(AP) English speakers need subtitles to understand the movie and probably Google to know where they've seen the star, if at all.


But this comedy featuring a Mexican actor whose shows have been a TV staple in Mexico for years has taken Hollywood by surprise.


The movie "Instructions Not Included," with Eugenio Derbez as actor, director and one of the writers, has turned in the biggest Spanish-language opening ever in the U.S., according to studio estimates Monday.


It took in $10 million and ranked fifth at the box office, competing with blockbusters such as "The Butler" and Disney animation "Planes" that were shown in 10 times more theaters.
