this sort of surprises me, I thought it would be bigger.

Private Parts, Howard Stern's movie version of
his life and art
drew a box office of $15.1 million in its
opening weekend,
according to Exhibitor Relations, no
blockbuster but a good
showing. The minimum gross for a film to be
considered viable is
usually $10 million in its first outing.

Stern knocked the mighty The Empire Strikes
Back from its
number-one position down to number four, with
an $8 million take.
In three weeks of re-release, the film has
grossed $51.7 million.

Jungle 2 Jungle, the comedy from Tim Allen,
defied bad reviews to
pull in $12.7 million, second place after
Parts, in its debut
weekend. Mob story Donnie Brasco was in third
with $8.2 million.

Rounding out the list of the top ten: Booty
Call ($4.3 million),
Star Wars ($4 million), Absolute Power ($3.7
million), Dante's
Peak ($3.3 million), Vegas Vacation ($2.4
million) and--in a
tie--Marvin's Room and Fools Rush In ($2.3
