Discs Are Rated
May 1st, 2001
Weekend Box Office
Despite some harsh reviews, Driven rose to first
place with 12.2 million. It's been awhile since Stallone
wirrten a movie, and it seems audience wanted a dose of
action for the weekend. In second was Bridget Jones's
Diary with 7.5, followed by Spy Kids and Along
Came A Spider with respectable grosses of 5.8 and 5.6
million. Crocdile Dundee In Los Angeles was in fifth
place with a meager 4.7.
Blow was sixth with 3.4, while two other new
releases bombed and tied with one another. The teen thriller
The Forsaken and Town & Country each made
three million... not impressive, and also considering the
huge, troublesome history of "Town & Country" (it was
delayed thirteen times, budget doubled to around 90
millionfilm reels stolen while filming, three years in the
making, no premiere etc). Looks like New Line is losing
their shirts... especially after the "Little Nicky
Rounding out the top ten were two gross-out comedies,
Joe Dirt and Freddy Got Fingered, each with
2.7 and 2.5 million.
