And In Limited Release ...

Woody Allen's Whatever Works continued to perform solidly in its second week in 35 theaters, earning $386,286 -- or $11,036 per theater -- to bring its two-week total to $765,433. Opening on 76 screens, the Michelle Pfeiffer costume drama Chéri grossed $408,000 -- or $5,368 per theater. The Stephen Frears movie had received mostly positive reviews on Friday. Roger Ebert in the Chicago Sun-Times gave it 3 1/2 stars and credited much of the film's success to the casting of Michelle Pfeiffer as a middle-aged beauty and Rupert Friend as her younger lover. "The movie is a visual feast," commented Lou Lumenick in the New York Post, "with Oscar-caliber sets and costumes that for many will justify the trip to the [theater]." Claudia Puig in USA Today , however, described the movie as being like Friend's title character -- "an entertaining bauble without much on its mind." And Elizabeth Weitzman in the New York Daily News turned Puig's observation on its head. "The movie's shallow amusements do make for an ideal guilty pleasure," she wrote.
