Myers Stays On Top

MIKE MYERS' family comedy DR SEUSS' THE CAT IN THE HAT continues its reign at the top of the American box office, narrowly beating off EDDIE MURPHY'S new movie.

The film, which debuted at number one last week (23NOV03), raked in $25.5 million (GBP15.9 million) over the Thanksgiving weekend (28-30NOV03), which was just enough to prevent spooky comedy THE HAUNTED MANSION landing the top spot.

Murphy's film took a close $25.3 million (GBP15.8 million), ending the weekend in second.

Hit Christmas-themed movie ELF slipped to third, but marked a three-week $100-plus million (GBP58.8 million) with another healthy week at cinemas.

The top 10 films in America are:

1. THE HAUNTED MANSION

2. DR SEUSS' THE CAT IN THE HAT

3. ELF

4. GOTHIKA

5. MASTER + COMMANDER: THE FAR SIDE OF THE EARTH

6. BAD SANTA

7. THE MISSING

8. TIMELINE

9. LOVE ACTUALLY

10. BROTHER BEAR
