Entourage, Season 17
Women love him. Men want to be him. Yes, Marky Mark's latest brainless actioner takes the cake at #1 this week. Meanwhile, we get a glimpse into the near future of nostalgia, as 1991's Beauty and the Beast comes in strong at #2. Could Aladdin be next? Somehow, I seriously doubt it; maybe they'll release the second one with Homer as the genie. Tee hee hee! In a surprise to me, 65-year old Dolly Parton hurling rolls at Queen Latifah comes in at #4. Can a sequel to 9 to 5 be far behind? Surely there's a script for it bouncing around Hollywood! Did Colin Higgins leave nothing behind? Last, but not least, Gary Oldman leaves the top 10 all too quickly, but Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher debuts at #10. Will it last only a week? We can only hope. She seems to be taking cues from the The King's Speech playbook. She's running out of Oscar options, or maybe the sky's the limit, who knows? Not enough colorful characters anymore.
