Gross in millions of dollars

1. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (25.7) – A red sun rises; money has been made this night.

2. Catch Me If You Can (21.3) – Spielberg is on thin ice, and we shall be under it when it breaks.

3. Two Weeks Notice (11.6) – We’re giving this movie its two-weeks notice for the top 10.

4. Maid in Manhattan (9.0) – “The best romantic comedy since Pretty Woman.” Yeah, and Ebola is the best virus since the Plague.

5. About Schmidt (8.8) – Jack in a rare Ray-Ban-less moment.

6. Gangs of New York (7.4) – Few know that Bill the Butcher spent long, unsuccessful years trying to start a gang as Bill the Candlestick Maker.

7. Drumline (5.6) – A movie about band kids? Nah, too easy.

8. The Wild Thornberrys (5.5) – Give us “Rugrats in Paris” any day.

9. Chicago (5.0) – A musical. With Richard Gere. Great.

10. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (4.5) – “Prisoner of Azkaban” in 2004? We see. Scared of “Return of the King?” You should be.
