Not surprisingly, Sex and the City took the top spot at the box office (insert double entendre here) this week, doubling many early predictions with a $55.7 million domestic gross. The fashion porn edged out Indiana Jones, which grossed $46 milion (even with a steep 54% Friday-Sunday drop), while the Strangers did better than expected at $20.7 million.
[Sex and the City’s] performance sparked immediate talk of a new film franchise’s birth after the best-ever bow for a romantic comedy or an R-rated comedy of any sort.
Hey, uh, great job on the box office win and all? But I think I speak for everyone when I say that this franchise is well past child-bearing age. At this point, we don’t even want to think about what it had to do to conceive. Eww, icky!
