BOXOFFICE BONANAZA ARCHIVE
JULY

By Marc Flemming


      For the Week Ending: July 9th, 2000 [ KEY ]

1. Scary Movie / $42,500,000
Horror meets "Leslie Nielsen" comedy. And you thought the Farrelly brothers [Dumb and Dumber, There's Something About Mary] were bad. The movie that must have missed the gaze of the censors scares a whopping sum from an audience that must have been too busy laughing to get scared. [Review Me]

WR: New | LWR: NA | T: 2,912 | C: $42.5M

2. Perfect Storm / $27,000,000
Based on a true story. Yes, this film is really about the true story of Dr. Doug Ross taking taking the helm of a fishing boat on his vacation from the ER. Well, maybe not - but it could have been. It's second week in the theaters and Perfect Storm nearly scores perfect and still washes out the likes of Mel Gibson's Patriot: Braveheart Back In Disguise by dropping only a spot to No. 2. [Review Me]

WR: 2 | LWR: 1 | T: 3,407 | C: $100.1M

3. Patriot / $15,500,000
Deja vu for the second week in a row. [Review Me]

WR: 2 | LWR: 2 | T: 3,061 | C: $65.5M

4. Disney's The Kid / $12,500,000
Bruce Willis' annoying little counterpart that Disney undoubtedly picked out of a line-up if 10,000 kids serves as the younger version of himself in a film that depicts what happens when they come face to face in the same time. Bruce Willis looks annoyed throughout the preview, but it leaves me thinking what he might find more annoying - working with a nutty 8 year old or looking through the fine print in his contract that states he must only work with children making their big screen film debuts ... for better or for worse. [Review Me]

WR: New | LWR: NA | T: 2,167 | C: $12.5M

5. Chicken Run / $9,500,000
Mel Gibson provides the voice for one of the star chickens in a film from the creators of Wallace and Grommit. While 'Chicken' run's for the top spot - it makes more of a waddle (Ducks are the only animal that waddle...) for the fifth position in its third week of release. But, holy chicken wings - this movie sure made a bundle over what it must have cost to produce. Not bad for a buncha chickens made outta clay. [Review Me]

WR: 3 | LWR: 4 | T: 2,901 | C: $63.3M

      For the Week Ending: July 2nd, 2000 [
KEY ]

1. Perfect Storm / $41,700,000
Based on a true story. Yes, this film is really about the true story of Dr. Doug Ross taking taking the helm of a fishing boat on his vacation from the ER. Well, maybe not - but it could have been. It's first week in the theaters and Perfect Storm scores perfect and goes straight to the top washing out the likes of Mel Gibson's Patriot: Braveheart Back In Disguise and the other newcomer that is an awfully bold move, Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle. "Hey Rocky! Watch me pull a 'Termination of Employment' notice out of my hat!" [Review Me]

WR: New | LWR: NA | T: 3,407 | C: $41.7M

2. Patriot / $21,700,000
Deja vu. [Review Me]

WR: New | LWR: NA | T: 3,061 | C: $31.0M

[Read Review] 3. Chicken Run / $12,800,000
Mel Gibson provides the voice for one of the star chickens in a film from the creators of Wallace and Grommit. While 'Chicken' run's for the top spot - it makes more of a waddle (Ducks are the only animal that waddle...) for the third position in its second week of release. Not bad for a buncha chickens made outta clay. [Review Me]

WR: 2 | LWR: 2 | T: 2,851 | C: $41.1M

4. Me, Myself and Irene / $12,000,000
'Rubberface' is back in a controvercial film from the likes of the Farrelly brothers [Dumber and Dumber, There's Something About Mary] who have made no indication that they're going to alter the path they have created for themselves when it comes to going over the top and out doing their previous projects. Dropping quickly 3 spots to No. 4 in its second week, the film about an individual with multiple-personality disorder does well - but, this ain't no Adam Sandler flick (The last Sandler film grossed $40 million in the first week of its release.). [Review Me]

WR: 2 | LWR: 1 | T: 3,062 | C: $49.0M

5. Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle / $6,600,000
If there were ever a movie premise that should have been flushed down the toilet - well, you see what I'm saying. I sure wish that one of my scripts had been in the same pile as this one come review time. Some people say that the humor in this film is actually intelligent which leads to a conflict of interest - the film is too smart for the young ones and too incredibly silly for those with intelligence. What to do, what to do. [Review Me]

WR: New | LWR: NA | T: 2,458 | C: $6.6M
