A Christmas Carol is #1 at the Box Office
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Despite the fact that Jim Carrey looks as creepy in A CHRISTMAS CAROL as Tom Hanks looked in THE POLAR EXPRESS, audiences made Carol #1 at the box office to a tune of $31 million. Michael Jackson’s THIS IS IT came in second with $14 million while THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS and THE FOURTH KIND took the third and fourth spots respectively.
Hopefully, after the disappointing returns on THE BOX, Hollywood will get the hint that Cameron Diaz can’t carry her own film and maybe she can get back to being a supporting actress instead of a lead.
