The children's fantasy film enters at the top of the box office on its debut with £2.7 million pound which is low for both star Jack Black and director Rob Letterman.
Black has his next film Kung Fu Panda 3 about to be released in the UK which will most likely debut much higher and be a bigger hit.
British favourite Dads Army gets a big screen remake this week and enters the box office at number 2 with just over £2 million.
The World War 2 film starring Toby Jones and Catherine Zeta Jones, as well as a whole host of British talent, has maybe performed below expectations but will most likely hang around for a fair few weeks.
Last week top film, The Revenant, fall to number 3 this week after 3 weeks at the top, but with Oscar just round the corner there could be a resurgent later in February.
Highest total grossing film on the box office is Star Wars: The Force Awakens which has now taken an incredible $120 million in the UK and is at number 6 this week.

Having already spent a week at the top Gnomeo and Juliet climb back up with a half term weekend take of £2,502,806 which boosts its takings over 3 weeks to a very health £12,901,447.
Last week top film falls to number two, clearly not being as kiddie friendly as the Gnomes with a gross of £2,073,462 giving it a 10 day total of £10,110,433.
Highest new entry of the week is the sci-fi thriller I am Number Four which should have appealed in numbers to the teen on half term but has a fairly mellow debut with £1,628,523.
Yogi Bear kept the kids happy over the school break and adds another £1,465,863 to its £7,635,574 total at 4 and Tangled completes a very kid friendly top 5 with £1,352,104 for a very impressive £19,130,723 total.
Again this week's box office was way above this time last year when Avatar was still at the top and closing in on being the first UK film to take £100 million at the box office, while Peter Jacksons The Lovely Bones climbed to number 2. Horror film The Crazies debuted at 3 and The Frog Princess and Percy Jackson hung around the top 5.
Retaining it number 2 spot is The Kings Speech which is still managing to impress, not only at the box office but at the continuous awards ceremonies at this time of year, a weekend take of £2,739,204 brings its gross of 5 weeks to £30,014,606.
Highest new entry of the week The Fighter, another Oscar contender for many awards the film stars Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale and is directed by David O. Russell. A weekend take of £ 2,118,140 is good considering the competition.
Black Swan drops a single place to 4 with £1,725,630 while new at 5 is the James Cameron presented Sanctum, it's not doing the same numbers as a Cameron directed film and is maybe a little disappointing with £ 859,064.
Again this weeks box office is a little higher than this time last year where Avatar was still the top film and still raking in a weekend take of over £4million. Highest new entry was Disney's The Frog Princess with Astro Boy following and Invictus not far behind. Sherlock Holmes was still hanging onto the top 5.
The new traditional film, as in hand drawn rather than CGI (although computers were used in the production) is the story of Rapunzel, although I think this Rapunzel is a little less the princess in the tower type. Over the weekend is tool a respectable £5,106,612.
Falling to number 2 this week after 3 weeks on top is The King's Speech, a weekend gross of £ 3,634,265 takes it's total to £24,905,378. With many awards in the bag and many more to come expect this to hang around for a while and gross a lot more.
Also in award contention is the number 3 film Black Swan, Natalie Portman is picking up actress awards left right and center and its gross reflects this with £2,566,346 last weekend and £7,305,659 in total.
Jason Statham makes a debut at 4 this week with The Mechanic taking £921,554 and The Dilemma is at 5 taking £669,368 expanding its gross to £2,292,011. This weeks box office is quite a bit up on last years where Avatar was still at the top but slowing down and Mel Gibson was the highest new entry with Edge of Darkness.
