‘Chihuahua’ Still Top Dog


We hope you like terrible headlines like the one above because Beverly Hills Chihuahua is once again No. 1 at the box office! The Disney comedy made $17.5 million, bringing its cumulative gross to $52.5 million and hilariously defeating the Russell Crowe–Leonardo DiCaprio thriller, Body of Lies, which earned a measly $13.1 million. "I might be overstating things," said Paul Dergarabedian yesterday, presumably in his fancy new office. "But if we ever needed a movie like Beverly Hills Chihuahua, it's right now. How can you think about the mortgage crisis when you're sitting in that movie?" A nation salutes you, Beverly Hills Chihuahua. [AP]
