Mark Wahlberg's videogame adaptation Max Payne managed to unseat Beverly Hills Chihuahua after the talking-dog movie had been at the top of the weekend box office for two weeks in a row. But no other new release did better than a third helping of Chihuahua. I'm starting to wonder if there's something wrong with me for not thinking that movie could possibly be good. But I'm going to stick with what I said last week: The problem lies with America.
This Friday's movie releases have something for everyone. For the politics-loving conspiracy theorist, there's W., Ollie Stone's take on the current president. For horny teenage boys -- hell, for horny boys of all ages -- there's Sex Drive, a teenage sex comedy whose red-band clip on the Internet features a woman giving the film's heavy set protagonist a Lewinsky before using him as a human toilet (I'm not kidding). And for the ladies, there's 40-year old Dakota Fanning in The Secret Life of Bees. Choose wisely, because something's gotta get that damn Chihuahua off the top of the chart.
