The Filthy Critic, in one of his best rants, reviews that sensitive masterpiece, Alone in the Dark. "There are no words in English to describe how fucking awful it is except, perhaps, in the songs of Cannibal Corpse. (Lowest rating, but ...) In retrospect, please add one finger to every other review I've ever done, because none deserve as low a rating as this."

Hide and Seek wins the Weekend Box Office January 28-30.
  • Are We There Yet? dropped to second, but showed tremendous staying power, dropping only 8% from last week! Based on that measurement, "smallest drop in the second week", that movie is one of the top 20 performers since Box Office Mojo started monitoring such things.
  • Clint Eastwood's Million Dollar Baby put up some respectable numbers and finished a very solid third.
  • The expanded distribution of Sideways was not as successful as the Eastwood flick, and it took in only about 2/3 as much per screen. That film took in only about six million for the weekend, finishing well behind week six of the Fockers and week seven of The Aviator.
  • Critics called Alone in the Dark an hilariously amateurish debacle, the studio released it virtually unpromoted, and it has no A-list star, so it delivered predictably dismal box office results - only two million dollars from 2100 screens, opening in 14th place.
  • Say Sayonara to Elektra after another disastrous drop-off.
