Weekend Box Office Results, June 2-4, 2006
  • As a group, the movies tracked a bit above the expectations. That may be attributable to the inaccuracy of the expectations, since the Top 12 are tracking about dead even with last year, as they have been for the past two weekends.
  • X-Men 3 dropped a precipitous 67% from last week. "Event" movies always tail off when the initial core of geekdom is exhausted on opening weekend, but the especially steep drop probably indicates that the word of mouth has not been especially good.
  • The Break-Up overcame bad reviews to exceed expectations and take the #1 spot. Imagine what a good comedy would do! Unfortunately, Hollywood doesn't seem to have any in the wings. The next big comic events are Clerks 2 and that Will Ferrell NASCAR movie, which are more than a month away.
  • The Al Gore movie snuck into the #9 spot, despite being in only 77 theaters. It took in nearly twice as much as Just My Luck, which is in nearly 1000 theaters!

NBA Finals: Heat vs. Mavericks
  • ESPN says: "The Mavs swept the season series -- including a 112-76 rout on Feb. 9 -- and have won 10 of the last 12 meetings. Nowitzki averaged 25 points in the two victories this season. But the Heat are a much different team than the one that struggled against top competition this season -- and nothing like the team Dallas beat 103-90 in November. O'Neal was out with an injury and Riley hadn't yet replaced Stan Van Gundy on the bench."

Wedding Crashers wins big at the 2006 MTV Movie Awards
  • The show airs June 8th at 8:30. Not only is it the most entertaining film award show (by an exponential degree), but it's the only one that actually demonstrates genuine enthusiasm for the films it honors.
  • And, more often than not, it makes better selections than the august Academy.

'Doing Nothing,' by Tom Lutz - The New York Times Book Review
  • So why am I linking to a NY Times Book Review? Because the Times always tries to engage reviewers who are experts in the subject matter. This one was written by an expert on doing nothing - columnist Dave Barry
