None of the new releases were able to reach the top five and only four were able to reach the top 30 on this week's sales chart. This left Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel in first place for the third week row as it sold an additional 263,000 units, lifting its running tally to 3.22 million units sold for $54.59 million total.

Another slow week when it comes to first-run releases, the biggest of which is Pirate Radio, which opened in just under 900 theaters and made just over $8 million at the box office. The only other new release of interest is Defendor, which is coming out on DVD in the States and also on Blu-ray in Canada, the latter of which is the Puck of the Week.

Russel Crowe has a number of smaller roles and bit parts in some movies that failed to generate much heat at the bxo office, but it wasn't till L.A. Confidential came around that most people noticed him. Two years after that, he earned an Oscar nomination for The Insider. A year after that, he won for Gladiator. And a year after that, he was nominated for the third time for A Beautiful Mind. However, since then his record with moviegoers has been a bit spotty with a number of films that have missed expectations, sometimes disastrously so. Even so, it is a surprise that Tenderness was released in just one theater over one weekend in December last year. Did the studio really have such little regard for the film that they didn't even bother trying to open it wide? If so, was this warranted?
