Vin Diesel's family comedy has nudged out John Travolta's GET SHORTY sequel
to charge to the top of the newly-released US box office estimates.
THE PACIFIER, in which Diesel plays a NAVY Seal-turned-babysitter, raked
in $30.2 million (GBP15.9 million) in its opening weekend, beating Travolta's
Be Cool by almost $7 million (GBP3.7 million).
Meanwhile, last week's surprise chart-topper DIARY OF A MAD BLACK WOMAN
slips to number four.
The only other new entry in the top 10 is OSCAR winner Adrien Brody's new
thriller The Jacket, which made a disappointing $2.7 million (GBP1.4 million)
in its first weekend.
