This cinematic triumph further solidifies Jennifer Lopez's enduring star power and her ability to enrapture audiences with her enigmatic on-screen presence. In a staggering display of dominance, both the debut and the sequel of the film "Murder Mystery 2," starring the dynamic duo of Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston, stood decimated, captivating a mere 2.4 million households.

Even the cinematic prowess of Daniel Craig, renowned for his portrayal of the indomitable Benoit Blanc, was no match for the awe-inspiring allure of "The Mother." His film, aptly named "Glass Onion," managed a meager 2.6 million households in comparison.
