two reasons -
1. people download stuff for free
2. people are too cheap to pay for anything nowadays
also if you notice this film was put together on a relatively small budget of $30M. if this same film had been put together 5 years ago, it likely would have had a budget of at least double that amount. studios are doing everything they can do adjust to the "Give me everything for free" generations coming up.

quote: Steve Carell isn't quite on Ferrell or Sandler's star power level yet and its been a while since Jim Carrey was a legit box office star.
This. Outside of 40 Year Old Virgin, which was carried by the supporting cast, Carell has done shite in the lead role and nothing of note. He isn't a box office draw because people are starting to understand, whether they admit it or not, that his shite gets old and he isn't funny in large doses.
