Shining "Star"

 

Well, kinda. The slowest weekend box office in the past two years, the new David Spade comedy (which I enjoyed) took the top spot. Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star opened in first with a very meager 6.6 million. Lukewarm reviews probably didn't help it so much. Taking a major dip was last weekend's champ, Jeepers Creepers II - only taking in 6.5 million over the weekend. But those Pirates Of The Caribbean are still going strong, ranking in third place with 5.7 million and outpassing "The Matrix Reloaded" to be the second biggest film of the summer, and quite possibly the year.

Closing in on 100 million is Freaky Friday which brought in 5 million over the weekend, while S.W.A.T. brought in another 4.7 million. Heath Ledger's latest, The Order, tanked with 4.6 million (you know a movie is pretty bad when studios don't even screen it for critics). Next up was Open Range with 4.2 million and then Seabiscuit with 3.7 million. Rounding out the top ten were Freddy Vs. Jason and Uptown Girls, each with respective takes of 3.2 and 2.4 million.

While this past weekend isn't a promising start to the fall movie season, things are bound to pick up next weekend. Will Robert Rodriguez have another hit on his hand with "Once Upon A Time In Mexico"? As always, stay tuned DVD fans!
