Utah-made "Boyfriend" plays a little wider

Here's a local boy does good story: Utah filmmaker Daryn Tufts' "My Girlfriend's Boyfriend" did well enough in its limited opening run at two suburban Salt Lake City theaters that it will open a bit wider this weekend.

The PG-rated romantic comedy, which stars Alyssa Milano as a waitress presented with two dating options, scored $10,300 on its opening weekend at two screens, the Megaplex 17 at Jordan Commons and the Megaplex 20 at The District. That per-screen average, of $5,150, was higher than that of many of the weekend's top 10 films.

Tufts announced Tuesday, via his Twitter feed, that the movie will open this Friday in Lehi, Provo and Ogden.

The rest of the nation will get to see "My Girlfriend's Boyfriend" in December through digital platforms: iTunes, Amazon and video-on-demand.
