished fifth with $13.3 million and the fantasy movie Winter’s Tale finished in seventh with $7.7 million.

Here’s the complete weekend box office breakdown:
