The previous weekend's No. 1 flick, The School of Rock, slipped to second place with $15.4 million. The Coen brothers' romantic comedy Intolerable Cruelty, starring George Clooney and Catherine Zeta-Jones, debuted at No. 3 with $13.1 million.

Good Boy!, a family flick featuring the voice of Matthew Broderick as a talking dog from outer space, premiered in fourth place with $13 million. The weekend's other new wide release, the horror tale House of the Dead, opened at No. 6 with $5.5 million.
