Dogs took a big bite out of the weekend box office derby--literally.
Disney's "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" topped all flicks over the weekend, pulling in a respectable $29 million and knocking last week's No. 1 movie, "Eagle Eye" into the No. 2 spot with $17.7 million. Rounding out the top five "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist," "Nights in Rodanthe" and "Appaloosa."
"Lakeview Terrace" dipped a few notches to No. 6, raking in $4.5 million. Spike Lee's "Miracle at St. Anna," dropped from ninth to eleventh. Lee's war epic made just over a million, bringing its two-week total to just over $6 million.
"Beverly Hills Chihuahua," which gave Disney its best October opening ever, is an animated feature about a Beverly Hills dog who gets lost while on vacation in Mexico. Among the stars lending there voices to this effort are: Drew Barrymore, Andy Garcia, George Lopez, Loretta Devine, Cheech Marin, Paul Rodriguez and Edward James Olmos.
