Box OFFICE
Gross in millions of dollars
1. Robots (36.5) - Does Robin
Williams play a really hairy robot?
2. The Pacifier (18) - The
connection between the title and Vin
Diesel: They both involve sucking.
3. Be Cool (10.3) - Know what's
not cool? Mediocre sequels nobody
asked for.
4. Hostage (9.8) - Thankfully for
Bruce Willis, his worst movie is still
"Hudson Hawk."
5. Hitch (8.7) - Eva Mendes
makes for a great actress. And by
actress, we mean "eye candy."
6. Million Dollar Baby (5) - If
"Rocky VI" is half as good as this
movie, it'll be a miracle.
7. Diary of a Mad Black
Woman (5) - Dear Diary: Today
was such a good day. We didn't have
to see this movie.
8. Constantine (3.6) - Gavin
Rossdale plays the devil. It makes
sense - he did marry Gwen Stefani.
9. Man of the House (1.8) - It's
official: Cedric the Entertainer has been
in more bad movies than Ben Stiller.
10. Cursed (1.5) - This movie's
credibility would have been seriously
upped if they called it "Teen Wolf
Three."

Yet, following the fateful shooting

begs the question as to what actually

sort of perverse publicity stunt.
Rap beef's fuel record sales. With-
out an opponent to slam, a lot of the
vitriol and ferocity of a rapper's lyr-
ics are lost. Since the fateful Biggie[

MC has gone out of their way to find
a rival. From Kiy-Z and Nas to 50

First Brad and Jen, then
D~enise Richards and Charlie
Sheen and now Katie Holmes
and Chris Klein. What has been
going on recently to cause
an end to so many perfect
romances? Couples we thought
would last forever are no
more. Side A boasts a mass
of songs reserved for the
possibility that these couples
will come to their senses and
get back together. Side B holds
songs set aside for the bleak
reality that these Hollywood
songs are done for good.
